Many Translations, Many Points of View

What do you choose to see?
What is your preference?
When you hear another’s perspective, how do you listen?
Are you open and willing to truly understand?

Being a translator for Goodness sake is an art form.
Being willing to see and hear and feel another’s perspective requires willingness.
Being open to allowing another to be received with Love is a gift of forgiveness.
When we can fully give loving attention to all ways, we see only God and goodness.

Robert and I used to look for inspirational movies, which we called “God Movies”.
We went looking for the God, the Goodness, the inspiration in everything.
This life “game” created a filter that was able to perceive beneath the apparency.
When we look with “xray” vision for wholeness, goodness and beauty, there it is!

First, there may be judgment and opinions.
There must come erasing and forgiveness of the errors in our minds.
Then we need to see with neutrality and peace, no attachment to our point of view.
Then we will indeed see what is beneath the surface, the need, the gift, the blessings, the calling.

Life offers infinite opportunities to clear away the junk and debris of the past.
Life encourages us to stop stock piling or fencing off our garbage and let it Go.
Being garbage collectors, we continue to see that which is gone and was in the past.
Being hoarders, we refuse to release what we believed was of value, even when its use is done.

Keeping anything that does not serve us is a heavy weight to bear.
Storing, remembering and preserving unhealthy stuff holds us stuck in the manure of the past.
Trying to remember past errors, yours and mine, keeps it in place as defense (the fence) against Love.
When we believe remembering past errors, prevents future errors, we increase their repetition.

How can you see beyond mistakes?
Perhaps mistakes are on purpose?
Perhaps the difficulties in life are helpful?
Perhaps we need to learn from everything by seeking its blessing?

If there were only one prayer to ask of our inner Being, the Creator within, consider:

“May I change my need and be willing to see only that which is Good and beautiful and Holy!”
May I heal my mind and be willing to trust in the Goodness and God in all things.
May I enjoy my life with the curiosity and wonder of a child, with the natural forgiveness of an innocent being, with the openness and trust of One who lives in Love.
May my life, my thoughts, words and deeds, reflect that of one who seeks only to Love, trust and be free.”
As I have asked, so I will receive.  And it is Good.

Betty Lue

B’Lue’s Translation of the Lord’s Prayer

Creator and Source of All That Is True and Loving.
You live within my very Being and create through my thoughts, words and actions.
I give my Whole Self to serve only Good in all places and with all people.
So we all experience the Joy and freedom of heaven here and now.

May we feed ourselves Living Truth that sustains our wholeness.
May we erase the errors of our ways and our mistaken identity.
May we see all that is given is a gift unto ourselves.
May we be guided by the Goodness and Light of Eternal Love.

Love is our Power.
Goodness is our Glory.
Always and forever,
And So It Is.

Can You See the Good?

Are you willing to find the Good in all things?
Are you open to seeking for God in All That Is?
Can you see beyond the judging mind and find the Truth?
Is it possible that you have attached to being right?

We are taught to believe what you see.
We are taught to believe the behavior and not the words.
We are taught to trust our perceptions.
We are taught that there is a singular truth.

Is it possible that we all see through our filters?
Is it possible that our attitude, our beliefs and history distort what we see?
Is it possible that there is no universal truth?
Is it possible that we all are making up our own pictures of “reality”?

We look for what is wrong and we find what is wrong.
We seek to analyze, fix and change what is incorrect.
We believe that our function is to correct others’ wrongs.
We work at trying to figure out and stop others’ mistakes.

Mistaken perceptions, ideas, beliefs, words, behavior all seem to take our time.
Problems that need solutions consume our scientists and researchers.
Humanities errors and sins seem to requires time, energy and money to “fix”.
What is we are increasing and intensifying mistakes in our need to correct them.

We are here to create Goodness, Beauty and Wholeness.
We are creating our experiences with our perceptions and judgments.
We are co-creating our world with our attachment to our function of making “right”.
What if we simply need to trust in the Good, choosing to see things differently?

Could the answers we seek be simply a breath away?
Could it be that with a change of mind, we can see wholeness?
Could it be that when we stop judging, we can see perfection?
Could it be that seeing things differently is a choice we can make?

Seeing goodness is a choice, an attitude, a release of cloudy judgmental filters.
Seeing beauty is a choice, a change of mind to see the natural beauty in all things.
Seeing God and Goddess, Good and Goodness, in All that Is, is merely stepping above the mess.
Do you translate into Good or into Bad, into White or into Black, into Right or Wrong?

Some see the glass half empty and some see it as half full.
Some see it with judgment and fear.
Some see it with curiosity and enjoyment.
Some simply wonder what it tastes like.

