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.

Poem #70 - On Duality

What a strong presence I felt today! And totally new ...

Years ago when you were young
All your days were aimed at fun
You played and ran under the sun
Unaware of what had begun

But deep inside there grew a seed
And as it grew there came a need
A need to know the source of life
And why a man does need a wife

For as a one becomes a pair
There is a kind of longing there
An urge to mate and procreate
Yes, that much is true
But it’s much more than that, dear ones
Of which we speak to you

In all of life there’s this and that
There’s young and old, and thin and fat
There’s cold and hot,
Have and have not
All opposites of different poles
Which put together do form wholes

And neither could be called complete
For with polarity, the world’s replete
And knowing this you’ll understand
Why man needs woman and woman needs man
It’s all a part of God’s great plan
Put into motion when the world began

So worry not when you are down
For somewhere close the up is found
Given time upon the ground
All the opposites come around

And what, you ask, of all this urge
For what is separate together to merge?
It is quite simple, so very clear
When the answer, you do hear

There’s only one thing, it is true
That doesn’t break up into two
And that one thing you know, of course
Of all the things it is the source

Call it God or call it Spirit,
The name it matters not
But knowing oneness as the Source,
All knowing have you got

For all the desire for two things to merge
This inner longing that for you is an urge
It comes from Spirit’s mighty pull
That all his plans you will fulfill

For when your soul it has evolved
And all the urging has resolved
Then dear ones this you can believe
The great reunion you’ll achieve

And then no poles will thus survive
No yes and no, no dead or alive
Just one in spirit, nothing left
No need of anything to be bereft

So live your days aware of this
You need the opposites to find true bliss
The ups and downs, the hot and cold
Enjoy them as you do grow old

And when you are no longer young
And many songs they have been sung
You’ll see the wisdom of His ways
Turning nights on into days

  1. What a lovely poem today! The theme of "oneness" is certainly strong. The pull of the spirit for everyone to come together...and the theme of "opposites" to make a whole. I truly love the line, "But knowing oneness as the Source, All knowing have you got." On to appreciating the opposites to find happiness...and to being "one in spirit!"

    I can't help but think of Mary Travers who died yesterday and the music of Peter, Paul, and Mary as they sang their hearts out for us to "love one another" and come together in unity.

    Looking forward to whatever this day has to hold... Thank you, Council of Poets!
