What Do You Do?

I see and know and do what is Right and True.
I make a difference with every thought, word and deed.
I choose to be the one who is willing to make the change for good.
I am willing to stop all childish behavior and be a responsible conscientious adult.

When the problems seem overwhelming….
When life gives you more than you can handle….
When the drama gets too much……
What do you do?

People you love can be hurt or in trouble.
The government can fight like petulant kids.
Finances can see out of control.
Your home may be a chaotic mess.

What are you going to do?
Do you yell and swear and blame?
Do you withdraw with guilt and shame?
Do you stand your ground and say enough?

Yes, you have choices.
Do you make matters worse with your own emotional reactions?
Do you run away, avoid and deny your responsibility?
Do you stop, look around, listen within and respond in an adult way?

Much of our culture has been teaching falsely to act out your emotions.
People have a habit of soothing their anxiety  and upset with pills, alcohol and other addictions.
Many criticize, accuse, blame and make wrong their partners and kids, bosses and leadership.
True conscious adults (of all ages) respond with wisdom and courage, centered and grounded.

It does no good to hide in the cloak of denial.
It serves no one to blur oneself in self medication.
It creates re-wounding and repetition to use, guilt, blame and punishment.
All must wake up, learn and practice choosing anew.

Instead of complaining and whining and playing “poor me”, ask “What Can I do?”
Instead of drowning your sorrows in partying or passive behavior, ask “How can I be truly helpful?”
Instead of having a tantrum, being aggressive with anger, or cowering in fear, ask “ What can I do?”
You and I can practice patience, healing, forgiveness, kindness, compassion and trust.

Let us learn to use our thoughts to see and create more good.
Let us use our words to bring more consciousness and connection.
Let us use our behavior to be really helpful, constructive and generous.
Let us be the ones to make a real difference, right in our own families and neighborhood.

We all have pain and sorrow.
We need not suffer by sitting in squalor mentally, physically or emotionally.
We can clean up our own mess today and everyday. (in our minds, our home and our relationships)
We can be the change we want to see in our lives.

Today is your day to begin.  
Make your life matter by making the choices and changes you want to see and be everyday.
I love and respect you for doing what you know is right and good and true for you and all.

With continued practice, there will be a greater peace and understanding.

Forgiveness heals our perception and gives us Response-Ability.

Daily Practice:

Begin each morning with a pad of lined paper and a pen.
Write and say 30 forgivenesses as they come to mind. 
Simply write “I forgive”…and let the rest just come from within. 
(No need to understand or feel anything.)
I forgive you for being mean.
I forgive myself for letting anyone hurt me.
I forgive my body’s limitation.
I forgive myself for being late.
I forgive everything.
Make the sound “AAAH” for 1minutes.
Imagine that you are opening your mind.
Now write and say 30 Choices. 
I choose to be happy. 
I choose to be free.  
I choose to do what I love. 
I choose to forgive….

In the Evening (before bed)
Write and say 30 Gratitudes
I appreciate the energy I have.
I love being happy.
I am grateful I have you in my life.
I thank God.
Make the  sound “OM” the Universal sound for Love and God for 1 minute.

PS Even a few of each is better than none.  
Do what you can and trust it is working.
Even when you are driving to work, you can do this process aloud.
The key is your willingness to DO THE WORK!

Loving You always, Betty Lue
