In Service

How do we serve?
Are we serving with Love or with fear?
Do we serve to handle our own fears or because we are guided to be truly helpful?
Do we serve because it is our joy or because we feel obligated to serve.
Do we serve in ways that are uplifting and loving reminders or feeling sorry and worried for someone?

Service “serves us.”
The intention with which we love and give and serve is receive by the one serving.
All that we give is given to ourselves.
“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” reminds us to serve with the best we know.

What we give we receive. 
Our intention is important and belies what will be received by the giver.
When we serve, it is imperative that we pay attention to our thoughts and the beliefs we hold.
Thoughts held in mind create after their kind.

In practice, when asked for help, ask in yourself, “How can I serve the highest and best for this one?”
Often the individual does not know what is in their own best interest, so we need to listen with them.
We may be asked for something that we feel we cannot do, and we need to listen to what is best.
We may let our sorrow, fear, duty interfere with what we hear is our responsibility.

Sometimes people sacrifice to be helpful and find themselves guilty or resentful.
When we can give from our fullness, we give with joy and gratitude and blessing for all.
When we are blessed by our service, we have given from Love.
When we are fulfilled in our loving service, we know we are giving from a place that is inspired.

Our response-ability is indeed our ability to respond with Love.  
Response coming from Love, freedom and trust is healing and inspiring and filled with grace.
Reacting from fear, concern and doubt, is unhelpful and discouraging and filled with worry.
When we are full of love, faith, and inspiration, we respond with more love and faith and gratitude.

Service serves all of us.
Service is a blessing of goodness and kindness for everyone.
Helping and Fixing often comes from worry and doubt, trying to do something good.
When we truly serve, we are setting others free, trusting everyone is blessed with trust and freedom.

When you do not know what to do, be still and listen within.
Am I willing? 
Am I able? 
Do I know what is mine to do?

Give for the joy of giving.
Give with the Love of Sharing with your brother/sister and yourself.
Give as you are called to give from within.
Give as a gift from God to God.

Let go and let it be.
You need not check on the value of your service.
The value is received in Spirit as the intention with which it is given.
And so it is.
All Good.
Loving us all as one.
Betty Lue

“There is only One of us. 
In your eyes it’s me I see.  
There is only One of us.
You are my reflection.”

Helping, Fixing, Serving
--by Rachel Remen (May 29, 2000)

Service is not the same as helping. 
Helping is based on inequality, it's not a relationship between equals. When you help, you use your own strength to help someone with less strength. It's a one up, one down relationship, and people feel this inequality. When we help, we may inadvertently take away more than we give, diminishing the person's sense of self-worth and self-esteem.
Now, when I help I am very aware of my own strength, but we don't serve with our strength, we serve with ourselves. We draw from all our experiences: our wounds serve, our limitations serve, even our darkness serves. The wholeness in us serves the wholeness in the other, and the wholeness in life. Helping incurs debt: when you help someone, they owe you. But service is mutual. When I help I have a feeling of satisfaction, but when I serve I have a feeling of gratitude.
Serving is also different from fixing. We fix broken pipes, we don't fix people. When I set about fixing another person, it's because I see them as broken. Fixing is a form of judgment that separates us from one another; it creates a distance.

So, fundamentally, helping, fixing and serving are ways of seeing life. When you help, you see life as weak; when you fix, you see life as broken; and when you serve, you see life as whole.
When we serve in this way, we understand that this person's suffering is also my suffering, that their joy is also my joy and then the impulse to serve arises naturally - our natural wisdom and compassion presents itself quite simply. A server knows that they're being used and has the willingness to be used in the service of something greater. 
We may help or fix many things in our lives, but when we serve, we are always in the service of wholeness.

Details or Big Picture?

Where do we place our attention?
Are we so caught up in the details, that we are distracted from our intention.
Do we work so hard to please others, that we forget what brings us joy?
Are we lost in the complexity of life. so we neglect the beauty of its simplicity?

Let’s notice the beauty and order, the love within, what is given and created and of service.
The detailing comes after the underlying intention is fully appreciated.
When I do the work, I enjoy the ease and gratitude with which I am willing and able to complete.
The work is easy when the good intention is a constant reminder and never forsaken.

