2012 Completion and 2013 Beginnings

How do you end what has been experienced by you?
Do you take time to complete past experiences?
Do you fully receive and appreciate your challenges, learning, regrets and blessings?
What are you doing to receive the benefits of the past year?

People move from one year to another, one relationship and one job to another without benefit. 
People seem to avoid or push aside or become defensive and deny what they have learned and regretted.
People often simply want to move on without fully receiving the gifts of yesterday to bless them today.
Where you hold regrets and guilt you may fail to learn and benefit from what has been.

Take time to offer honorable closure with the year past. (See the process below.)
When you want to lighten the burden of past errors, destructive habits or hurt, use forgiveness.
Take time to write down all that you want to release from your mind, emotions and body.
Purify it with burning, burying, shredding and forgiving the words your have written.

Really undo what you no longer want to be true for you.
Let go of what you no longer need that which no longer serves you.
Relinquish the stuff you have accumulated that does not make you happy.
Give up and lighten up and clean up your space so you make room for the coming Good.

There are rituals and affirmations you can use to stay conscious and clear your creative canvas.
I no longer cling to what has no value or meaning for me.
I set myself free to be fully that which I Am in giving and living.
I write the script for my life with positive love and enthusiasm.
I know what I want and I go for it.
Life is a beautiful masterpiece of my creative passion and spiritual guidance.
I no longer cling to unhappiness, fear or failure as I release myself simply to happy, loving successes.

We can take time during our New Year’s celebration to write the qualities we seek to live in 2013.
We can use proclamations and declarations to clarify with confidence and certainty our deepest desires.
We can recycle those blessing and learnings from the past to build our future.
We can enjoy with full appreciation everything we have and give ourselves the rewards of fulfillment.

I encourage you and each one to take the time to participate in meaningful ritual.
I invite you and everyone to fully forgive the past trusting that all that benefits will be retained.
I support you in nurturing and nourishing your inspired vision and highest desires for Good.
I trust you to do what is Good for you and I believe in your willingness and ability to create Goodness.

With the experiences of Goodness come great Peace.
With the experience of Peace, comes happiness.
With the enjoyment of Happiness comes profound Love.
With Love, Happiness and Peace, all things are possible.

Dare to give your Self what you really want!
Betty Lue
Consider this simple healing ritual for the year 2012!

Honorable Closure        

How do you complete a relationship, a marriage, a teaching-learning experience, a job, a friendship? How do you know you are really complete?
Often people walk away without really finishing the spiritual work, because it is easier emotionally.   People don’t know how to come to a truly peaceful place, where “good-bye” is really “God be with You.”  
When we are complete, we are at peace and in love.  
We have no regrets, no resentments, no unhappy memories. 

Honorable closure acknowledges:
1)   the learning and growth received, 
2)   challenges and difficulties experienced, 
3)   appreciation of gifts and blessings, 
4)   forgiveness and amends made. 

Acknowledge within your self and with the other person all that you have learned and how you have grown and benefited from the experience. 

Honor and express the challenges and difficulties that occurred and perhaps were endured during the time together. 

Offer your gratitude and appreciation to the other for the benefits you received.

Share your forgiveness and/or make amends for those places of unconscious or conscious errors of omission or commission.  Often neither party is aware of what went unexpressed until the two have an opportunity to talk together.  This is very valuable when done with the conscious intention for a peaceful conclusion.  

And lastly, give your full appreciation and blessings to those whom you are leaving.   

Honorable closure always includes a face to face or heart to heart connection so that all parties have a full opportunity to express their piece of the whole. Incompletion is never one sided. If one party loses and is in grief neither person is at peace.  
Do your part when you part. 
When we complete a relationship, job, living situation with honor for all, we are free to choose again without being haunted by the past or unconsciously repeating the same patterns. 

To move on, to create anew, to be fully inspired requires honorable closure.  Begin now.

Saying good-bye can be done with love, respect and profound gratitude and inner peace.

Pay Attention

There are no accidents.
Everything in life has a healing purpose.
When we judge, condemn or criticize people and situations, we may miss the healing.
When we stop, look, listen and forgive, we can learn to respond to the healing call.

Everyone is a teacher for one another.  
Our life stories can inspire or discourage one another.  
What we don’t like can teach us what not to do.
What we do like educates and inspires us to do what we value. 

