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 #84 - The Brain vs. the Mind

You think the mind is in the brain
But there it does not live
The brain is but an instrument
Good service does it give.

It takes the many inputs
That come in through the sense.
But it’s the mind that takes the cues
And deals with them thus hence.

The mind’s the part that never dies.
It’s with you for all time.
Hand in hand with spirit
Up the ladder it does climb.

Revere the thoughts you hear inside
For each one helps you grow.
But which are yours and which are ours
Not always will you know.

For us the mind’s a mighty tool
A way that we can reach you.
It’s through the mind we contact you
We guide you and we teach you.

So dull the brain with wine and pills
If at times you feel the need
But know that in so doing
Our thoughts you cannot heed.

But never fear; we’re always here
Awaiting times you’re sharp.
And then, dear ones, we’ll work with you
Like fingers on a harp.


  1. I have felt the strong and consistent "whisperings" from the World of Spirit all week. With gratitude I read the lines, "The mind's the part that never dies. It's with you for all time." Thank you, Council of Poets, for another message of comfort and hope!

  2. I love your poetry and this one is perfect. The mind is lead by the light of your spirit, the brighter the light-the more the mind can see!
    Thanks for being here,
    Mike Keller

  3. Thanks to both of you for your comments. I still don't feel as if this is "my" poetry in the slightest, for I don't plan them, and when I go back to read them, I have no recollection of having written them. I simply feel blessed and in awe of this experience every day, and the experience is made all the more wonderful in having others to share it with.
