What is True for You?

What is dis-ease?
What creates lack of peace?
What causes inner conflict?
What causes fear?

How do we hurt ourselves?
How do we heal ourselves?
How do we do no harm?
How do we experience no harm?

We must reveal in order to heal.
We must stop deceiving ourselves.
We must know we do not know.
We must let go of what we make so.

Now is a time when we cannot be certain.
Now is the place where things change constantly.
Now is the moment in which we must listen within.
Now is our time to honestly begin to be true.

So what do we know?
We know we do not know.
We can try to convince others that our truth is true.
We can try to believe what we want to be true.

But we do not know.
All things change.
Everything we think can be questioned.
Our certainty is flawed.

So with doubt in mind, where do we go?
With fear in our hearts, what do we trust?
With confusion and complexity, what is clear?
With split loyalty and allegiance, what is certain?

The more we pretend, the more we believe what we say.
The louder we claim righteousness, the more we buy our own story.
The stronger we push, the more we feel our own power.
Yet, underneath it all, “We protest too much.”

In our defensiveness, we lose our way.
In our complexity, we are caught in the web.
In our ignorance, we become confuse and uncertain.
In our separation from Self, we listen to many voices.

Before I can “know”, I must admit not knowing.
Before I can seek, I must find my real Self.
Before I can live, I must let the past die.
Before I can be, I must give up trying to become.

Life is an amazing story of creation.
Everyday in everyway I am new again.
It is the birth of the Divine, the Sacred and Holy that inspires my mind.
It is the realization of unlimited freedom and trust that brings great Joy to my Heart.

Loving us all in our daily renewal,
Betty Lue
The 12 Principles of Attitudinal Healing

1.       The essence of our being is love.
2.       Health is inner peace, healing is letting go of fear.
3.       Giving and receiving are the same.
4.       We can let go of the past and of the future.
5.       Now is the only time there is, and each instant is for giving.
6.       We can learn to love ourselves and others by forgiving rather than by judging.
7.       We can become love finders rather than fault finders.
8.       We can choose and direct ourselves to be peaceful inside, regardless of what is happening outside.
9.       We are students and teachers to each other.
10.    We can focus on the whole of life, rather than the fragments.
11.    Since love is eternal, change need not be viewed as fearful.
12.    We can always perceive others as either extending love or giving a call for help.

Attitudinal Healing affirms that we are responsible for our thoughts and whatever feelings we experience.
Attitudinal Healing encourages us to re-examine our relationships, bringing them into the present by releasing past judgments and grievances.
Attitudinal Healing reminds us that perception is a mirror of what is in our mind.