Whom we admire shows us how we want to be, to heal and grow. 
Where we are and the experiences we have are all designed to wake us up.
When we wake up grouchy and afraid, we cannot see and respond to the call for Love.
When we wake up curious, trusting and willing, we can see how we can benefit ourselves and others.

So it is, we are a circle of humanity offering benefit and blessings to everything and everyone.   
We give and receive the gift of forgiveness, and erase with Love the pain, hurt and suffering.
We respond to all things with loving kindness, respect and willingness to forgive our own fears.
We make no assumptions and always give our best, as we remember to pay attention.

Love is the healing agent.
When we cannot be loving, we must first heal ourselves.
When we do not think or speak in respectful ways, we must stop and forgive our own lack of love.
When we are lacking in our ability to treat others and ourselves well, we need to love ourselves well.

Effective Reminders:
Do not make decisions or talk out problems when people are upset.  
Emotions always distort our perceptions, our thoughts, words and behaviors.
Emotional reactions do not offer clarity or Truth.
When we want creative effective and helpful solutions, we must bring our peaceful intention.

Bottled up feelings often explode in hurtful and unproductive ways.
Give yourself permission to ask and answer meaningful questions.
What do you and I really want…more than anything else?
What is the outcome we desire and what can we do to meet everyone’s best interests?

When we seek to be right, we will often create resistance or resentment.
When we seek to be happy, we usually look for what will bring happiness to all parties.
When we want to win, we often generate competition, pushiness and war with words and power.
When we want everyone to be satisfied, we negotiate and mediate positive mutual respectful outcomes. 

When we want harmony, we must first stop our fearful reactions and righteousness.
It requires paying attention and intention for what will be truly helpful.
Life teaches us to join rather than separate so that everyone benefits.
Love shows us how to listen and respond with respect and a sincere desire for peace.

Paying attention to what works for all of us,
Betty Lue

Is It Time to Let Go?

To have a new beginning, we must complete the past with blessings and gratitude.
Where we have anger, we sill attract more of the same.
Where we have resentment, we will see more to resent.
Where we feel injustice, we  will seek out proof we are “right”.

When will we learn, we must release our attachment to the past?
When will we learn, the past repeats itself with our attention?
When will we learn, we can only create anew on a clean canvas?
When will we learn, forgiveness is the way to be happy now today?

How long will you hang on to past pain and suffering?
How much will you carry around with you before you drop?
How bad do you need to feel before you stop making the past real?
How crazy do we need to get to stop making a life of regret?

Politicians cling to their past alliances and promises.
World leaders make decisions based on getting even.
Parents punish kids for yesterday’s errors or bad grades.
Partners seek revenge on those who betrayed them.

It all makes us sick.
We, as a people, become sick of carrying around the toxic thoughts and feelings.
We, as a society, teach each other to be cruel, defensive and punitive.
We act out our sickness mentally, emotionally, physically, politically, financially and every way.

We can make the difference.
We can forgive it all.
We can seek to find and live a better way.
We can choose to love everyone with no “why” or “because”.

Are you willing to love your “enemies”?
Are you willing to step away from “fights”?
Are you willing to be the One who extends peace?
Are you willing to live everyday with kindness and respect in your thoughts, words and behavior.

Are you willing to stop trying to get your way?
Are you willing to listen to what others believe?
Are you willing to apologize for human errors?
Are you willing to always give the best you have?

It is time to let go.
I do not know what is best for you.
I can only do what I am called to do.
I trust, believe and respect you and what you choose for you.

I am willing to let Go and let Good into our lives.
I am willing to let go and know there is a Higher Good that is happening when I make room.
I am willing to stop trying to understand others’ apparent lack of kindness and respect.
I am willing to forgive myself for my errors and choose again to be the best I know.

I am willing, 
Betty Lue

Here for You and with You!

We are here for you.
We are all in this together
What we give, we receive.
What we share, we remember.

This is absolutely true for us, as demonstrated by our lives.
When Robert and I were brought together almost 28 years ago, we knew we were here to serve.
We continue to be inspired to educate and facilitate, to inspire and create, to serve and support.
Our lives have always been dedicated to giving everyone the best we have so that all might benefit!