If there is nothing to fix, what is there to do.
If there is nothing to complain about, what is there to talk about.
If there is nothing wrong, what can we make right.
If all is well, let us simply enjoy our lives and be happy with one another.

Loving you, 
Betty Lue

No Fighting Please!

Sure, it is hot.
Yes, some are addicted to arguing.
Even those who don’t like to fight often want to be “right”.
Some even thrive on the “make up sex.”

Fighting is a waste of energy and a killer of intimacy and trust.
Fighting is the need to be right.
Fighting is trying to make the other lose.
Fighting is risking the relationship in order to win.

Fighting never results in greater respect.
Fighting leads to loss of safety and trust.
Fighting leads to more fighting for victory.
Fighting causes both parties to lose in the end.

How do you stop fighting?
It only takes ONE.
If there is no counter attack. there is no fight.
There is no need to make anyone wrong.

Set rules which work.
State your opinion once only.
When the other counters your opinion, drop your position.
Acknowledge that you can see their viewpoint and let it go.

When two people argue, they are just stubbornly needing to make the other lose or give in.
When two people fight about anything, they are simply encouraging resistance.
When two people fight over a fact, they are perceiving things from their own point of view.
When two people conflict over values, they have a values difference.

There is only the need to agree to disagree.
Two people will perceive ideas, beliefs, truths, situations, history and conversations differently.
Two people will hear the same words and view the same situation totally different.
We are all seeing, hearing, feeling and thinking through our own unique filters.

When you want to hear the other’s perception or truth, ask and listen.
Never argue if you want them to trust you are a safe place to share.
Step away from disagreeing unless there is the potential harm to someone or something.
Stop after one expression of disagreement….no followup, no attempt to understand or fix.

Let it go.
Love works when we trust and free ourselves and others to be, do, have and learn our own way.
Love works when we listen always with a need to understand and not to be understood.
Love requires enough maturity to stop trying to convince, change or get others to agree with us.

Love is more important than winning.
Love works best when it is top priority.
Love is the key to healing nations, people, religions and relationships.
Always seek for a win/win solution with no loss to anyone.

Loving us all as we let go of our need to be right!
Betty Lue
Try this instead of arguing to remind You!

¤      I love you      ¤
and I know you love me too.


The freedom for you and I to be who we are.
The freedom to live life as we do.
The freedom to make mistakes and learn from them.
The freedom to express our own truth as we see it.


The trust that there is a constant flow of love,
no matter what.
The trust that, in spite of life’s problems,
we believe in and support each other’s right
to live as we choose.
The trust that in adversity,
there is healing and learning and gifts of love.
The trust that under conflict and emotional expression,
there is love

I love you and I trust you.
I free you to be all you are.

Betty Lue 1978

Calls for Help

Addictions, violence, chaos, corruption, all are calls for help.
Alcohol, pornography, gambling, sex with strangers, obsessing with video games, hoarding, etc.
Prescription drugs, sleep disorders, chronic illnesses, mental health issues, abuse, obesity, etc.

What do addictions call for?
What is the problem?
Why are people sick?
What happened to normal family relationships?
Where are Dad and Mom?
What happened to civil conversations and sharing.
What is causing so much pain?
What are the unmet needs?

It seems humanity may have gotten stuck in a comfort zone and feels trapped. 

There are people taking on traditional roles which no longer fit.
There are men trying to be what is expected and getting depressed and anxious.
There are women trying to be mothers with a need to do something out of the home.
There are families trying to look functional with lots of behind the scenes unhappiness and discord.
There are people both seeking death and afraid to let go.
There are adolescents trying not to grow up and shutting our the crazy world with drugs,
There are men and women abandoning their roles in families that seem to be working.
There are people struggling to pay the mortgage and still shopping for clothes and Starbucks.
There are politicians making crazy and immature decisions and still wanting to lead our nation.
There are temptations to be irresponsible with drugs and guns offered even in grade school.
There is images of immoral and violent behavior commonplace on TV, movies and internet.7
There is dress, languaging and behavior among adolescents and adults once only for the lowest in society.
There is a confused, valueless culture appearing where we seem to have lost common sense or courtesy.

What is going on?  UGH!
Lack of basic rules of etiquette.
Few role models for appropriate, behavior and dress and choices.
No training in decision-making skills.
Focus on following your feelings and not what you know to be Good.
Instant or short term gratification is justifies.
Limitless and ever-increasing temptations available.
No values clarification opportunities at school, church or home.
Threats and punishment applied rather than natural consequences.
No honored elders or exemplary consultants for help in sorting out one’s life choices.
Faced with total freedom before demonstrating responsibility.
Lack of accountability for one’s mistakes.
Cultural mores in chaos.
Lack of self Love and self respect.
Inconsistent expectations in institutions and on the street.