There are some who are focused on the details, the structure, rules, schedule and are judging.
There are some among us who are focused on the cause, intention, spontaneous responses.
There are some who look at the overall outcome and move with ease and joy to completion.
There are some who are never quite satisfied with the result and need to correct and improve.

The inner and outer processing of information, perceptions, projects and relationships is individual.
Trust in the perfection of all things comes easily for some and is more difficult for others.
The focus of each individual is a composite of past history, experience, beliefs and comparison.
The speed at which we process and work depends on intention, focus, energy and what we can do.

Where we judge, compare, and try to please others, there is more effort and fatigue.
Where we trust, allow and are simply inspired to do, there is ease, freedom and flow.
When we are resistant, fearful or critical or ourselves of others, natural joy is rare.
When we are willing, loving and forgiving of ourselves and others, joy is a constant.

Look around your world.
What do you see?
If you love it all, be grateful and enjoy it.
If you don’t love it, simply forgive it all with an eraser filled with love and CHOOSE AGAIN!

People fear being responsible for the world they see, because they don’t want to feel guilty.
People judge others, blame, demand, and feel victimized, because they don’t want to be responsible.
However, they miss the value of being able to respond with ease and gratitude and conscious choice.
Step in to life. When you see what you don’t want to be, forgive and ask “What can I do?”

When you see something that (you believe) needs to be done, it is yours to do.
I don’t judge anything that I am not willing to do or undo.
If it is none of my business, it is none of my business.
If I can do something about making a difference, I do it now.

The difference I make is often simply forgiving my judgment! (Judging gets things stuck!)
I sometimes simply choose to see it differently, seeing the benefit, the gift.
Sometimes I love “the Hell our of it”, sending so much appreciation that the yucky stuff dissolves.
And often I simply ask, within, “How can I be of help and service?”

When all is said and done, this is my world and yours is your world.
We are each creating our own experience of our reality.
Only we can change what we see and how we receive what we perceive.
I prefer to be happy, so I change my mind, my perceptions and my responses.

Loving us all in our individuality to have what we want and value,
Blessed be us all as we learn to value what is valuable.
Betty Lue

Healing Our Projections => Seeing Only Wholeness
1. We perceive what we believe.
2. We believe what we think we are.
3. If I believe I am my past, then I believe you are your past.
4.    Believing in my past is to see it and live it over and over again in all I see and do and am.
5.   Believing in your past is to remember it and lay blame with my judgments of you.
6. The more I feel guilty about my past, the more I place blame on you.
7.   All anger is but guilt projected onto others.
8. To forgive my past is to release it.
9.   To release is to see it no more.
10. As I release (forgive) my past, I release all others from my projected guilt and self-judgment. As I see myself whole, I see wholeness.
11. As I heal my guilt about past mistakes, I heal my fear of the future.
12. To be in the present is to heal (erase) the past.
13. As I live in the present and love myself as I am now, I like you in the present and see you as you are now.
14. In the presence of this present moment, there is only Love for ourselves, each other and all that is.

In The Right Place

I am always in the right place at the right time doing the right thing for the right reason.
What if you believed that to be true for you?
Would your relax and go with the flow, staying open and willing to respond with loving kindness/
Would you let go of fear and worry, doubt and resentment?

It is possible that when we are doubting ourselves we interfere (enter fear) with the highest outcome.
It may be that when we are totally trusting we tune in to what is the best for everyone.
It could be that without judgment, we slip into the Divine flow of all Good things.
I might appear that without fear we can see what really is All Good and All God.

Whatever you make up about how the physical and spiritual Universe works, it does work.
Just like in sailing or surfing, we need to catch the wind and catch the wave of the Divine.
To interfere or think with fear and worry, misdirects our right Course and go against the flow.
Even misperception and misdirection can be a blessing of learning and spiritual realization.

So what will it take for us to take a break from thinking too much and over-correcting our path?
What do you need to trust more, believe more, receive more and give gratitude for what is?
How can we let go of what we have been taught, “be careful, make sure, wait a minute”?
When will we learn to always know, “We are blessed, we are loved, because we are Divine.”?