Love heals.
Peace brings awareness. 
Joy energizes.
Gratitude increases.

Life is an ever-renewing circle of opportunities for awakening to the Good that already is.
When we can see it and feel it and believe that Good awaits us, we are all inspired to find it.
When we know those who are living the Good life, we can forgive where we deny ourselves.
When we forgive resistance, denial, self punishment and fear, we create what we really want.

Are you ready to experience more good in your life?
Are you willing to end all suffering and strife?
Are you open to live and give the Good that you know?
Are you trusting that you too will find ways to heal and to grow?

You will not have what you do not share.
For one to keep it all is not the way of nature.
The sun shines and the rains fall on everyone.
Life is a gift of creation, enjoyment and letting go.

Too often humans are so focused on getting what they want.
People often forget about giving what they have.
Folks get stuck in the fear of keeping what they have gotten.
They don’t see selfishness and hoarding makes things rotten.

Give what you have when it no longer has value for you.
Clean your closets and storage. 
Recycle and reuse what is useable by others.
Share what you have with your human sisters and brothers.

We love because we are Love.
We give because Life is a Gift.
We forgive because the past is gone.
We serve because everything serves US~

Loving you,  
Betty Lue

Moderation in All Things

Some say too much excitement may lead to anxiety.
Pre-Miracle Anxiety followed by Post-Miracle Depression.  
Some see special times of year as stressful, scary or depressing.
You can make today the best day you have ever chosen for yourself!

Every day is an opportunity to choose.
Every day is a time of delight and miracles.
Every day is a choice to forgive and begin again.
Every encounter can be healing and holy.
Every moment can be the One, you have waited for.
Every forgiveness can forgive it all.
Every healing thought can bring healing to everyone for all time.
Every grateful thought offers praise to every mind.
Every word of peace brings more peace to your world. 
Every song of joy bring happiness to one and all.
Every gift of love is a place of kindness.
Every time we see the Light within, we are reminded of our own.
Every place where we end fear and prejudice heals the hatred in the world.

Life is for giving.
We are the Gift.
When we remember to give, we recognize the Gift we are.
When we are trying to “get”, we see ourselves as lacking.

Easy to say.
Safe to realize.
Fun to do.
Life can be fun, safe and easy when you are loving you.

The end of the world as we have known it is when we allow the past to be gone.
The end of 2012 is when we recognize there we are complete with gratitude and blessings.
The end of pain and problems comes by washing away the mistakes of yesterday with forgiveness today.
The end of relationships with honorable closure opens the possibilities of respectful relationships now.

When will we learn, life is not something that we “get” by being good?
Life is what we co-create by the Good we give.
Life does not reward us, but getting a “prize” or “present”.
Life is what we give ourselves by being “present” with Love in us..

Enter into life today, making each encounter Holy.
Enter into relationships today giving each one your Loving kindness.
Enter into the healing of today by seeing everything differently.
Enter into the creations of today by enjoying the process of creating

You are the giver.
You are the gift.
You are the receiver.
You are the Presence.

Loving you in fully realizing the Awesome Allness in You.
Betty Lue
Look for healthy ways to celebrate. 

Wednesday, December 26, 2012

What Now?

Are you complete with the holidays?
Have you said “thank you” for all the gifts in your life?
Did you clean up the projects that needed attention?
Have you created honorable closure with those you have encountered?

Have you stayed to long where you are not wanted or needed?
Did you try too hard or quit too soon?
Do you play the game of being a victim of circumstances?
Have you taken full responsibility for the ways you respond to every experience?

Do you know how and when to say “good bye”?
Do you wait for others to dismiss, fire or abandon you?
Have you played the waiting and see game or do you take charge?
Are you willing to release this year 2012 with your blessings?

Celebration is best when we finish with gratitude.
Appreciation comes when we receive what we have been given.
Our receptivity is a product of how well we love the One we are.
When we have forgiven all judgment, we open fully to recognize our creations.

Mis-creations are simply those experiences we have not yet learned the lesson.
Recognizing we are always learning from everything and everyone is a key to growth.
Understanding that we cannot understand another’s path and life choices is helpful.
Being at peace with others’ choices gives us the opportunity to take responsibility for our own.

Yes, it seems we judge what others do.
Yes, we may wish others chose the way we prefer.
Yes, we may compare our lives with others, either favorably or not.
Yes, we assume we know what is best, but cannot understand our own choices.

