<![CDATA[Debra Clemente artist/author - excerpts]]>Fri, 27 Nov 2015 22:58:52 -0800Weebly<![CDATA[By A Golden Thread]]>Sun, 22 Nov 2015 20:30:18 GMThttp://www.debraclemente.com/excerpts/by-a-golden-threadHow do you judge other? How do you judge yourself? You say you don’t but are you so certain? I do hear your voice. I know your thoughts. They are not always so kind. No judgment is needed upon your part, anyone’s actually. It is this action which brings you out of alignment with who you are and the natural flow of life. Static is created in your naturally healthy vibrational flow.

You do not need to tell anyone who someone else is or your estimation of her. Allow each the opportunity to be who she is. She will show up as she will and prove who she is. When you judge another, you are broadcasting your limiting thoughts to the universe. You bring no harm upon anyone but yourself, as each only has access to her own vibrational flow unless you give someone else permission by agreeing with him. The Well Being of the universe, the Fount of all Goodness from which all are born, remains constantly and consistently within us, connecting us all by a golden thread.

<![CDATA[Sit tight]]>Sun, 22 Nov 2015 20:09:35 GMThttp://www.debraclemente.com/excerpts/sit-tightDon’t just tell people what you think. Don’t so broadly broadcast or impose your thoughts upon another. As you listen to another’s lamentations and audible questionings, hold your tongue. Be patient in your reply for he may not really care to hear your thoughts, however wise they may
be. After the time of silence, when you sense that the other has relieved himself of the thought he wished to express, you may ask “Would you like my help? Do you care to hear my thoughts? Would you like a different perspective?” Then sit tight, continue to hold your tongue. For unless the other asks for your help, give none. For any help or wisdom words you may give which are unsolicited will be lost or pushed away by the other. He will not have ears to hear. His ego nature will be quick to defend his situation and his evaluation of it to the end, for better or worse.

These same rules are for all of the Truth, Wisdom and Knowledge given by Spirit. It’s always available for the asking but unless one asks for help and listens with an open heart and head, he will not have ears to hear or eyes to see. So learn this lesson now, as the listener and the questioner. Wisdom is available and this Wisdom is a Treasure, a Golden Treasure which can only be found by the earnest seeker. Open your heart and mind to this Truth.

<![CDATA[Want-to-know]]>Sun, 08 Nov 2015 22:21:17 GMThttp://www.debraclemente.com/excerpts/want-to-knowAre you prompted by your intuition to pick up something, which seems quite random, as you head out the door? Go ahead and do it. Just do it. Why not? No harm done. Then wait and see, for you will, be assured you will. You will find the reason you were prompted into such action. Someone may ask for it or see it in your possession and say “Hey, that’s just what I needed. I’m so glad you had it here now!”

That’s the way it works when a thought comes to you. It’s always in your best interest to act on it. If you don’t, well you don’t. You have free will of course; no one will make you or punish you. You just might find it rewarding to follow such direction. These are the simple pleasures of a life that flows naturally. Your intuition is your inner knowing which arises to your consciousness as the need presents. This inner knowing part of you, is your Higher-Self, the God part of you, which knows all and sees all.

It is not for any of us to know all, now or ever in the physical form, as we are not capable or built to know, handle or assimilate such information. But we can handle it and are meant to receive piece by piece. This information is strictly given to us on a need-to-know and want-to-know basis. If you have no need to know or believe you cannot know, this will be “the truth” for you. If you have a need to know and a desire to know, it will be there for you to know in a most timely fashion.

So watch your words. Listen to the message you tell your “Higher Self.” When you say “I can’t find this or that.” or “I don’t know.” or “I’m lost.” or “I’m overwhelmed.” Your Higher-Self sits back and quietly watches you stumble around blindly and will not and cannot interfere. But if you change your words and thus your thoughts and open your mind to the possibility of knowing, you set your Higher-Self in action to communicate such wisdom.

<![CDATA[Your finest hour]]>Sun, 08 Nov 2015 22:09:49 GMThttp://www.debraclemente.com/excerpts/your-finest-hourPictureArt by Debra Clemente
There is a “body” of information here at your disposal. Use it well, do not easily dispose of truths you do not yet understand. Not to be taken lightly, to be contemplated at your finest hour. When is your finest hour? The hour you give to Me and sit with Me quietly. A continual conversation We shall have you, and Me, so quietly.

I lie in wait watching your unrest. I do not give you life as a test but as a gift you are given, the chance to explore and to this world I have created, you to adore. All is here. All is now. Come sit with Me and I will tell you how. Such a joy it is to have you with Me. My Heart glows brighter because of you.

<![CDATA[Full Allowance]]>Sun, 08 Nov 2015 21:42:39 GMThttp://www.debraclemente.com/excerpts/full-allowanceJesus was a personality. Christ is the “Truth.” The Truth, the Light, the Way we are to follow. Christ said, “Believe unto Me and I will set you free.” This is the Christ speaking. God fully manifest in man. Inviting all to follow in his footsteps to do as he had done, to do as he proved could be done with the allowing, full allowance, of God’s Divine Love and Holy Spirit to flow within.