Everything always works more exquisitely than I can plan.
When we let go and know that everything will work our right, we step out of the way of our Good.
When we release worry and fear, we can see more clearly and know more wisely and love more purely.
When we trust in the peace of God and listen to the loving guidance within, we trust in Good.

We may be seeing an external force guiding and directing our lives with clarity and purpose.
We may be feeling our inner faith guiding us individually to live purposefully with ease and grace.
We may be simply clearing feelings of unworthiness and fear of karma, and allowing love to enter in.
We may be opening the way for blessings and miracles and good stuff to be really received and enjoyed.

However we remember and receive the Goodness and blessings, it is all good for all.
When one is benefitted, everyone is blessed.
What is good for you is good for all.
For when you are happy and whole, everyone you encounter is benefitted and blessed by you.

These Loving Reminders are a gift to me and often to many of you.
When you read them, it is right for you.
When you don’t read them, it is right for you.
When we stop judging, demanding, expecting and resisting our Good, it is always there waiting for us.

Let it be and so it is.
The Blessings already are.
Love is Real and everything else made up.
Dreams do come true, when we wake up.

Loving us all as one,
Betty Lue

Give Your Best!

Are you giving your best in every relationship?
To receive the best from life, we must give our best to life!
When you give Truth you receive the Truth you share.
When you give to others what you wish for yourself, you receive it in the giving.

It is in the giving the best that you receive your own favor.
It is in the giving the best that you feel pleased with yourself.
It is in the giving the best that you feel worthy of the best.
It is in the giving the best that you feel happy and grateful.

We have been rewarded by others for doing our best, in school, home and work.
This has caused a belief that giving our best will result in others rewarding us.
Then we believe others should reward us and we seek the reward.
We learn to seek others’ approval and rewards for giving our best. 

We need to unlearn giving to get.
We need to remember giving for the sheer pleasure of giving.
We need to realize all giving is a gift to ourselves.
We need to recognize that our reward is in the giving.

It is in giving that we receive the joy of doing and giving our best.
When we contribute to good with what we think and say and do, we increase the Good in the world.
When we demonstrate the abundant joy and life energy that comes from freely giving, we open the flow.
The more we give without thought of loss or sacrifice, the more we trust and free ourselves to give.

Contribution is really paying tribute.
When we give from Source to Source, we are re Sourcefull.
When we recognize we are giving to the One, all of us, we receive everything we give.
When we receive all that is given with Love, we receive always and only unlimited Love.

Each one of us is a gift.  
The real gift is in the giving. 
And the gift to the giver is in receiving the true gifts we give.
When we appreciate all that is given  to All, we receive unlimited Abundance. 

To give our best is to receive the blessing of being willing and able to give and receive.
When there are conditions on the giving or the receiving, the experience is limited.
When there is withhold or judgments about what is given and received, there is limited appreciation.

Take time to give your best.
Pay attention to how it feels inside.
Free yourself to give fully to everyone.
Appreciate how fully you give gratitude and joy to yourself.

Loving us all for the Gifts we really are,
Betty Lue

Do It Anyway
People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centered.  
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.  
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies.  Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you.  
Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, someone could destroy it all overnight.  
Build anyway.  

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous.  
Be happy anyway.  

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow.  
Do good anyway.  

Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough.  
Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.  

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God.  
It was never between you and them anyway.

Are You as Good as You Think You Are?

Are you a good friend?
Are you a good partner?
Are you a good parent?
Are you a good to all others?

Are you as good as you want to believe you are?
Would you like to take an inventory of your thoughts, words and actions?
Are you open to learning how to be better in all your relationships?
Would you like to consider some better ways to love, to serve, to help, to listen, to encourage?

Do you keep confidences with your children, friends and partners?
Do you encourage and not criticize those with whom you associate?
Do you offer advice and opinions without being asked?
Do you know what is best for others, rather than supporting them in finding what is best?
Do you think you know for others, but neglect to know and do for yourself?
Do you make up that you can are better than they are?
Do you compare yourself and your choices with others?