We seem to learn most easily when we do not judge.
We seem to quickly make new choices when we do not regret or blame.
We seem to heal and grow easily  when we trust in the value of each experience.
We seem to get on with our own happy, productive and fulfilling life when we appreciate our own.

To judge is to condemn. 
When we condemn we block the flow.
To block the flow is to get stuck.
To get stuck is to create toxicity.
Toxicity begets pain, suffering, negativity and poisons the well for new life choices.

To forgive is to release fear.
To release fear is to open the flow.
To open the flow is to be free.
To be free is to create new possibilities.
New Possibilities  beget hope, joy, optimism, healing, cleansing and renewing life choices.

Are you ready to forgive and bless the past?
Are you ready to choose and create a happy present?
Are you ready to enjoy your life as it is?
Are you ready to appreciate and watch your life increase Love, Peace and Joy?

Loving and trusting us all in making ready for the New Year!
Betty Lue

If you  enjoyed Robert’s Twas the Night Before Christmas on the 24th, you will love The Week After Christmas”.

The Week After Christmas

T’was the week after Christmas and all through the land
Things were all settled, it was all pretty bland.
The gifts put away, the sales all complete
Settled down by the tube in my favorite seat.
I had my awareness written down in my book
Had my insights, ideas and whatever it took.
The spiritual lessons had been easy to share
They were all filed away (I’m not really sure where).
When deep down inside me there arose such a clatter
It was really unfair. Now what was the matter?
Away from my chair I flew like a flash
I looked in the mirror and then came the crash.
My life was unsettled with nothing the same
And the worst of it all—there was no one to blame.
When what to my wondering eye should appear
But a glowing white light, from behind my left ear.
With a little old angel so lively and quick
I’d seen him before. I was going to be sick.
More rapid than eagles his pronouncements they came
And he whistled and shouted and called me some names.
“More action and faith and tolerance and trust
Now listen within and be responsible, you must.
To topple complacency and breach the fear wall
Now dash away, smash away, drop away all.”
As leaves caught up in a hurricane fly
All of my thoughts were thrown up to the sky.
And as they were jumbled and tumbled and swirled
I knew when they landed, it would be a new world.
And then in a twinkling, I felt it all start
The seeds of awareness awakening my heart.
As I came to my senses (picked myself off the floor)
I saw in my mind’s eye, a picture of more.
A world bathed in light, from the south to the north
With every one on it aware of his worth.
No one was waiting for others to do, 
Or to fix or to heal or to make it all new.
Their eyes how they twinkled, their dimples how merry
When they each played their part, the world was easy to carry.
The smile on each mouth was drawn up like a bow
Shining laughter and love wherever they’d go.
The aura of kindness bespoke inner peace
Letting each individual experience release.
Oh the bright shiny faces, wherever you’d look
It seemed—to be willing was all that it took.
To start with ourselves, from deep down inside
To give our true gifts, not to withhold or hide.
With no blame, shame or guilt for our seeming mistakes,
A little forgiveness is all that it takes.
To clean up our world from inside to out
It was simple and happy and I wanted to shout.
Once I see the Christ presence in each person’s face
We all become one, with no distance or space.
I recalled in that moment just what my gift was
To love all of my brothers, with no “why” or “because”.
And I’m here to exclaim as I set myself free
I remember the truth—It all starts with me.

Thanks to the recommendation of my grandchildren Grandma, you will love this movie!”

Much symbology for us all.

Let Joy Lead the Way!

Read Robert’s poem below and you will remember You Are Santa Claus!
Where there is joy, there is Love.
Where there is joy, there is Innocence.
Where there is Joy, there is Forgiveness.
Where there is Joy, there is Gratitude.          

Joy is Light and full of deLight.
Joy is the light that guides the path of those who trust.
Joy is the song that sings in our hearts hymns of praise.
Joy is the freedom to listen within and follow what sings to you.

What brings you joy?
What makes your heart sing?
What lifts your spirits?
What inspires you to give?

Let the children lead us.
Let their natural expression make us smile.
And when we see them sad or hurt or scared.
We feel guilt, because we have not heard or honored them well.