<![CDATA[Water the Flowers]]>Sun, 08 Nov 2015 21:36:41 GMThttp://www.debraclemente.com/excerpts/water-the-flowersPictureDetail of the painting "Iris Walk" by Debra Clemente.
Stop digging, stop digging a hole for you to crawl into and hide from life. It is time for you to rise up. Lift your face unto the sunshine. Sunshine is My gift to you which brings sunshine unto your heart. Plant Me a garden ,will you please? A most beautiful fragrant colorful garden in your mind. Water it with My love each day. Pull the weeds away. Toss the thoughts you do not desire to live in your garden to the side. Water them no more. Without your attention, uprooted from their existence in your being, they can live no more.

Water the flowers. Sit with them. Admire them. Drink in their fragrance. I will bring you rain. I will bring you sunshine. My love is the fertile soil in which your garden will grow. Lovely it will be. So bountiful others will see and admire it so, for you can not help but show the colors of your mind radiating out into the world from your soul, your love-filled heart. Plant a garden in My name. This is what you have wanted to know. This is what is your destiny to show. Grow with it. Live with it. My love becomes you, unites us as One.

<![CDATA[A Warm Heart]]>Tue, 27 Oct 2015 22:24:40 GMThttp://www.debraclemente.com/excerpts/a-warm-heartPicture
When you listen to your heart, amazing things happen. I’m not speaking of the heart which beats within your body. I speak of your true heart, the pulse of life within your being that is you, that has always been you and will continue to be you after your bodily heart makes its last beat. Your heart knows all, for your heart is All. All wisdom, all joy, all peace, all love.

People are not always going to be nice to you. Their words will not always be kind. It is for you to remember that it is their business not yours. Your business is what you think and what you feel. It’s up to you how you act. Let every action of yours be heartfelt, instinctively good, kind, wise and joyful. Let this, your heart, be the well spring of your action and get not caught in the trap of a reactive life. For that is what reaction is, a trap. Someone acts unto you and you re-act the act unto them.  

The truth of you, your heart being, is beyond all that, not dependent on another’s actions for its own actions. When one is living in a reactive mode of life, life swings on a heavy pendulum, swaying back and forth with the weight of public opinion. It’s really good when it’s good and really bad when it’s bad and you never know what you will get or give.

A reactive being is nice to those that are nice, and nasty to those that are nasty. They do not live consciously. Those who are awake, living with an enlightened consciousness, understand that they have a choice of how they show up in this world. And that no matter the words or actions of another, they can choose to act from the goodness of their heart continually. The interesting thing is that such loving action is so calming and passive that it seems to defuse the raging energy of another, for all fires need fuel and without such shall eventually die.

A warm heart exudes another kind of fire; the radiant passion of joy which has an equal power to ignite the fires of joy and love in another’s heart which, before your encounter, may have been just embers awaiting a burst of love to again ignite the flame. So is the power of Love. The power we each hold in our hearts, ready and available to use as we will freely. This is always our choice, not a mandate or a God command. A choice of will, by our own free will we can choose this way of life. Living heart centered is living God centered. It is choosing the will of God, the constant good over the reactive.

<![CDATA[Rise up to the Occasion]]>Tue, 27 Oct 2015 21:58:14 GMThttp://www.debraclemente.com/excerpts/rise-up-to-the-occasionPicture
Your patience is appreciated. It is up to each to find his own joy. It will remain hidden until sought. No other can uncover another’s personal joy. You can show another your joy and you can share your joy, but it is up to each to find his own joy, his own light within which illumines his personal path. To behold his own “Divine essence” is each individual’s divine destiny.

Rise above your sense consciousness. You are so above it all. No matter what they say, no harm is done to you. For you know the truth of your being. Your highest nature prevails, always the victor in Christ. Your being rises to the occasion. The Christ is not above or beyond you, but with you, within all for the asking, for the knowing. Rise up for the occasion.

<![CDATA[Knoweth]]>Tue, 27 Oct 2015 21:46:34 GMThttp://www.debraclemente.com/excerpts/knowethPicture
Man has been given a mind, an incredibly powerful mind to use as he wishes. This mind is so powerful; it can build and destroy his world. His word is his command, but he knoweth it not. Man doth hardly know the power of his very word. The very mind which he considers to be his greatest asset is the great barrier he must cross to discover his truest glory, his one in being with his Creator, Divine Mind which knoweth all. All true wisdom is within reach, just beyond the simple mind of man. Yes, as great as the mind of man is, the Truth is beyond man’s mind, all to be known when man can lay aside himself, what he knows, what he thinks and just is, is one with All, as a being, not a doer, not a thinker, but a floater, flowing along the stream of life. The current is strong and yet peaceful. Ride the wave, the energy wave of all creation.
