Extend Peace

Love is the answer whatever the question.
Peace will settle every problem now.
Life is a journey with no destination, so I enjoy it all.
Coming home to the peace within is my goal.
When everything seems to tumble and fall, land lightly.
When your household seems to rattle and shake, remember what matters.
When the world seems to be in turmoil and conflict, bring your peace.
You make a difference in the most difficult situations and relationships.

Be calm.
Be wise.
Be kind.
Be peace.

What the world needs now is love, sweet love.
What our families needs now is kindness and respect.
What everyone needs now is to remember what matters.
What you need now is to find your reservoir of peace within.

Life offers challenges, so that we get stronger and climb higher.
Life brings conflicts, so that we get clear about our choices.
Life teaches us lessons, to develop our powers of awareness.
Life shows us our mistakes, so that we learn to forgive.

We have many opportunities to calm the waters of our emotions.
We are given many different answers to become wiser and more conscious.
We meet myriads of people from many unique backgrounds to encourage more compassion.
We have difficulties and upsets in our relationships to learn to extend peace.

Everyone approaches challenges in our own learned patterns.
Some need to step away and calm themselves.
Some need to gather information and education to be more wise.
Some simply reach out to understand with gentleness and love.
Some go within to find and extend their trust and inner peace.

Observe what works for you in the midst of crisis.
Notice how you make decisions when there are conflicts.
Understand how you can calm yourself to be respectful.
Be present with your own process to find the most effective ways for you.

The tendency is to look to an authority for help.
The reliance is often put upon the elder or teacher, government or God.
The fear of harm and victimization comes for learned incompetence or weakness.
The strength is found deep within our reliance on the power and peace within.

When you don’t know what to do, come home to you.
When you cannot understand, seek peace in your own mind.
When you get lost in the complexity of possibility, choose the highest path you know.
When you are filled with fear and desperation, forgive everything and be grateful.

Life is serious and stuck only when we forget our inner resources.
Claim your wisdom and trust in the highest outcome now.
Understand you are abundant in possible creative solutions.
Forgive your fears so your mind and body get clear to act for the Good of All.

Life is for giving and You are the Gift, no matter what.
Loving you and me and never quitting on Love, 
Betty Lue

You can translate Love into Peace and it will work just as well.

There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer;
No disease that enough love will not heal;
No door that enough love will not open;
No gulf that enough love will not bridge;
No wall that enough love will not throw down;
No sin that enough love will not redeem.

 It makes no difference
  how deeply seated may be the trouble,
How hopeless the outlook,
How muddled the tangle,
How great the mistake.
A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all.

 If only you could love enough, you would be the happiest
and most powerful being in the world.
