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 #101 - Where the Answers Lie

Since the dawning of time
Man has searched for meaning.
Many hours has he spent.
The truths of life thus gleaning.

Many have turned to the stars
Thinking there they’d find
The key to understanding
The mysteries of the mind.

But looking outward does no good.
For the truth there does not hide.
The mysteries of the life you see
Are tucked away inside.

Ask your questions to your Self
And not to some far stranger.
For inside you do hold great wealth.
Inside there lies no danger.

It’s in the soul where you do make
The link with your true Source.
By sitting in the silence
You can feel this mighty force.

A question posed deliberately
Will find a true reply.
For no question goes unanswered
Nothing does your Self deny.

If all knew that in the quiet
They’d find guidance for their life
They’d find their days would pass with ease
With little stress or strife.

The reason for the silence
Is to quiet all the noise.
For through the chatter you can’t hear
The One who brings your joys.

He waits for you to come to Him.
You’ll find Him through your mind.
A treasure waiting for you.
The greatest of its kind.


  1. Ode to meditation. Quiet, hmmmm made me remember this, "Madness does not always howl. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "Hey, is there room in your head for one more?"

  2. A beautiful reminder again today to stop and meditate. The answers to our life questions lie within...be quiet and listen. I find comfort in the lines, "A question posed deliberately will find a true reply."

    On to prayers and meditation and posing deliberate questions...

  3. I love the beat of this poem. It flows like a nursery rhyme. Finding time to be silent can help us find the answers we need."the reason for the silence is to quiet all the noise". We can hear the unspoken that lies deep inside.By staying in the moment we can feel and embrace our true nature...

  4. Meditation sent me over here this morning. I asked for a number of a poem to read from The Council of Poets. #101...and here I am. All the answers to my questions lie within. Sit in the silence and ask. I love it!

    On to remembering "where the answers lie" today and always...