And what can we do?

  • Clean up our own act.
  • Live life daily applying the highest principles we know.
  • Give generously of our time and encouragement to those around us, especially children.
  • Teach every to be accountable through follow-up and appropriate natural consequences.
  • Be authentic in your interactions.
  • Be assertively honest, rather than “nice” or passive, judgmental or aggressive.
  • Learn to apologize for any mistakes, or disrespect in your behavior or language.
  • Be a safe place where others can discuss and share without pushing your opinions.
  • Stop availing yourself or your family to the tempations that are not healthy.
  • Learn to say “NO” without losing anyone’s respect or love.
  • Bring up values or principle centered discussions so others can voice their preferences.
  • Seek out those who walk their talk and live their Truth.
  • Give to those who feed you only the Highest Good and forget the rest.

Share with me your ideas.
How can we stop the pain?
How does humanity become sane and humane?
How do each one of us become the change we want to see more effectively?

Awakening humanity with me words, thoughts and actions,
Betty Lue

You are responsible for your own happiness and inner peace.

Where we are upset (angry, hurt, afraid, judgmental), our past wounds (unhealed stuff) has been triggered.   This shows us where we have work to do.

The usual relationship habit is to try to “fix” the other person, to get them to change or stop saying or doing what has upset us. This makes the other feel “wrong” and guilty and hurt and angry and inadequate. This only exaggerates the problem.
It is ineffective over the long term.

The real work is to heal our own woundedness, to clear our own buttons and heal our history and forgive allowing anything or anyone to hurt us.  When we have done our work, we can be truly effective, helpful and teach by example.

This is a big job.
It cannot be done overnight, but takes constant practice.
We must first take good care of ourselves mentally, physically, and spiritually.
Being conscious and taking impeccable care of ourselves is essential to quality relationships.

Begin now with learning to love, respect, trust and appreciate yourself.
The more you love, trust, respect and appreciate yourself, the more others will love, trust, respect and appreciate you.
The more you love, respect, trust and appreciate yourself, the more others will do the same for themselves and  for others.

You are the living example, the teacher, with everything you think, say and do.

Summer Equinox

The time of the greatest light is when we see all we need to clean and clear and forgive.
It is OK to be picky with your own cleanup process.
It is helpful to be delighted to DO THE WORK!
It is encouraging to know you are making a difference.

Those who know, do not judge.
Those who know, simply live what they know.
What do you know?
When there is work to be done, are you willing to do it?

Sometimes we look for external cause and then try to “fix” it or change “them”.
Most of the time I look for what I can do to make the change I want to see.
When I see a place of darkness, hiding, withhold, or non confront, I choose greater awareness.
When I look for what will work, I usually consult with those who participate in my world.

How are you at cleaning up your messes?
What do you do when you make a mistake?
How do you handle relationship scritches?
What have you learned from correcting mental errors?

Usually there is a case of mistaken identity, when we notice error.
When we condemn our selves or another for mistakes and blunders, we are mistaken.
The Essence of the Being continues to be perfect, whole, loving, but the errant personality has had its way.
When the negative emotions take over, we are mistaken by our judgmental perceptions.

To identify the Being with their mistakes is our error.
To identify ourselves by our emotions, judgments and past ignorance is a faulty.
To remember mistakes of others and ourselves is to clutter our mental space and clog the flow of Love.
To believe in other’s unloving behavior as their Truth gets them stuck in believing it too.

What can we do to clear the way to greater Light and Love?
Heal the past by erasing it.
Clear your judgments by denying their power.  “My judgments mean nothing.”
Live from your authentic Self, always affirming Love, Trust and Respect for yourself.

In times of Light, we are to remember to increase the Light.
In times of darkness, we are to turn up the light.
In times of remembering, we are to celebrate our awareness.
In times of forgetfulness, we are to clear the dust from our past.

I am happy to be of service.
I am glad to be given the opportunity to think and speak and act in Truth.
I am supported in giving the best I know.
I am loved by being the One who never quits on Love.

Do No Harm

Hurt no one with your thoughts, especially not yourself.
Hurt no one with your words, including you.
Hurt no one with your actions, this includes all life.
When you do no harm, you will not fear being harmed.

When we do harm, we fear being harmed.

When we hurt others with thoughts or words, we fear the same.
When we consciously or unconsciously harm the environment, we fear being harmed.
Yes, even insects, trash, graffiti, poor drivers, unconscious people, children exploring may be hurt.

Every thought, word and deed is teaching others directly and indirectly.
When we forgive ourselves and others, we are clearing the unconscious hurtfulness of all.
When we remember to extend gratitude and peace to all life, we help to heal.
When we live consciously, giving only what we want to receive, we restore the balance of nature.

