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 #102 - The Nature of the Soul

Corruption and vice
Are Earthly sins
Who knows at what point
The sinning begins?

It comes from the Earth
From things man does learn.
When greed, lust, and power
Are for what he does yearn.

A baby has nothing
But goodness inside.
There in its soul
Love and pureness reside.

But things start to change
When he does interact
With souls that are hardened.
This you know as a fact.

Evil is learned,
For the soul holds no malice.
When pure at one’s birth
It holds love like a chalice.

But as one grows older
The love it does tarnish.
Like well-polished wood
It loses its varnish.

But what is once lost
Can be surely regained.
There’s hope and redemption
For lives filled with pain.

These come when you realize
Your reason for living
For giving up wanting
And to others giving.

There’s no instant forgiveness.
You reap what you sow.
By with each loving act
True forgiveness you know.

All can instantly change
When this truth they do know:
Your purpose in life
Is to love and to grow.


  1. "You reap what you sow..." The Council of Poets got right to the point today in telling us how to live our lives. People are not born evil...it is a learned behavior...and it can be changed. Forget "greed, lust, and power," and move on to helping, forgiving, and loving. "Your purpose in life is to love and to grow."

    Effective comparisons in today's words... I especially liked the baby's soul holding "love like a chalice."

    May we all feel the love, give the love, and grow today...

  2. Wow, What a poem. Our desires and actions can create love and beauty or it can be a vice. Positive thoughts can create positive words.Our values can become positive habits."your reason for living is for giving up wanting and to others giving." Our values and deeds become our destiny...

  3. Appropriate words for what someone I love is facing this weekend. I take great comfort in their message. I will carry these words along with me and do my best to give love and help deliver the message.