When we see a world in which children are harmed, we know we need to change.
When we feel children hungry or in pain, unloved and neglected, we need to act.
When we understand we have misguided and taught them falsely, we need to forgive.
When we find our inner child is forgotten and forsaken, we must forgive ourselves.

Let us love the little children, all the children.
Let us listen to the child inside who knows not their dreams are important.
Let us believe each one, including ourselves deserves to be heard, trusted and respected.
Let us appreciate the calling for Love in the form it will be most received.

Some need quality time spent being together with no distraction or interruption.
“Just play with me, be with me, see me and listen to me.”
Some need words of kindnessaffirmation and love.
“You are the best. I love you.  Thanks you the precious gift of Love you are.”
Some need touch and affection.
“Hug me. Hold me. Rock me. Lay down beside me.”
Some need gifts and special treasures from us.
“I want something to sleep with, to put in my room to remember your love.”
Some need acts of service. Buy me something.”
“Help me with my homework. Help me clean up my room.
Make my hair pretty
Help me get a present for my friend’s birthday.”

Give every child Joy. (especially You!)
When you give Joy to yourself, you can easily give Joy to others.
Joy is like the sun shining through tears and fears.
Joy is the laughter that comes from sheer delight and amazement.
Joy is the some of a truly grateful soul.

Remember, you are the Gift.
This is the time to reclaim the precious child within.
Loving you, 
Betty Lue

T’was The Night Before Christmas

T'was the night before Christmas and all through the earth
Was the light of love shining, a holy new birth.
Forgiveness completed, all judgments aside,
My conscience was clear with no hint of pride.
My worries behind me (I'd put them to bed)
While visions so heavenly danced in my head.
The job and the family, all routine, a snap.
Unaware, I was into a spiritual nap.

When out of the calm, there arose such a clatter.
My life was unsettled.  Now what was the matter.
Away from my habits I flew like a flash.
I threw off attachments, and then came the crash.
The feeling was alien, nothing the same.
I couldn't describe it or give it a name.
When what to my wondering eye should appear
But a blaze of white light, and coming so near, 
With a little old angel so lively and quick
I knew in a moment, I was going to be sick.

More rapid than eagles his values they came
And he whistled and shouted and called them by name:
"More honesty, tolerance, gentleness, trust,
Faithful and generous, with patience a must.
To topple defenses and breach the fear wall
Now dash away, smash away, drop away all."

As just as the leaves in a hurricane swirl,
Or a dancer will leap or will jump or will twirl,
So up in the air all the pieces they flew
And I felt when I looked, I'd see everything new.
And then in a twinkling, I felt with a start,
The growing and glowing, expanding my heart.
As I came to my senses and was turning around
I saw in the mirror an image profound.
He was bathed in bright light from his head to his toe
(His clothes were quite common so no one would know)
The weight of the world had just dropped from his back
And he danced like a peddler devoid of his pack.

He moved and he walked with a sense of great ease.
His lack of self-judgment made him easy to please.
The smile of his mouth was the shape of a bow,
It would light up a crowd wherever he'd go.
His relative silence bespoke inner peace
Letting all in his presence experience release.
He had a bright face and a happy, strong laugh
Which touches the heart, cuts resistance in half.
He was loving and kind, a right jolly old elf
And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself.
A wink of his eye and a nod of his head
Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread.
He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work.
He listened within (a somewhat strange quirk).
But touching his hand to the side of my face
We joined, became one, with no distance or space. 
I knew in that moment just what my gift was
To love all of my brothers, with no "why" or "because".
And I'm here to exclaim, as I grow in Love's light,
Merry Christmas to all, it will turn out all right.

Does Life Bring Joy?

Do you listen for the Good News? 
Do you look for the Love in All that Is?
Do you enjoy the gift of giving?
Do you allow yourself the delight of a child?

Do you ever imagine that your whole life is a gift?
Have you received the riches of each holy encounter?
Do you look at the stars and wonder which one is yours?
Do you let yourself laugh big and let tears of joy come to you?

Do you fill up with gratitude when you see someone being loved?
Do you freely share the Love in your heart?
Do you tell those near you how very much you care?
Do you allow yourself to share the sweetness and miracles in your life?

What will it take for us to live for Goodness Sake?
Could it be we are missing the REAL Present here?
What if it was left out in the cold or under the tree?
When we feel the amazing joy of innocence love, we know the Truth.