Yes, it is true, that every act of love heals us all.
And the same is true, that every act of violence, violates all.
Every unkind word, and vengeful thought and cruel action, hurts us all.
We each make a huge difference for healing the wrongs and strengthening the Good.

·     Become conscious
·     Forgive all mistakes instantly.
·     Be the healing Presence.
·     Extend peace to the discomforted.
·     Love the Ones who have forgotten.
·     Heal those who are hurting themselves.
·     Express gratitude freely and increase All Good.
·     Look for the right ways to live and love and give.
·     Be the One who remembers to live Consciously and with Joy.

Each one of us can stop the insanity in our own lives.
We can slow down and give what is ours to share.
We can offer what we have so there is no lack.
We can enjoy the fruits of our labor and still give generously.

We are the ones here to change the world.
We are the ones here to awaken our human family.
We are the ones with enough good sense to share what we have.
We are the ones who know we can forgive and choose again for Goodness Sake.

I AM loving you, because loving you loves me.
I AM trusting you, because trusting you trusts me.
I AM freeing you, because freeing you sets me free to be.
I AM Being and sharing All That I AM, because this is our way home.

I AM, True B’Lue

Happy Father’s Day

Having Rests on Giving

Life is for Giving and You Are the Gift! 

Giving is Receiving.Are you receiving the gift of giving?
Do you give what you wish you had?
Are you giving what you want to share?

When we give from a needy place, we increase our experience of needing to get.
When we give from a fulfilled place, we fully appreciate the joy of giving, needing nothing in return.
When we give expecting the other to express gratitude, we are needing them to approve of our giving.
When we give because we have been asked, we can give remembering we are giving to ourselves.

Whatever anyone asks, give it…unless it does harm to him or to you.” ACIM

When we give because we believe they need, are we not teaching them they are needy?
When we give because we celebrate their Wholeness, are we not teaching them they are whole?

When we give because we feel sorry for their plight, are we not confirming their lack and limitation?

When someone asks something from us, can we not give to them as though they are ourselves?
When we give to someone who is asking, can we simply share with a brother in the family of man?
When we give to another who has made a request, do we honestly confirm it will do no harm?
When someone asks, is it not better to listen within for what will be best rather than support lack?

Charity is valuable and healing, when given with love and respect.
Contributions serve well, when given with full appreciation and open-mindedness.
Handouts feel respectful, when we have honored and acknowledged the Good in each recipient.
Let us give consciously with an affirmation that all be used wisely and well for the Highest Good.

When someone asks time, money, energy and resources, I listen to what I am teaching.
Do I teach them to do for themselves or do I do it for them?
Do I clarify exactly what is really needed or do I quickly give what is asked so I don’t feel guilty?
Do I love myself and the other with the same love and respect, or do I apease their neediness?

There is no reason to withhold Love.
Withholding my Love, shuts down my thoughts, feelings, creativity, health and prosperity.
When I am withholding Love, I hurt myself.
When I extend my Love and Peace, I am healing us all.

Giving to those who give to us expands the giving for all.
Sharing freely what we have benefits everyone on the planet.
Unconditionally giving includes sharing wisdom, listening, affection, companionship and helpfulness.
Unconditional Love comes from those who clear all blocks to Love through continuous forgiveness.

Let us Love our fathers and Our Father.
Right or wrong, good or bad, it matters not.
Let us remember that to Love heals everyone.
When they are healed with our Love and forgiveness, we are healed with them.
And this is Good. This is God.

Loving everyOne, when we wholly love even One,
Betty Lue

What Do You See?

What do you see when you look at our picture?
More importantly, what do you imagine or project?
What you see is what you believe.
What you believe is what you make true for you.

Some people imagine the worst so they can feel better than.
Some people make up stories from their own experience so they can feel the same.
Some people make ups fantasies and wishful thinking, so they can believe.
Some people make up stories of admiration, so they learn and heal.

To learn what is true, you need to ask, listen and observe.
To reveal what is possible, you need to be open, understanding and willing.
To receive value from anyone, you need to respect and trust what is shared.
To benefit from your admiration and appreciation, you need to remember:
What you can see in another is also in you! (or you would not be able to see it.)

When we assume we know, we are usually mistaken.
When we make up what we want to be, we are often wrong.
When we fear the worst, we deceive ourselves.
When we expect the best, we may help it be or be disappointed.

I know the Love and Goodness are in YOU.
I know this because I always know the Love and Goodness in me.
I remember you are healing, because my life is revealing what seeks to be healed.
I trust you want to love and be loved, because I know the Love in You.

Love created you as Love for the holy purpose of Loving.

