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 #161 - On Challenges

Every man must face a challenge
In every cycle of his life.
For in your world of comforts
There must come some times of strife.

How you face up to the struggles
Is part of your big test,
For the one who sees these eagerly
Will rise about the rest.

It’s not that you should care
Who is good, better, and best,
But only that you meet the task
We place at your behest.

And in this way prepare yourself
For what lies beyond the curtain.
If you can handle problems here
You’ll do well beyond, for certain.

For each chapter of your life’s a phase
From which you surely learn.
Your experience in what comes next
Is what you there do earn.

The more you learn while on the earth
The greater you progress.
So that when you leave the earth
You do so with finesse.

For there are stages in our world
Just as there are in yours.
The higher you can enter here
The greater the rewards.

The higher is your frequency
With energy so fine,
The greater is the love you’ll feel
And closer to Divine.

So learn your lessons well on earth
Face each challenge with a smile,
And you will find your efforts there
Will turn out all worthwhile.


  1. Yes, Challenges. At times I wonder what life would be like without struggles and heartache. Our lives are filled with lessons and stormy events that shape our path and help us evolve. Each new day is another opportunity to grow and learn..

  2. Once again we are cautioned to "learn our lessons well on earth" because it will help us not only here but in the existence beyond. "So that when you leave the earth you do so with finesse" brings a smile since that trait doesn't come easily for me.

    On to facing challenges and learning lessons today...and, hopefully, with a certain amount of "finesse"...
