April Fool’s Day

I see what I want to see.
I see what I believe.
I prefer to see the opening and the possibility.
I choose to see things more expansively. 

What Do You Know?

How do you know what you know?
Who do you trust to know what you think you know?
Are you aware of your sources and resources?
I love to learn what we think we know.

I recognize I don’t really know anything more than what others want me to know.
I have an intuitive sense of what is beneath the knowing.
I can feel the energy of mystery, deceit, cover up, uncertainty and questioning. 
The child in me wants to believe and so I allow myself to consider what is believable.

More often than not, I “know” or think I know based on what I have experienced.
At this time, I have opened my mind to “not know”. and am willing to learn.
I hear what people say.
I trust what people try to “sell”.
I value what people believe in.
But mostly I get what people have chosen to believe.

I understand that I can be fooled.
I have experienced being surprised and even shocked.
I know what is being preached and taught and even demanded.
I look more for the underlying belief rather than the facts.

When we are passionate, we often sell our beliefs.
When we are fearful, we often demand others believe like us.
When we are hopeful, we try to inspire others to agree with us.
When we are ignorant, we often listen only at the surface.

I love to be inspired.
I like to know what you believe.
I prefer to be happy.
I believe things will improve as we learn to make wise, conscious and helpful choices.  

Life experiences have shown me that I am trusting and even gullible.
Hope and optimism have given me a positive viewpoint. 
I shine a light on everything to see more from which to discern.
I prefer to look on the bright side to be enlightened.

The more I see, the more I know from which I can respond.
The more I forgive my judgments, the more I can trust and free.
The more we trust and free us all, the more we seem to be able to choose.
Let us all choose to listen, learn, love and let go.

Loving us as we learn to trust and choose freely what to believe.
Betty Lue

I have learned: “What we believe, works for us.”
So choose what you want to believe.
Do what allows you to Feel Good.

1. Focus on my successes rather than on my failures.
2. Notice that which I have accomplished rather than that which I’ve left undone.
3. See and acknowledge my beauty rather than focusing on my imperfections.
4. Notice and acknowledge all the times I’ve followed the optimum conditions, rather than judging myself for the times I have not.
5. Acknowledge all my wins each and every day.
6. Create and maintain an environment that nurtures me.
7.  See problems as opportunities to learn from rather than as obstacles to avoid.
8.  Tell the whole truth on a moment to moment basis in order to maintain impeccable and loving relationships.
9. Be conscious every moment to put positive thoughts into my mind rather than negative, knowing all thoughts are creative.
10.  Appreciate my feelings as a means of understanding myself, thus directing and creating my reality.
11. Continue to forgive myself and others as a means of creating a state of Grace.
12. Fill my life with joy and ecstasy by practicing daily the art and skill of verbally expressing my gratitude for all that I have.