When you have forgotten this, you have forsaken your true Self.
You are here to heal your forgetfulness and remember the Love in You.
When you forgive yourself for forgetting to Love, you will be the Love You Are.

The Light you see in me is also in you.
The Love you feel shining through us is waiting for you to shine your light, too!.
The willingness to shine is the remembering to shine on everyone all the time.
There is no reason to withhold your Love or forsake the Love You are.

The Light you feel I share with you is also shining on me.
The Gratitude and Joy I feel comes from loving the life I have created for me to live.
The lessons I learn, the purpose I serve, the enjoyment I have all comes from me.
I have chosen to fully appreciate this life and its healing, adventure and creativity.

Our home is a reflection of how we feel about ourselves.
Our relationships are a reflection of how willing we are to Love.
Our finances are a reflection of how well we respect and utilize what we have.
Our work is a reflection of what we value and how we use our time and energy.
Our play and recreation is a reflection of how much joy we want to have.
Our beliefs are a reflection of what we want to have in our lives.

Healing is revealing the Light and Love within!
Loving you and me and all as one,
Betty Lue

What Is Yours to Heal?

What if someone’s behavior upset you?
What if you get hurt by another’s words?
What if you withhold your love?
What if you can’t get over a past mistake?

Yes, it is all yours to heal.
Every upset, large or small, is yours to be responsible for.

Whenever we feet angry, scared, hurt, resentful, guilty, it is ours to heal within.
All upsets are past similars, unresolved historical patterns, stuff left unforgiven.

This takes courage, willingness, patience and trust to reveal what needs healing.
You know you have healed your wounds, when you are not hurt, offended or angry.
You know you have removed your sensitive buttons, when you are peaceful and loving.
You know you have handled your “stuff”, when you simply continue loving.

Yes, people make mistakes.
People have their own wounds to heal.
People have their own upsets to clear.
However, when we take their stuff personally, it means it triggered ours.

Sometimes we have righteous beliefs about what is right and wrong.
Sometimes we claim they intended to hurt or offend us.
Sometimes we make excuses for our upset over continued behaviors.
Sometimes we are so focuses on them, we ignore what is ours.

If you are depressed, you need to heal.
If you are angry, you need to heal.
If you are hurt, you need to heal.
If you are afraid, you need to heal.

We keep playing victim, blaming the external persecutor and trying to “fix” them.
We keep seeking external saviors, therapists, judges and doctors to make it stop hurting.
We keep looking outside ourselves for the healing, instead of looking inside to cure it all.
To heal is to reveal what is really the inner cause…the thought, the memory, the confusion, the shame.

When we are happy and living our truth, others behavior belongs to them.
When we are peaceful and on purpose, we see others errors as their business.
When we are loving and kind to ourselves, we can be loving and kind to those calling for love.
When we are able to respond to our own needs quickly and easily, we take nothing personally.

When we are healed, we are not healed alone.
The only one I can change is me.
When I heal me, I set my love, creativity and forgiveness free.
When I love, respect and trust myself, I can love, trust and respect others and they learn from me.

Difficult to learn, but try it out and you will see.
The only one I can heal is me.

Loving you and loving me,
Betty Lue

Healing Relationships

You are responsible for your own happiness and inner peace.

Where we are upset (angry, hurt, afraid, judgmental), our past wounds (unhealed stuff) has been triggered.
This shows us where we have work to do.

The usual relationship habit is to try to “fix” the other person, to get them to change or stop saying or doing what has upset us. This makes the other feel “wrong” and guilty and hurt and angry and inadequate.
This only exaggerates the problem.
It is ineffective over the long term.

The real work is to heal our own woundedness, to clear our own buttons and heal our history and forgive allowing anything or anyone to hurt us.  
When we have done our work, we can be truly effective, helpful and teach by example.

This is a big job.
It cannot be done overnight, but takes constant practice.
We must first take good care of ourselves mentally, physically, and spiritually.
Being conscious and taking impeccable care of ourselves is essential to quality relationships.

Begin now with learning to love, respect, trust and appreciate yourself.
The more you love, trust, respect and appreciate yourself, the more others will love, trust, respect and appreciate you.
The more you love, respect, trust and appreciate yourself, the more others will do the same for themselves and  for others.

You are the living example, the teacher, with everything you think, say and do.

What is Right for You?

Would you rather be right or be happy?
Would you rather trust in what you know or what you feel?
Would you rather believe in others or in yourself?
Would you rather do what your want or with what works?

Interesting questions which only you can answer.
The question is really “In what do you trust?”

Our paper money says, “In God we trust.”
How do you demonstrate what you really believe?

To trust in the Good, the Love, the positive outcome, some see as “Pollyanna”.

