I listen within and say and do what I know to be true.
I trust in my inner voice that guides me to teach only love.
I listen first and always respond with what is true and whole and loving.
I give love in the way that is most easily received.

Is Anyone Listening?

Strange things are happening everyday.
Children are crying from lack of love.
Elders are sitting alone in the dark.
People are yelling and hurting each other.

Is anyone listening?
Are we so conditioned to pain, we are numb?
Have we gone to sleep on what is wrong?
Are we hoping someone else will fix it for us?

Plenty of wine makes the pain tolerable.
Turn up the music and you cannot hear the cries.
Play enough games and watch more TV and you will not see.
Just walk away and hope and pray it goes away.

Who is there for you?
Who it there for them?
Who is your teacher, helper and friend?
Where do you go to listen and hear?

Can you help someone?
A batch of cookies to a college student.
A thank you note from someone who cares.
A smile and a hug to the elder who is alone.

Listen inside and see what gives inside you.
Do you remember what it feels like to really give from the heart?
Do you hear the voice of innocence asking for simple kindness and love?
Do you know how to respond when you see an unfulfilled need?

Are you caught in comfort and greed, forgetting to give?
Are you afraid to give from worry about the cost to you?
Is it scary to care and share when you see so many needs?
Are you willing to risk a little time and energy, resources and love?

When I listen to you, I know I can make a difference.
When I listen to me, I know there is more to do.
When I listen to our world, I see how we must respond.
When I listen to God and Goodness within, “right” living everyday is key.

When I am quiet and ask: “What Can I Do?”,  I know what is mine to be and do and give.
When I listen within to my heart’s desire, It is “Love  and Serve Everyone Well”
When I listen to the Earth, she tells me to “Appreciate all I have and be a good steward.”
When I listen to you, “I know You, I hear You, I simply Love You!”

Listen and you will know what is Yours to do.
Each one of us can do something.
One drop in the bucket may save a life.
Your little part may give your life back with abundance and joy the reward!

I love you for living and giving with Love.
Betty Lue

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.
