I AM GOOD

Look!


Iris Garden - by Debra Clemente

All nature is all the same.
Without the attention each requires to live,
each will die away.

Stop watering your weeds.
You need not to even stoop to pull them.
Instead water the garden of your mind with beautiful thoughts.
You will be rewarded with a plethora of colorful everlasting blossoms.

What you had perceived as weeds will wither away.
Forgotten, they are gone.
Whatever you think about lives on.

Look what you have done.
See what you have created.
Count it all good!

Debra Clemente

Give it up!

Love told me today...

Give it up.
All those notions which have held you back.
Release them all.

You can not tear anything away which you do not want.
You can not push, scratch or yell it away.

You can only let it fall away.
Die out.
Wither from inattention.

Stop noticing what bothers you.
Stop talking about what you do not like.
Think of what brings a smile.
You are so pretty when you smile and the world is pretty too.

Debra Clemente

I have such good help

I don't have to go "look it up" and read somewhere what to do in any moment of my life. Why? Because I have such amazing help already online. When I stay connected to source I get all the help I ask for. Oh yes, and I ask for help constantly and I ask knowing I will receive.

From whom? My helpers. My team. My family of spiritual beings with soul standings higher than my own. They lift me up. They guide me. Nameless they remain to me. What's in a name anyway? All I know is that it is all love. The purest and the highest. Within my reach. At hand. Ready to help. All they ask from me is a grateful heart.

It pleases them so to know that I want their help, to know that I believe. That I believe in better. That I can see and know Good which is God.

These helpers can not and do not make me do a thing, but they can pave the way. The way for me and my dreams. They remind me. They remind me of my goals. They remind me of my purpose. They prepare and present golden opportunities for me to act. To act in accord with the direction of my dreams.

Do I see them? No, not yet. Maybe someday I will. When I want to. I have never asked.

I have learned from reading the writings of others about spiritual guides that these guides have rules to follow when it comes to their interaction with mankind. They can not interfere in our lives or act against our will. These "special forces" love us and watch over us and want so much to be of assistance. We have been told "Ask and you shall receive." I believe this is part of that truth.

We only get what we ask for.
Ask for more.
Ask for better.
Ask for help.
And give thanks for all.

Is anybody Listening?

This thought just came to me. At first I thought it was my own as I write and post on this blog for myself and seemingly few others have found it. But then I heard it again. No, it wasn't my voice. It was God's. He has been speaking to each of us for eternity, yet so few hear his voice or heed his words.
He asked again.
           Is anybody listening?

          I replied.
Here I am God. It is I. How can I serve?

Others who know, celebrate and share

It's so wonderful to know other that so many others hear and heed the voice of the one true spirit. We each have found our own way but arrive at the same knowing. A knowing of the deep peace, flowing contentment, and safety of God's ever lasting Divine love. The experience is so worth sharing, as it is intended that this be so.

Sooo worth sharing.

I know this

but it feels so good to hear it again.

Anything Is Possible



If there was ever a time to dare,
to make a difference,
to embark on something worth doing,
IT IS NOW.

Not for any grand cause, necessarily. . .
but for something that tugs at your heart,
something that's your inspiration,
something that's your dream.


You owe it to yourself
to make your days here count.
HAVE FUN.

DIG DEEP.
STRETCH.
DREAM BIG.


Know, though, that things worth doing
seldom come easy.
There will be good days.
And there will be bad days.
There will be times when you want to turn around,
pack it up,
and call it quits.

Those times tell you
that you are pushing yourself,
that you are not afraid to learn by trying.
PERSIST.


Because with an idea,
determination,
and the right tools,
you can do great things.


Let your instincts,
your intellect,
and your heart,
guide you.


TRUST.
Believe in the incredible power of the human mind.
Of doing something that makes a difference.
Of working hard.
Of laughing and hoping.
Of lazy afternoons.
Of lasting friends.
Of all the things that will cross your path this year.


The start of something new
brings the hope of something great,
ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE

Accept your POWER

THE POWER OF YOUR WORDS
accept responsibility

Against the Wind



This video so tugs at my heart.
There is a lesson here.
Life gives us opportunites to learn a new lesson each day.
Pick yourself up.
Shake the dust from your feathers and march on.

With Much Love,
Deb

A Happy Sunday Sermon

Searching for web links to other's whom believe God's ultimate desire for us is to be happy, I found this lovely sermon outline.

Have a happy day. God in truth, wants you to live life this way.

http://www.expositorysermonoutlines.com/christian/god-wants-you-happy.pdf

God Wants You Happy

Yes, I know and now this truth is the title of a recently published book written by a Catholic Priest.

I haven't read it but I have received the message. Unfortunately, not from the Church from which I belong, but on my own. As many Sundays as I have sat, stood and knelt in the pews of "The Church" this was never the message I received. I had to step back, pull away and seek inside to receive this message directly. I sincerely give thanks to Father Jonathan Morris for stepping up and speaking out the truth of God that needs to be heard.

God Wants You Happy: From Self-Help to God's Help

May this book reveal to many, the many blessings God has in store for each of us.

Let your lives speak.

Illuminations from our Quaker Friends:

And it is especially to be observed, that in the whole New Testament there is no order nor command given in this thing, but to follow the revelation of the Spirit, save only that general one of meeting together; a thing dearly owned and diligently practised by us…

Robert Barclay, Apology, 1676, 11:10
http://pacificyearlymeeting.org/fp/pymfp2001pg017.html

Commitment to truth requires authenticity and veracity in following one’s conscience, illuminated by the Inner Light. When we depart from truth, we separate ourselves from God. Integrity is not simply a habit of speech, but a way of life increasingly aligned with God’s will. http://pacificyearlymeeting.org/fp/pymfp2001pg025.html

The way she said it.

I like the way this wise woman writes in her blog of her father five years after his passing. I feel the same for own father who passed on to higher and greener pastures some 8 and a half years ago. I talk to him all the time and feel closer than ever to him. He remains so close to my heart. For this I give thanks.
My one comfort that I hope to be able to share with our children is that with his passing on, we can now speak to him all the time, at any time. We may not be able to hear his reply, but we can be assured of his hearing us and praying for us. In this way, he is more present to us now than he was in life. God rest his soul.

Thoreau Thoughts

Goodness is the only investment that never fails.

If you would convince a man that he does wrong, do right. But do not care to convince him. Men will believe what they see. Let them see.

Men are born to succeed, not fail.

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.

Every man is the builder of a temple called his body.

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you've imagined. As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler.

Public opinion is a weak tyrant compared with our own private opinion. What a man thinks of himself, that is which determines, or rather indicates, his fate.

Man is the artificer of his own happiness.
 
There is no remedy for love but to love more.

Henry David Thoreau
US Transcendentalist author (1817 - 1862)