To believe in yourself, some feel is arrogance or faulty thinking.
To seek for answers and security in another, some see as risky.
It is time for each of us to really decide where we place our trust.

I know when I know what is right and true for you.
I know when I care and desire only the best for all.
I know when I listen to my heart that my intention is Love.
I know when I trust in my inner voice that I feel Good.

What is right for you?
Where do you go for answers?
How do you tell what is right?
When do you know you are on the right track?

Pay attention to the inner and outer outcome.
Do you feel more peaceful and happy?
Do you feel complete with what you have said and done?
Are you comfortable with your best efforts and choices?

When I have lingering questions, doubt and worries, I know I am not complete.
When I am waiting for another to agree, I know I am not trusting in myself.
When I need confirmation that I have done the right thing, I realize that I am not trusting.
When I need others support to make my choices, I know I need to practice trusting my Self.

Remember the little EGO (=edging god out) is our learned and fear-based personality.
Our ego is the part of us that needs to be right and prove and defend its rightness at all costs.
It often leads us to problems, conflicts and even more fears and worries.
Our ego helps us survive, but neglects how we can thrive and be truly happy and at peace.

Our Higher Spiritual Self is  loving, trusting, forgiving and natural.
It leads us to perfect trust and freedom and demonstrates its power through miracles of Love.
It opens the door to so much more than we can imagine with ease and joy and profound inner peace.
Our inner Spirit, some call our God Self, is filled with delight and gratitude and compassion for all.

Listen to what works for you.
Follow what you trust and believe.
Enjoy a fun, safe and easy life only if you wish.
Know always you are coming Home to the True and Essential YOU!

Where Do You Look?

Are you looking up or looking down?
Do you look inside or outside?
Are you looking at the light or into darkness?
Are you attracted to reflections or shadows?

Some study health and some focus on illness?
Some serve neediness and some serve prosperity?
Some help and some judge?
Some give to give and some give to get?

When we look for approval from those who are critical, we may be disappointed.
When we seek for love from those who do not love themselves, we may be left loveless.
When we try to get advice from those who don’t practice their own advice, we may be led to failing.
When we live with expectations that others know what we don’t know, we may be fooled.

We are all choosing to get the answers we seek.
We can look for what we fear the most and be right.
We can look for what inspires us and be satisfied and inspired.
We may look for problems and never find solutions.

What we seek we find.
What we plant in our mental garden will grow what we have planted.
What we feel comes from the thoughts we think, unconsciously and consciously.
What we experience, we have asked to experience…to heal, to understand, to change, to explore, to learn, etc.

Where you look determines where you go.
When you look at how hard it will be, it will be difficult.
When you look backward, into the past, you will get stuck in the past.
When you look forward at how good it can be, you will move forward into the Good you seek.

Pay attention to how you sit and stand….up or down.
Notice where you look when contemplating to see where you store ideas, memories, information, etc.
Watch your thoughts to see if you are projecting good thoughts or fearful ones.
Be aware of how you use your power, your words and thoughts and imagination.

We are all needing to exercise our mind as well as our bodies.
We are all needing to become a personal trainer for our minds.
We are all needing to be strong and healthy in our thinking.
We all are needing to coach and train our minds to serve our goals.

Let’s begin now with these affirmations. (Written and spoken over and over.)
I am willing to use my mind and my thoughts for good and positive ideas.
I forgive, delete and undo all thoughts that are not wholly true and loving.

(Change the words to fit your mental needs and desired direction.)

Loving us all as One,  

Betty Lue
Those Who Know

To “know” is to “love”. For when we fully know, we have an experience of acceptance, understanding, trust and love. 

In working with this list of levels of consciousness, we can easily substitute “love” for “know”. Perhaps, for some, this will simplify and clarify where you are in your own unfoldment process.

·     Those who don’t know and don’t know they don’t know.
·     Those who don’t know and don’t care.
·     Those who don’t know and don’t want to know.
·     Those who don’t know and wish they did.
·     Those who don’t know and seek to know.
·     Those who are coming to know.
·     Those who know and are afraid of what they know.
·     Those who know and are afraid they don’t.
·     Those who know and hold back what they know.
·     Those who know and share what they know in order to know.
·     Those who know and know they know quietly.
·     Those who are what they know.

or with substitution:

·     Those who don’t love and don’t know they don’t love.
·     Those who don’t love and don’t care.
·     Those who don’t love and don’t want to love.
·     Those who don’t love and wish they did.
·     Those who don’t love and seek to love.
·     Those who are coming to Love.
·     Those who Love and are afraid of Love.
·     Those who Love and are afraid they don’t.
·     Those who Love and hold back their Love.
·     Those who Love and share Love to realize their Love.
·     Those who Love and share Love quietly.
·     Those who are Love.

