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 #188 - Who You Really Are

True beauty lies not in a lash ...
A finely painted face.
The beauty of the human soul
Is the same in every case.

You tend to think you’re different,
Separated by your skin.
But, in truth, you all are One.
The Spirit lies within.

No distance does divide you,
For God is what you are –
Pure consciousness in human form,
Right here, not outside/afar.

The ego makes you think of “I”
When this is not so true.
If you would just surrender “I”
You’d find the holy You.

Fear not that you will show conceit
By worshipping your Self.
In blessing who you truly are
Do you discover wealth.

We speak now not in terms of gold,
But riches beyond measure.
For when you realize Who You Are
You’ve found life’s greatest treasure.


  1. "But, in truth, you all are One." Quite a strong theme of "oneness" is again apparent this morning from the Council of Poets. Look within to find God and beauty and love. "For God is what you are -"

    May we remember to worship the Spirit within as we walk our paths in love today...

  2. The theme continues. Our wealth comes from within and monetary wealth will not measure or guarantee happiness.

    I like the way this poem begins,"Beauty lies not in a lash.. a finely painted face."

    Beauty lies in the eye of the beholder and our differences do not determine who we are. We all have the potential to be happy and learning to love ourselves and love who we are is part of this inward journey..
