About the Poetry

All of the poems in this blog are spirit-inspired. Every word came to me each day for a full year while in deep meditation. I simply wrote what I heard onto a pad of paper in my lap with eyes closed – meaningful, multi-stanza verses in mere minutes. I was unaware of each poem’s theme until I transcribed it later word for word. Each day brought new and wondrous discoveries about the world beyond our five physical senses, incredible wisdom, and messages of hope which I share with you in this blog. The last poems received are displayed below on this page, but the entire collection of 365+ poems are archived here in the left-hand column. You can search by topic or keyword using the search box in the upper left corner. May you find among them just the right message which speaks to your heart.

Poem #61 - As Close as Your Heart

Give up your tireless efforts
Find the peace
The great release
That comes when you turn your eye
Not toward the sky,
But deep inside

How often do you stop and rest
And put your faith to the test
For there you’ll find
Peace of mind

Come now and sit with me
Beneath a tree
Rest a while
Let me see you smile
It’s your due
Yet nothing new

Harken back to younger days
When joy and laughter filled your ways
Recreate this now
You know how

Just relax and sit a spell
Do this now and time will tell
A different tale
Of how to succeed and never fail

For greater effort brings not success
Less is more and more is less
When there’s faith and when there’s trust
You must do well – succeed you must

If this seems counter to what you know
See just how far you truly go
When all your might you do bestow
Upon a wall – how far does it go?

The greater the effort, the more the might
The harder you work to make things right
The more you need to stop and rest
In this way you fail the test

For when you know your own true strength
You can go to any length
With nothing but the greatest ease
Pay attention, know this, please

All the power you’ll ever need
To take on any task or deed
Rests inside you night and day
Look inside and find the way

For you are God and God is you
To some it’s strange, but trust that it’s true
Fashioned in His image you are
So look inside, look not afar

Closely as your sight can get
Look closer still and know that yet
God is as close as your eyes can see
For He’s in every cell that’s free

Beating as your heart does beat
With every pulse His voice does repeat
And knowing this you can release
All your stress and find true peace


  1. "Look inside and find the way." Today's message speaks to each of us beautifully. Letting go of stress and finding true peace is something we all desire, but it is never easy. Obviously, the Spirit World knows us well. We are one with the Divine..."so look inside, look not afar."

  2. Poetry and this poem have moved up the ladder. More complex thought, more philosophical questioning, much better structure. I find myself wanting a period (.) to end thought, rather the complexity of no stop. I am sure punctuation isn't provided to you but inserted by you. Comma's are inconsistent and periods nonexistent. I realize that this is automatic writing and you don't have a background in poetry. The penultimate line is an eye grabber as is the line, "Less is more and more is less".