With Betty Lue and Robert, successful life partners, at home and in our work, for the last 26 years.
Last week Relationships Workshop IJoined Vision=Intention, Values, Goals and Priorities (available on request)  Register for the series and learn on line.

What will it take to have a good life?
What will it take to have harmonious relationships?
What will it take to be happy everyday?
What will it take to feel peaceful and prosperous?

If you already have the good you want, you are creating the Good Life! 

If you already have healthy harmonious relationships, you are creating harmony.
If you already have happiness daily, you know how to be happy.
If you already have inner peace and prosperity, you have created safety and security.

If you do not, this is the reminder for you to read and practice.
This is the loving reminder for you to pay attention, observe your thoughts and learn.
This is the one to really take to heart and experiment with what works for you.
You are the creator of your life experience, your relationships, your happiness and inner peace.

Listen to the words you use.
Why can’t I have a fun, safe and easy life?
It’s so hard to make money and have the security I want.
I just can’t make my friendships last>
My life seems so difficult and chaotic all the time.
Things never seem to work for me.
All my relationships have so much fighting and conflict.
People don’t tell the truth and keep their word.
I’m never going to be happy.

Listen to how you talk to yourself inside.Every unkind thought must be forgiven and undone.
Every critical thought about yourself must be changes to an affirming one.
Every negative and doubting belief must be rewritten.

I am loveable and capable.
I deserve to feel happy and peaceful.
I can have the life I want right now.
I am good and I deserve to have only Good in my life.
My life works easily for me.
I receive all the Good I give to others.
I am peaceful and prosperous.
I am grateful I am safe and secure.

Listen to your stories you tell to see how you have mis-created what you do not want.
Stop telling others about your problems and worries.  Together you increase them.
Start affirming and declaring your life is steadily improving in every way.
Gather support for your peace and prosperity, your safety and security, your harmony and happiness.

Some aids to remembering:

·     Read  and watch inspirational books and media.
·     Listen to positive and powerful stories of faith.
·     Associate with people who are living the life you admire.
·     Believe in your own Goodness and Love, using affirmations.
·     Consciously and consistently stop all negative thinking, talking and behavior.

Remember we create our own life experience with thoughts, words and deeds.
Choose only the best and forgive and forget the rest!

Wanting always and only the best for all of us.

How To Love Yourself
Criticism never changes a thing. Refuse to criticize yourself. Accept yourself exactly as you are. Everybody changes. When you criticize yourself, your changes are negative. When you approve of yourself, your changes are positive.

Stop terrorizing yourself with your thoughts. It’s a dreadful way to live. Find a mental image that gives you pleasure (mine is yellow roses), and immediately switch your scary thought to a pleasure thought.

Be gentle with yourself. Be kind to yourself. Be patient with yourself as you learn the new ways of thinking. Treat yourself as you would someone you really loved.
Criticism breaks down the inner spirit. Praise builds it up. Praise yourself as much as you can. Tell yourself how well you are doing with every little thing.
Self hatred is only hating your own thoughts. Don’t hate yourself for having the thoughts. Gently change your thoughts.
Find ways to support yourself. Reach out to friends and allow them to help you. It is being strong to ask for help when you need it.
Acknowledge that you created them to fulfill a need. Now you are finding new, positive ways to fulfill those needs. So, lovingly release the old negative patterns.
Learn about nutrition. What kind of fuel does your body need to have optimum energy and vitality? Learn about exercise. What kind of exercise can you enjoy? Cherish and revere the temple you live in.
Look into your eyes often. Express this growing sense of love you have for yourself. Forgive yourself looking into the mirror. Talk to your parents looking into the mirror. Forgive them too. At least once a day say: “I love you, I really love you!”
Don’t wait until you get well, or lose the weight, or get the new job, or the new relationship. Begin now, and do the best you can.

Are You Mistaken?

Apologies for the days when computers were offline up at our Reunion Lake House/Hermitage retreat.

When you make a mistake, forgive your self.
When you feel bad, change your thoughts.
When you feel confused and conflicted, quiet your mind.
When you feel cautious and afraid, think peaceful and loving thoughts.

Too often we seem to spend time, money and energy on making sense out of nonsense.
Too many times we stop and try to justify our mistaken perceptions and projections.
Too much energy is spent on explaining and understanding what is crazy and wrong.
Too many folks are teaching us to defend our thoughts, beliefs, words and behaviors at all cost.

When you think, speak or act in an unkind way, stop and choose again.

When you believe something negative, scary and just plain foolish, stop and choose again.
When you agree with folks who are delivering unloving angry messages, stop and think again.
When you live in a world of complex, diverse and voluminous thoughts, choose carefully your own.

