Be What You Seek

Are you seeking in another what you are unwilling to be?
Are you trying to find what you need to develop in you?
Are you trying to get what you need to give to yourself?
Are you looking for what you want outside yourself?

We fall in love with what we find outside that fits our needy mind.
We adore when someone else gives us what we are looking for.
We are attached to having the love and respect, we fail to give ourselves.
We crave the pleasure we fail to give ourselves.

Will it ever be enough when it is ephemeral and ever changing?
Can we find security in knowing that others change as much as we do?
Are you seeking for what is lasting in the temporary and fickle pleasures?
Can we ever  be satisfied with what seems illusive and emotionallydirected?

When you commit, commit to your Self.
When you depend, depend on You being Good to You.
When you trust, trust that the Love in you is enough.
When you Love, Love the one You are unconditionally and never falter.

When you swear you will always and only Love, trust, depend and commit to you, you are free.
When you can give yourself the best you have, you will see others need to learn the same.
When you see all relationships are the learning ground for loving ourselves, we will wake up.
When we wake up to our own ability to respond to all things with Love, we will be at peace.

We are always in relationship with ourselves.
We are here to love, trust and respect ourselves.
We can only give what we have inside.
We receive only what we believe we deserve to have.

All relationships are teaching us what we believe about ourselves.
All relationships give us a picture of what we need to heal.
All relationships are an out-picturing of what we feel is true.
All relationships show us where we have lied and deprived or responded with love to ourselves.

We can change our agreements.
We can change our mind.
We can change our behavior.
We can change our choices.

What will it be?
Seeking for love, trust, respect and appreciation from one who is unaware or incapable?
Seeking the best from someone who is giving themselves the worst?
Seeking for commitment who falters in their commitment to themselves?

Let us count on the One who knows us best.
Count on the Love, trust, respect and appreciation within you.
Count on the one who will be true and committed to you.
When you cannot trust, love, respect and appreciate you, it is time to forgive yourself everyday.

Forgiving us for seeking for love in all the wrong places,
Betty Lue

PS When you truly Love your healed and Holy Self, you know everyone is loving you the best they know!  I do.

You Are A Flower in the Garden of Life

If you would grow to be your best self
Be patient, not demanding
Accepting, not condemning
Nurturing, not withholding
Self-marveling, not belittling
Gently guiding, not pushing & punishing

For you are more sensitive than you know
Mankind is tough as war
Yet delicate as flowers
We can endure agonies
But we open fully only to warmth & light
And our need to grow is fragile as a fragrance
Dispersed by storms of will
To return only when those storms are still

So accept, respect,
Attend your sensitivity

A flower
Cannot be opened
With a hammer