Life is a gift that just keeps on giving as long as we love it.
When we appreciate each moment, that we have, we continue to have more.
When we love each one in our lives, we trust there will always be loved ones there.
When we value the opportunity to share the Good we have, we always have Good to give.

Life and Love and Light are the gifts we have to share.
When we share what we have, we have abundantly.
When we enjoy each healing and holy moment, we feel whole and happy.
When we are awakened by the light within us, we feel gratitude and joy.

What will it take to know?
We need no presents. We need only to be present.
We need no parties.  We need only to be happy.
We need spend no money.  We need only extend our kindness and joy.

When we are willing to laugh as a child, we are set free with glee.
When we are willing to rise with the sun, we are at One with the Light.
When we are willing to share what we have, we are rich with gifts for all.
When we are willing to love each new day, we are teach all to pray only “Thank You.”

We are the ones who give what is real.
We are the ones who share what we feel.
We are the ones who shine like the sun.
We are the ones who truly love everyone.

What a joy, simply to be, Betty Lue

Eight-year-old Virginia O'Hanlon wrote a letter to the editor of New York's Sun, and the quick response was printed as an unsigned editorial Sept. 21, 1897. The work of veteran newsman Francis Pharcellus Church has since become history's most reprinted newspaper editorial, appearing in part or whole in dozens of languages in books, movies, and other editorials, and on posters and stamps.

"DEAR EDITOR: I am 8 years old. 
"Some of my little friends say there is no Santa Claus. 
"Papa says, 'If you see it in THE SUN it's so.' 
"Please tell me the truth; is there a Santa Claus?


VIRGINIA, your little friends are wrong. They have been affected by the skepticism of a skeptical age. They do not believe except they see. They think that nothing can be which is not comprehensible by their little minds. All minds, Virginia, whether they be men's or children's, are little. In this great universe of ours man is a mere insect, an ant, in his intellect, as compared with the boundless world about him, as measured by the intelligence capable of grasping the whole of truth and knowledge.

Yes, VIRGINIA, there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist, and you know that they abound and give to your life its highest beauty and joy. Alas! how dreary would be the world if there were no Santa Claus. It would be as dreary as if there were no VIRGINIAS. There would be no childlike faith then, no poetry, no romance to make tolerable this existence. We should have no enjoyment, except in sense and sight. The eternal light with which childhood fills the world would be extinguished.

Not believe in Santa Claus! You might as well not believe in fairies! You might get your papa to hire men to watch in all the chimneys on Christmas Eve to catch Santa Claus, but even if they did not see Santa Claus coming down, what would that prove? Nobody sees Santa Claus, but that is no sign that there is no Santa Claus. The most real things in the world are those that neither children nor men can see. Did you ever see fairies dancing on the lawn? Of course not, but that's no proof that they are not there. Nobody can conceive or imagine all the wonders there are unseen and unseeable in the world.

You may tear apart the baby's rattle and see what makes the noise inside, but there is a veil covering the unseen world which not the strongest man, nor even the united strength of all the strongest men that ever lived, could tear apart. Only faith, fancy, poetry, love, romance, can push aside that curtain and view and picture the supernal beauty and glory beyond. Is it all real? Ah, VIRGINIA, in all this world there is nothing else real and abiding. 

No Santa Claus! Thank God! he lives, and he lives forever. A thousand years from now, Virginia, nay, ten times ten thousand years from now, he will continue to make glad the heart of childhood.

The Light Has Come

The Light Has Come. I have forgiven the world.
It is judgments and fear that keep us in the dark.
It is separation from Self, Source and others that pull the shades.
It is neglecting the Light within that creates guilt and blame.

When the Light has come, we see the cleaning we need to do.
When the honored guest appears, we want to give our best. ( Everyone is to be honored.)
Let’s prepare our lives for innocent trust and abundant Love.
Let’s stop putting obstacles in our way to stumble on and lose our way.

Time to clean out the Stable.
Time to clean up our minds.
Time to clear our archived history.
Time to clean up what we ingest.
Time to clear us false beliefs.
Time to complete what is left undone.
Time to keep our agreements.
Time to clean up negative communication.
Time to undo what is not true.
Time to make right what was left in a fight.
Time to stop complaining and start reclaiming.
Time to suspend all judgments and opinions.
Time to shine a light on what we kept in the dark.
Time to clear the fear and know Love is here.

