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 #152 - Your True Self

Sitting in the silence
Is the way to know yourself.
There beyond the chatter
Is a world of formless wealth.

For it’s not the things you buy
That will lead to lasting peace,
But the things you learn in silence
That will bring you great release.

So many fail to stop and sit
And seek their nature true.
And thus they never find
What to them is truly due.

For within you lies a treasure.
It’s your true and natural Self.
And this will last you far more long
Than trinkets, power, or wealth.

Your spirit is the heart of you.
Some call it just “the soul.”
It matters not which words you use,
It’s the part that makes you whole.

Honor what is at your core.
It’s why you’re here on earth.
It gives you life, it’s driven you
Since nine months before your birth.

And this vital part of you
Will be your true companion
Across the curtain you call death
When your body you abandon.

So honor it, this part of you
That’s central as can be.
For spirit’s really all you are.
You’re pure divinity.


  1. "Your spirit is the heart of you." Today's message strikes a cord within me as I struggle with downsizing to a smaller home this week. I am reminded to take time for meditation and continue to seek the wisdom that flows from "sitting in the silence." Beautiful thoughts for me as my life flows into new beginnings...

    May I remember to honor my "true self" as I make important decisions this day...

  2. What a beautiful poem that flows so nicely. I really like the line, "For it's not the things you buy that will lead to lasting peace." A good message to remember at Christmas time.

    We can collect all the furnishings and goods we want but the happiness we seek is a treasure we find from within. Our "spirit" is our heart and soul and we need to honor our true essence.

    "But the things you learn in silence will bring you great relief". I love this line because silence is so powerful and often more effective than words...
