Free Yourself 

The one who wanders independent in the world, free from opinions and viewpoints, does not grasp them and enter into disputations and arguments. As the lotus rises on its stalk unsoiled by the mud and the water, so the wise one speaks of peace and is unstained by the opinions of the world.
-Sutta Nipata, Buddhist Teachings

Freeing ourselves from worldly opinions, judgments and comparisons is essential to be All That We Are.

Where we judge, we name ourselves and others defective and imperfect.
Where we have opinions, we make ourselves stuck in faulty thinking.
Where we compare, we make ourselves greater than or less than others.
In Truth all are the same, each one of us on our path home in the time, place and activities that are right for us to learn, teach, heal, give, receive enjoy and celebrate what we came here to experience.
There is no one lesser or greater.
There is no life better or worse.
All beings are here choosing, both unconsciously and consciously, to experience life as we are.

How do I mind my own business and tend my own garden?
When unhappy and off course, we tend to look over at others to see what and how they are doing.
When judging our progress, we seek outside authority and experts to coach and counsel.
When lost and confused, we may be so full of blame that we miss the path before us.
When buying others' opinions and criticism, we may claim guilt and shame to blind us to the blessings.

Grant yourself forgiveness from all judgment and opinions of yourself and others.
Confess you do not know and be enlightened.
Let go of believing there is a right and wrong.
Allow the spirit of goodness to fill you with the High Way of Love.
Remember the Love that lives in You and through You and Trust Wholeness is Yours.

What will your life be when you give yourself the freedom already given you?
No one and nothing limits you here.
We are all free and clear to choose the path before us.
Some paths are rocky, arduous and dangerous.
Some paths are smooth, easy and enjoyable.
Each one of us is free to choose the way we would follow.
Each one of us is free to receive suffering or blessing.
Each one of us can wait, delay, detour and distract or go have gifts we came to give and have right now.

The choice is ours.
Freedom now….or wait……
Loving you,
Betty Lue

Notes from April 8 Holistic Clinic with Robert and Betty Lue (Next one is June 3 from 2-6PM)
We are grateful you joined us for this mini-session of mind-body-spirit healing and remembering our wholeness.
Holistic Healing is really remembering to love, enjoy and celebrate all parts of our lives.
In our remembering what is True and letting go of what we need not claim, name or frame as ours, we realize and return to our Natural state of wholeness and Holiness.
It is an honor to participate with you on our united path to Perfect Love.
To serve another is to serve One Self.
