Make Life Work!

I learn from everything and everyone.
I seek a life that is a blessing.
I trust myself to make needed changes quickly and easily.
I do what works for all concerned.

Make Life Work for You!

Are you struggling with life?
Are you unsure of what to do?
Do you know what is not working?
Do you understand how life works?

If things could be better, begin to ask how.
If things are going well, observe how that is.
If you are unhappy, ask yourself why.
If you are anxious or upset, ask what you can learn.

We are here to learn how life works.
We need to understand what to do.
We can learn through observation.
We will learn through inquiry and exploration.

When life is working for us, we are at peace.
When we are at peace, life usually continues to work well.
When we lack peace, we can look at what changed.
When we are upset in any way, we can seek to learn.

All our thoughts, words and deeds have an effect.
Thinking upsetting or doubting thoughts has an effect.
Judging, criticizing, and questioning have an effect.
Change in how we live has an effect.

What is positive, helpful and/or beneficial has a positive effect.
What is negative, hurtful and/or dismissive has a negative effect.
We can learn what works well and what doesn’t work well.
We will understand that everything we think, say and do makes a difference.

Our work is to learn what does not work.
Our work is to release and clear what doesn’t work.
The obvious choice is to do more of what works for us.
And stop doing what does not work well for us.

Simply said, “Stop doing what is not working!”
Often people keep trying harder or longer, with more resistance.
Often organizations keep trying with complexity with more confusion.
Often governments keep trying more demands and threats with more violence.

What will it take to create a life that works for you and me?
Can we give up the punishment and choose more peaceful ways?
Are we ready to choose simply for the sake of what works for us all?
Seek in your home and work life to create a simple life that works for you.

Stop what does not work.
Seek only for a life that serves all.
Choose what is truly effective and beneficial for all.
Loving you and me, 
Betty Lue
