I trust all change works together for Good.
I seek the Good in all change.
I enjoy the freedom to change.
I appreciate my flexibility and willingness.

Changing with Ease

Change happens with our Willingness!
Change happens with our Allowance!
Change happens with Letting Go!
Change happens with Trust!

Consistency is the ground of our Being.
Change occurs with consistent willingness.
Trust is the way we adapt to change.
When we trust consistently, we are willing to change.

Letting go with gratitude eases us into change.
Allowing with trust releases uncertainty.
Remembering what to trust is essential to letting go.
Being free to change our minds gives us the power to correct our path.

Consistency and Change work together.
When we are consistent in our self support, we can change easily.
When we are consistent in our trust, we can adapt to change.
When we are aware of our choices, we are wise in our change.

Trust yields confidence.
Freedom offers choice.
Consistency provides stability.
Change gives us new choices.

Life can be growthful or stuck.
Choices can be freeing or limiting.
Minds can open or closed.
Change can be awakening or unconscious. 

When change occurs:
Stabilize with basic routines.
Keep some areas exactly the same.
Give yourself some time to plan and prepare.
Reassure yourself with what is familiar.
Be Responsible for the change by joining in.
Talk about the feelings, both positive and negative.
Make a list of what you want the change to yield.
Create alternatives to what is planned if not good for you.
Explore your options before, during and after the changes.
Reward yourself for allowing change and forgiving mistakes.
Remind yourself by affirming: “Everything works more exquisitely than I can plan.”
Look for the positives and eliminate focusing on the negatives.
Contribute and appreciate what is good for you with courage, gratitude and peace.

Loving you in your willingness,
Betty Lue

The Way of Water
Excerpts and adaptations from
The Book of Changes and The Unchanging Truth by Taoist Master Hua Ching Ni

(Hexagram 60: Self-Restraint)

To know is to do and to do is to be. If our knowledge or spirituality and morality cannot be manifested in our daily lives through our thoughts, attitudes and behavior, it means that we do not truly know them. Regardless of our external circumstances, we should keep our virtue constant.

The reason all creatures dies is because they allow their external environment to continually change their nature and virtue. People are tempted by the outside world and do not feel contentment and sufficiency within their own being.

To be virtuous means that we follow the constant, middle way, not allowing ourselves to run into extremity. We spontaneously maintain all of our simple, daily activities within our energy track of life and follow the universal principle of normalcy.

(Hexagram 29: The Abyss)

Nine Natural Virtues of Water
1.       Be content with a “low” position = Be free from competition.
2.       Remain profound = Quiet, deep, undisturbed.
3.       Give generously = Without expecting return.
4.       Speak faithfully = Tell the highest Truth.
5.       Govern gently = Persistent gentleness overcomes even the hardest obstacles.
6.       Work capably and adaptably = Maintain direction and true nature in any circumstance.
7.       Take action opportunely = Flow into openings and around obstacles.
8.       Never fight = Neither attack nor resist.
9.       Remain ocean-bound = Seek to re-unite with the Whole, the One.

“To follow the way of water is to return to one’s spiritual essence.”
