Bettty Lue’s Reminder

 

I’ve been getting Betty Lue’s Reminders for many, many years and many of them are posted up on my walls or taped in my journals. I think today’s reminder is a great one for the Anniversary of 9-11;

It is so easy to “look away” for the causes of our conflicts and troubles, when I always need the reminder to “look within”.

It is there I also find love, joy, freedom and life abundant!

September 11, 2012 Loving Reminders

Are You Willing to Take Responsibility?

Are you willing and able to respond in a helpful and effective way?
Are you willing to learn to respond with respect rather than react in fear?
Are you willing to listen and understand before you seek to be heard?
Are you willing to be open to change what does not work rather than push your way?

You are the one for whom you are responsible.
You have a mind with thoughts you can choose.
You have emotions which you can manage.
You have energy bodies which you can use.

You and only you have the power and sovereignty to choose what is best.
You can be responsible for your thoughts, your emotions and your use of your body.
Are you willing to stop blaming anyone else for your choices?
Are you willing to stop using excuses and justifications?

You can stop giving away your power by blaming others.
You can stop weakening yourself by allowing others to make your decisions.
You can stop saying, “I don’t know” and take the risk of knowing what is true for you.
You can stop allowing past experiences to make decisions that no longer have validity.

YOU have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Are you living the life you want?
Are you freely expressing your truth and living your dreams?
Are you actively and daily choosing happiness for yourself?

None of this requires money or wealth.
None of this requires the approval of others.
None of this requires that you break rules or live an irresponsible life.
None of this requires absolute guarantees for success.

Life fully, freely, joyously and abundantly lived is risky.
When you are full of fear, worry and doubt, your push Goodness out.
When you are filled with Love, Joy and Peace, everything is within your reach.
You can do whatever you choose and commit to do for You.

For those who are first responsible for and to others, consider this:
When you are not at your best, you cannot give anyone else the Best You Are.
Take time daily to give you what is Good for you.
Then All the Good you do for others, fills you too!

Are you willing to be responsible for your own happiness?
Are you willing to be responsible for your inner peace?
Are you willing to be responsible for your healing and health?
Are you willing to be responsible for all you think and say and do?

Sounds like a really important and meaningful job, and it is!!

From Christine’s blog dadirridreaming:

Ballyvourney

by dadirri7

“The narrow winding road around Slea Head, with it’s spectacular views of the Great Blasket Islands and vivid green hillsides dotted with sheep, attracts many visitors. Some find their way down the cliffside to this beach, used for filming some of the scenes in Ryan’s Daughter. Low cloud is common here, on the western-most peninsular of land in Europe.”

“Pilgrims visit the old church, and a statue of Saint Gobnait, her grave and Holy Well, walking in a carefully prescribed pattern, reciting prayers. The instructions and directions are clear, and crosses are etched deeply into markers along the way. I followed the pattern, but said my own prayers for our Earth and the rise of the Divine Feminine that will restore balance and peace to us all.”

Napkinwriter thanks you Christine, for this meditative walk in Ireland — one she hopes to make with her own footprints one day.