Are you good to yourself?
Do you remember to appreciate yourself and your accomplishments?
Do you treat yourself with respect and kindness?
Do you enjoy your own company?
Do you believe in yourself and your abilities?
Do you give yourself what the lifestyle that is healthy and supportive?
Do you surround yourself with good people whom you admire and enjoy?
Do you eat, drink, watch and indulge in activities that are good for you?
Do you spend the money you have wisely for things that are beneficial?
Do you ask for help and support when you really have need?
Do you take time to play and rest, to work and create a better life?
Do you enjoy the work you do and the people with whom you associate?
Do you trust yourself and your choices?
Do you forgive your mistakes and stop punishing yourself with guilt or self punishment?

When we know how to be good to ourselves, we will easily be good to others.
When we trust, respect and love ourselves, we can easily love, trust and respect others.
When we encourage, support and appreciate ourselves, we naturally give our best to others.
There is no one from whom our self evaluation is more important than from ourselves.

Pretending we are think we are good, feels and sounds arrogant, and is unnecessary.
Clear the fear and judgments and you will know you are really good with nothing to prove.
Trusting we always have good intentions makes all the difference, when we are honest with ourselves.
Take the time today, to forgive all thoughts, feelings and beliefs of not being good enough.
I, (name), am good.  
I was created for doing good and being good and having good.
I trust the goodness in me and believe in the Goodness in others.
Affirmations are best spoken and written 20 times daily for at least 14 days 
(or until our mind chatter agrees and there is no internal resistance.

Goodness created you as Good for the holy purpose of doing Good and having Good and being Good.
 Do not forget this.
You will see the world as needing forgiveness to allow their intrinsic Good to shine through all they do.
Loving the Good in You, in all you think and say and do.

Who Is Loving You?

Are you loving you?  
This is your primary job on this earth.

When you are loving yourself, you will know how to love others.
When you are loving you, you will know others cannot love well because they do not love themselves.
When you are loving you, you may teach others by example to love themselves and love you.
When you are loving you, you are not needy, jealous, hurt or angered.

When you love yourself consistently, you will love others consistently.
When you forget yourself, you will forget others and they will forget you.
When you deny yourself, you may deny others and they may neglect or deny you.
When you criticize yourself, you may criticize others and they may criticize you.

You see, what you give to yourself, you teach others to also give to you and to themselves.
It is essential for the healing of all that we begin with self love, loving the one we are unconditionally.
It is imperative that we begin within, because no one else knows us as we know ourselves.
It is required that we heal, dissolve and forgive all blocks to loving our whole and holy selves.

When we experience perfect eternal love for ourselves that we know God.
When we see ourselves with compassion, understanding and great appreciation, we know we are Good. When we forgive all our judgments, mis-creations, fears and past history, we begin to see the Divinity.
When we love enough, we are unlimited and powerful and peaceful and creative and truly happy.

When we wait for another to love us unconditionally, we are waiting for one who is loving themselves totally.
These beings are rare. 
Most human beings have learned to judge themselves and punish themselves by withholding love.
Most partners, lovers, parents, friends, siblings cannot give us what we really want until they have it to give.

What would it take for you to be the one, to begin this new consciousness of total unconditional Love?
What keeps you from giving yourself all the happiness, peace, security and appreciation you lack?
Why deny yourself Love and perfect happiness and wait for someone else to give it to you?
Why not choose today to begin a new way to play the game of Life, love yourself and end all strife!

Can you see how happy, helpful and grateful you will be when you love yourself perfectly?
NO matter what others do, love the one you are and see the Best in you.
You can lead the way in your family, in your home and business too to ring the love outside of you.
It doesn’t matter what others do or say, be happy, be helpful, be loving and enjoy being YOU!  

PS. Most people have bad days, or just want to turn down their light, 
Tell yourself it is quite alright.
Take some time off and get away.
Fill your tank with love in whatever way works.

Loving us all as we learn to love ourselves really well.

Purpose and Meaning

What are you here for?
What do you want to do?
Are you living a meaningless life?
Do you desire something more?

Are you happy everyday?
Do you go to bed feeling blessing?
Are you willing to value what you do?
Do you appreciate what you have?

