Doing the Work 

The work in life is never-ending.
The temptations of the world are daunting.
The seduction of buying and spending and giving to get is obvious.
Life offers unlimited options and paths on which to walk.

The question is: temporal pleasures or eternal treasures?
The invitation to serve Spirit is calling.
The end of suffering is the choice to Love with non attachment.
The value of consistent forgiveness is true happiness.

The choice is with us each moment and in every encounter.
Who am I? Why am I here?
Who and how an I to serve?
The answer is clear when we listen inside to the voice of Loving Wisdom.

Life requires us to consciously remember Love and choose to live in Love.
Life offers options to forget and forgive, to forgive and forget.
Life is the learning lab where we will all finally get the Truth, the awakening.
This is the place. We are the One. Now is the time.

So let’s remind one another to do the healing and Holy work!

Loving you,
Betty Lue

One evening an old Apache told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.
He said, "My son, the battle is between two "wolves" inside us all.
One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.
The other is good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith."
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: "Which wolf wins?"
The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed.”