When we defend our thoughts and feelings without consciousness, we will be mis-guided.

When we succumb to the ignorance of the world’s prejudices and hatred, we will feel afraid.
When we are distracted and detoured by other’s ideas, beliefs and stories, we will feel confused.
When we acting in ugly, angry and crazy ways, we need to change our minds.

Life on planet earth offers us the choice to sleep unaware drowning in foolish misinformation.
Or we can step outside the box of conformity and complacency and think for ourselves.
With the information age of technology and media, we can be easily brain-washed.
Or we can choose to listen within to our own voice and choose our own creative solutions.

It may seem easier to believe what others say and behave as others behave, but it leads nowhere.

It might seem comfortable to live defending again being wrong and never being happy.
But in the end, happiness is what we all seek ….to live in peace and feel safe in being Love.
So now is the opportunity to step up, in faith and good conscience, to live the Good life you desire.

Let’s admit when we don’t know.
Let’s seek a better way.
Let’s ask for help from those who live the higher Truth they know.
Let’s give our lives to think Good, speak Good, act Good and give Good.

We all know principles of a Good and happy Life.

1)   Always give your best.
2)   Speak well of others or don’t speak at all.
3)   Take good care of yourself, your family, your home and your work.
4)   Be respectful and responsible in all your relationships.

Don’t let yourself slip into the confusion and delusion of others’ unhappy and unhealthy ways.
Choose today for what is highest and best for you in everyway everyday.

Loving us all as we forgive our mistakes and choose again.

Think Good

When you think Good, you feel Good.
When you think Good, you act Good.
When you think Good, you create Good.
When you think Good, you remember Good.

The mind seems to think its own thoughts.
The mind seems to have its own way.
The mind seems to follow external stimuli.
The mind seems to lead us.

We can exercise our mind.
We can teach our mind.
We can use our mind.
We can guide our mind.

When we choose thoughts that benefit, we feel benefitted.
When we choose thoughts that forgive and heal, we feel forgiving and healed.
When we choose thoughts that are creative and beautiful, we feel creative and beautiful.
When we choose thoughts that are loving, we feel blessed and bathed in Love.

Our mind is meant to be a tool, used for holy purposes.
Our mind is meant to be our servant, serving  Good for all.
Our mind is meant to be a helper, allowing us to create what we want.
Our mind is meant to be resource, giving us information when needed.

We can train our minds to be quiet.
We can teach our minds to be helpful.
We can develop our minds to be creative.
We can guide our minds to be inspiring.

When we want an abundant life, we can choose abundant thinking.
When we want a healthy and energized life, we can choose healing and revitalizing thoughts.
When we want new ideas and inspiration, we can invite our mind to seek what inspires us.
When we want to clear the old archived  negative material, we can command our mind to delete.

Forgiveness is dumping the trash in our minds.
Meditation is quieting the mind.
Reflection is focusing the mind.
Brain-storming is using the mind to find alternate solutions.

When we allow the mind to be in charge of our thoughts, feelings and behaviors, it may lead us astray.
When we accept what the mind thinks randomly as our truth, we may be deceived.
When we let the mind teach us what to believe and how to behave, we may feel confused.
When we believe what the mind has stored from other’s teachings, we relinquish our power.

Give your mind to Good and God.
Give your mind to the highest possibilities.
Give your mind to positive and practical thinking.
Give your mind to healing and abundance, peace and prosperity.

Use this tool….your mind as a creator of Good.
Use your mind as a healing Power.
Use your mind as an infinite Source and resource to benefit all life.
Use your mind as the gift it was created to be…..creating Love and Peace and Joy.

Blessings to us all,
Betty Lue

The 12 Principles of Attitudinal Healing
1.       The essence of our being is love.
2.       Health is inner peace, healing is letting go of fear.
3.       Giving and receiving are the same.
4.       We can let go of the past and of the future.
5.       Now is the only time there is, and each instant is for giving.
6.       We can learn to love ourselves and others by forgiving rather than by judging.
7.       We can become love finders rather than fault finders.
8.       We can choose and direct ourselves to be peaceful inside, regardless of what is happening outside.
9.       We are students and teachers to each other.
10.    We can focus on the whole of life, rather than the fragments.
11.    Since love is eternal, change need not be viewed as fearful.
12.    We can always perceive others as either extending love or giving a call for help.

Attitudinal Healing
 affirms that we are responsible for our thoughts and whatever feelings we experience.
Attitudinal Healing encourages us to re-examine our relationships, bringing them into the present by releasing past judgments and grievances.
Attitudinal Healing reminds us that perception is a mirror of what is in our mind.