When we are miserable with our lives, we seek and find more misery.
When we are living with regret and fear, we attract more to fear and regret.
When we are allowing the problems to get us down, we live in a world of problems.
When we are consumed with others’ needs and issues, we drown in the enormity of needs.

First save yourself.
A drowning or dying person have no help for others.
Bring yourself to a place of fullness.
An empty vessel has no resources from which to give.
Dare to value what you do.
When we know our own worth, we are confident in our giving.
Take time to listen within.
When we can trust our own heart, we can serve wholeheartedly.
Be patient with the healing changes.
Most resistance can be overcome with quiet patience and trust.
Look for what works.
Easily and quickly let go of what no longer serves with your blessing.
Support those who are doing The Work.
What you perceive and receive from others, you strengthen in yourself.
Give your life to Love.
Do what you love and Love what you do.
Be willing to be happy.
Those who have found a way to serve are the happiest and most content.
Be open-minded and grateful.
Seek and find moments, people and circumstances to appreciate.
Develop an attitude of gratitude.
Make it a habit to look for the Good and the Good will grow for everyone.

Life is a creation from our imagination, thoughts, words, activities, appreciation, inspiration and all we are.
When we forgive and release the clouds, confusion, doubts, miscommunication and focus on what wrong, we give up recreating the misery and choose again for sanity, beauty, goodness and love.
This year, this day, this moment is your time and mine to choose again.
Let’s make this year the realization of unlimited possibility and create the life we really want.

Loving you in loving you.
When you love you, you are loving us all.
Betty Lue

Ready for Change?

Chinese New Year= Year of the Dragon + Power and Prosperity
(See 30 day Program below.)  It works!

Can you feel something changing in you? 
Do you see what needs to be undone?
Are you remembering to have fun?
Can you find the joy in everything you do?
Do you know what is real and true?
Are you living and giving and loving the authentic You?

When you give your self the Love you need, you will stop complaining about the world you see.
When you release your judgment and your fear, you may notice that your path seems clear.
When the day’s work is said and done, you will see the gift of gratitude you have won.
When you can laugh and learn, let go and live, you may experience real joy from what you give.

This world was made for you, by part of You that knows exactly where you need to grow.
And so it is time to stop and take stock of where you are today, what you want and how to pray.
Ask and receive, affirm and then believe in something greater than you human self.
The limits you put on your life come from the thought you think, the beliefs you hold.

To take your life and use if for only good is what you know you really should.
And yet the temptations, distractions and disappointments lure you into something more.
Stop yourself and think twice, what is really the best advice for what you really want to be.
Use all your wisdom, understanding, healing and compassionate tools to make better choices!

Imagine that you lead the way for all you know and those beyond.
Imagine that you are building your world from inside out.
Imagine that you need to clear the playing field and begin again to build the world you want.
Imagine you can let go and leave aside all those things and people who no longer serve your Good.
Imagine there is no sacrifice, resentment, regret or pain in releasing and stepping away with blessing.
Imagine that you can be and do and have whatever really is true for you.
Imagine that you do not know what you really want to have or be, so really look at what is true.
Imagine that no one else can tell you how to grow, to live, to create, to have and so its up to you.
Imagine that you have a canvas on which you can create exactly the life you really want.

To clear the decks and begin again on a new canvas, you must forgive it all…everything that was and is.
To choose what you really want is to listen within to your heart where joy and trust and freedom reside.
To appreciate all you have and who you are is a gift of encouragement and fulfillment to yourself.
Forgive, Choose and Appreciate.
These three practices will begin to lift you into the realm of creator of your own life experience.
Forgiving limitations. 
Choosing freedom and trust. 
And So grateful for all Good and only Good.

Love set us free to be.
Betty Lue

From a dear friend who is living the principles of attitudinal healing and true prosperity.

