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 #143 - All Part of the Plan

Gone are the days
When you ran as a child
Rushing through fields
Like the wind, oh so wild.

Those years formed a base
For the way you are now.
With strength and with courage
They did you endow.

The past is your history,
But your future it’s not.
You’ve no way of knowing
How much time you have got.

Live only this day
Without fear, nor with worry.
All things they will come
Whether or not you do hurry.

Regard every day
As a chance to succeed.
And know that you’re blessed
As we meet every need.

Life may not always seem perfect
As you watch it unfold.
But perfection unfolds
As your body grows old.

And then comes great joy
When your body you shed
And find with delight
That you’re really not dead.

You just go on learning;
The fields they’re still there.
It’s just that in Heaven
You pass through them like air.

Yes, you do go on learning,
It’s all part of the plan
It’s the story of life
Since all time it began.

  1. So it seems I may still be running "like the wind" when I shed this old body. I have to smile at that thought. I loved today's poem from The Council of Poets. The theme of the continuity and ongoing of our learning is prominent once again. I appreciate the lines, "Live only this day, without fear, without worry"...

    On to living and learning today with love in my heart...