Forgiveness is the cosmic cleaner.
Forgiveness is an eraser filled with Love.
Forgiveness is remembering to flush.
Forgiveness is no harm, no guilt, no blame.

Forgiveness is remembering the truth.
Forgiveness is releasing the past.
Forgiveness is undoing what is not whole and true.
Forgiveness is the key to happiness and inner peace.

It certainly is our time.
Turn up the lights.
Wash away the tears and fears.
See the Beauty and Goodness that already is.

I Am She Who Remembers.
I Am a True Believer.
We are Love.
That’s the Truth.
Betty Lue

A Time Of Transformation 

The Piscean Age
The Piscean Age was a time filled with victimization consciousness, a time of being at the effect of outer authority, learning to accept the way it was, expressing no preferences, being docile, submissive and humbly suffering in silence, self-martyrdom, giving all for the sake of others, believing that to have less was holy, and allowing the concept of God to be one in which we suffer, pay for our sinfulness and serve others to make penance.
The age past:  Have less, suffer more, ask for nothing, wait for heaven.  The age of atonement for sins, crucifixion, suffering and sacrifice in order to reap the rewards of the Kingdom of Heaven after death.

The Aquarian Age
The coming Aquarian Age is a time where all will know they are “at cause” in their domain, co-creators with Divine Will, manifesting only that which is good, beautiful and holy.  All mankind will awaken to their Inner Authority, the Voice of Divine Consciousness and will follow only that which is for the greatest Good.  Happiness, harmony and health will reign as each individual recognizes and expresses their full potential and reaps the abundance of their natural heritage.  It will be a time of no guilt, no fear, of choosing what is valuable, expressing the Truth, giving with joy, having everything we want, and of praising God for the perfection of His creation where all live in Love and Peace and Joy:  Heaven on Earth NOW.

Transition Period
This in-between time is a period of testing and sorting through.  Man is awakening to his divinity, to his inherited right and capacity for choice.  As man awakens, great surges of guilt and fear of punishment will flow through humankind calling for forgiveness and light-filled blessing.  As man chooses to see his mis-creations without guilt, he will acknowledge the learning value, the needed undoing, and open to the opportunity to choose again for his Highest Vision.  Praise God.  We are learning to judge nothing, to wholly love and honor ourselves, to give ourselves the highest we know.

Can You See What Really Is?

Do you see the Love?
Do you appreciate the Beauty?
Are you aware of the Goodness?
Do you value the Blessings?

You don’t find what you want by complaining about what you don’t have.
When we cannot see, it is because we judge and fear what we have judged.
When we forgive, erase and delete our judgments, we begin to see.
When we undo what we don’t want to be true, we see what is really true.

The change begins within.
When we recognize the change agent (ourselves), we can be responsible.
When we acknowledge that we create our lives with our thoughts, we can do the work.
When we blame our perceptions and experiences on outside sources, we are victims.

Complaining, feeling sorry for ourselves, commiserating leads to more of the same.
Adjusting our attitude to be fully aware of human error and lack of Love, begins change.
We all are responsible and able to respond differently.
We each can change our minds, our beliefs, our perceptions and our choices.

The Beauty is here and now.
One deep breath of full appreciation brings more Light and delight.
When we Open fully to the Good we have, we free ourselves to share more Good.
When we value the blessings of this moment, we feel full of Love and Gratitude.

Looking at what is, gives us more of what we perceive.
Looking at what isn’t gives us more of what is missing.
Simple logic tells us to seek and find what we want more to be in our reality.
Faulty teachings have told us to seek what is lacking and then try to find it.

In the awareness of an enlightened mind and enlightened world, we see the Good.
In the responsibility of an awakened Being, we know how to respond with Love.
In the willingness of a happy Learner, we teach what we want to be true.
In the Peace of those who serve, we are truly helpful by serving only Holiness.

Truth dawns on us of ItSelf.
When we have forgiven the deceptions and myths of falsehood, we see the Light.
In the Light, we see the Love and value the blessings.
In the Love, we know the Goodness and appreciate the Beauty.

The Light has come.  
I have forgiven myself.