On my way to work a few night ago, an old popular song came on the radio.
Instead of singing along and enjoying it, I started crying!
It took a moment for my mind to catch up with my emotions.  The song transported me back to the summer of 1971.  My father must have beaten my mother again (didn't remember cause) and she was leaving him.
My older sister was 18, I was 13.  Each day after I got home from summer school and sister came home from part time job, we went hunting for an apartment at our mother's request.
We found one large enough for our mother, two younger sisters and ourselves.
I was excited at the prospect of getting out of the HELL we lived with our father.
Then our mother changed her mind!!!  What also fell into place were large purchases she made then as well as the following year. I realized my father bought my mother off!  It wouldn't be the last time either.
The anger, sense of betrayal  and helplessness of being a kid in hell, returned.  I cried harder.  One of my other selves reminded me I was driving in the dark and needed my attention in the present.
I quickly thought, what do I do, how to stop the pain NOW???  I forgave my parents and myself, I surrendered the emotional pain and blessed us all.
It was like turning off a faucet!  I was calm and clear, even happy!  It was just  more residue that needed to be released.  The clearer I become, the healthier I am.  The ability to access that process came from you.  Once again
B'Lue, thank you for you and ALL YOU DO!

What Do You Empower?

I googled “forgiving our mis-creations” for my Sunday talk at Unity today.  My Loving Reminder came up first. Wow! And the next thing was a book by Angela Hart, “The Teaching of Little Crow”.  The pages I read are right on and I recommend that you find and read her little book.  Thank you Angela for listening within and knowing what is true.

To what or to whom do you give power?
What you believe in has power.
What you imagine to be cause in your life has power.
What you are allegiant to is Power for you.

When you imagine that your body is the author of your life, you give it power.
When you imagine your feelings are telling you the truth, you give them power.
When you imagine that the money you have is the source of your worth, you give them power.
When you imagine that a person, teacher, writing or belief system is right, you give it power.

In this life, we are here to discern what it is that is true for us.
We are here to give allegiance only to that which is good.
We can choose who and what we empower with our faith.
We are able to create and dissolve again and again what we believe.

When we empower stuff, we spend time researching, experimenting and evaluating stuff.
When we believe in the power of ownership, we strengthen our ability to acquire and accumulate possessions.
When trusting in the numbers of people ruled, we dictate other’s allegiance to  our way.
When dependent on the knowledge of outside authorities, we seek the most confident and powerful.

Wherever we place our trust, we empower with our dependence and loyalty.
Whomever we believe, we rely on their wisdom to lead our life choices.
Whenever we rely on another source, we step away from our inner Re Source.
However, we choose to live without assuming total responsibility, we disempower our Higher Self.

When we realize, there is a Power and a Presence that lives within us.
When we are willing to acknowledge and forgive our mis creations, we call on the Higher Power within.
When we recognize that we have inbuilt a failsafe system of clearing and  undoing, we can erase mistakes.
When we empower ourselves with the simple knowledge of creating and undoing, we are free.

Empower what you know to be True.
Empower the Love you have in You.
Empower the Power of creation in your life.
Empower the Forgiveness of all pain and all strife.

Struggle and challenge are the gym in which we exercise our right to choose.
Pain and sickness of the body is simply another opportunity to choose or lose.
Having things often blinds us and gets in our way.
Simplifying what we own and seek become child’s play.

Regret nothing, but see it all as a tool.
Forgive yourself and know there is no external rule.
Give yourself to love and enjoy each new day.
Be at home with your life and let it be a learning play.

Believing in You, the Real You!

“Our Greatest Fear” 
Our greatest fear
is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light,
not our darkness,
that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves,
“Who am I to be brilliant,
gorgeous, talented and fabulous?”
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that others won’t feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us.
It is not just in some of us,
it is in everyone,
and as we let our own light shine
we unconsciously give other people permission
to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear
our presence automatically liberates others.

Create What You Really Want

Child of the Great Creator, Creative Power, Great Mystery, Almighty, Higher Power and All That Is.
You are here to create.
When you love your creations and know they benefit All That Is, You will believe in your creation.
When you judge your creations and believe they have done harm, You will withhold your creativity.

We have learned to diminish ourselves, belittle and blame external sources for our plight.
We tend to exalt what is outside ourselves and then doubt or hate Authority. (the author of our world)
When we judge what is the Origin, the Author of Life, the Source of our current state, we judge ourselves.
When we praise the Origin, the Source and Author of our lives, we take on the qualities of creation.

