Being Righteously Right 

Wherever we are attached to our perception, opinion, evaluation, belief, we are limited.
Wherever we argue for our viewpoint to be heard and understood, we are stuck.
Wherever we cling to the need for agreement or approval, we are limiting ourselves.
Wherever we seek to be right and make another wrong, we have closed our minds.

All blessings are seen with open-mindedness and appreciation.
All true perception is experienced when we are willing to learn.
All real intimacy happens when we listen and understand first, before making ourselves heard.
All love is found when we are joined in freedom to express and trust in all points of view.

Right perception is seeing with the eyes of forgiveness and love.
The forgiveness is for ourselves to clear our misperceptions and limiting beliefs.
When we are willing to see with forgiving eyes, we behold either Love or the call for Love.
All soul's long to love and be loved.

The highest truth moves beyond our narrow perceptions in which are minds seek to be right.
The inner wisdom guides us to follow the path to seeking goodness, beauty and wholeness.
The spiritual direction provides opportunities for healing our limiting perceptions.
The Love we are refuses to quit and chooses to seek ways and means to be happy in Love.

I know when attached, I am needy.
I know when stuck, I need to be willing.
I know when demanding, I am afraid.
I know when weak, I am defensive.

I forgive my judgments and mistaken perceptions.
I am willing to be wrong.
I love my mistakes.
I learn from everyone and everything.
I am open and willing to find the Highest Good for All.

Always Loving you and All,
Betty Lue

May the light of love and devotion shine brightly in your hearts.
May the light of understanding shine in your minds.
May the light of harmony glow in your home.
May the light of service shine forth ceaselessly from your hands.
May the light of peace emanate from your being.
May your presence light the lamps of love and peace wherever you go.
May your smile, your words and your actions be as sweet as the sweets of this festive season.
May Maha Laxmi bring you the true wealth of health, happiness, peace and spiritual upliftment.