What do you really want?
Much of life seems to be sorting what is valuable to us.
We ask, make and attach to what we say we want, only to throw it away and demand more.
What could our lives be if we gracefully and gratefully appreciated the smorgasbord of possibility?

Since the mid 70”s I have been aware of my creations.
I take responsibility for the choices I make and the experiences I have.
To do and undo whatever is not good for everyone is always my choice.
I quickly and easily erase, forgive myself and release my mis-creations.

I am learning. We are learning.
Just like a school child, erasing whatever is not perfected until the paper is rubbed through.
There I find a new world, empty and open and free.
When all is done and undone, is it possible there is nothing we want…….

Perhaps we already are what we want?
Perhaps we already have what we need?
Perhaps we already do what we are here to do?
Perhaps our holy work is to undo?

I recognize each one is in their own stage of spiritual development.
The unfolding of our awareness comes through experiences, not from these words.
When we discover “we are in a place just right, we will be in the valley of love and delight.”
As I follow my heart, listening within, each day has its own magic, because love lives within.

And so it is…..
My vision is heaven on earth.
My faith is in the letting go of what is not.
My desire is for all to be happy and grateful to be.
My commitment is to be all that IAM.
My plan is to listen to all guidance from Love.
My work is to trust and be free.
My gratitude is for All That Is.

This is what I really want, and therefore it is that which I AM.
So be it, always in gratitude and joy,

Forgiving Our Mis–Creations

Awareness without judgment is healing.
We can change all things.
Everything is possible when we trust and access the God, the Divine within.
We are the responsible for everything we experience. we ask for and receive as we have asked.
Therefore it is ours to undo whatever is not true and loving, healed and holy.

A few ways I have easily and quickly forgiven and erased our mis-creations.
Rain and Snow Dance with the Arapaho People
Let the trees talk to me.
In nature I speak and watch how immediately I experience feedback.
Loving myself without condition.
Letting go of fear and placing my attention on faith.
Using the 30 days Enlightenment practice.
I forgive myself for limiting myself.
Stepping away from all fear-based and confusing influences.

Mistakes are opportunities to learn.
Mistakes are made, on purpose so we can get clear about what we really want and value.
Mis-takes are chances to see things differently.
When we judge our mistakes, we are doomed to repeat them.

Our holy and healing work is to clear the mistakes of humanity.
Our forgiveness work is to heal all past generations.
Our vocation is to see things with forgiving eyes.
Our life is a holy opportunity to clear what we do not value.

The only way to heal is to forgive and choose to live with perfect Love.
When we can see beyond the apparency and stop judging what has been, we can choose what is to be.
When we are willing to change our perception from wrong-mindedness to right-mindedness, we can see all things in a positive and helpful way.
When what we have chosen is not the highest and best for everyone, it needs healing.

Mistakes are fun, safe and easy.
Letting go is fun, safe and easy.
I no longer need to judge, justify or vilify mistakes or those who are mistaken.
I now easily let go of all negative positions and trust in the unfolding process of forgiveness and healing.

The work in life is to see all things working together for Good and for Goodness Sake.
The real vocation is to realize trust will settle every problem, dilemma or conflict now.
The healing work is to remember everything always works more exquisitely than we can plan.
The affirmative response to every mistake is to forgive my judgments and see things differently.

The blessings already are, when we let go of everything that is not a blessing.
Live, Love, Laugh and Let Go, and you will know God (Love, Heaven, Goodness) is All that Really Is.
Loving you,  
Betty Lue

Forgiveness is the Key to Happiness and Inner Peace
Every morning and every night, say this prayer:
I forgive everything and everyone, every experience and every memory of the past and present that needs forgiveness.
I forgive positively everyone.

God is Love.
I am forgiven and governed by God’s Love alone.
God’s Love is now harmonizing my life and its problems.
Realizing this, I abide in peace.

I am now forgiven by everything and everyone of the past and present that needs to forgive me.
I know that forgiveness unblocks whatever stands between me and my good.

I am grateful for the power of God’s Word.
