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 #232 - It's Up To You

Misery –
You bring it on yourself.
Don’t you see?

It’s all a matter of interpretation.
What to one is a blessing
To another’s desperation.

As a group you think alike.
“This is awful!”
“This we like.”

When each event, in itself,
Has no meaning … it simply “is.”
No “Aw shucks,” no “Gee whiz,”

All is neutral
Until upon it you do place
A frowning or a smiling face

These are ways you learned to believe
Even though your suffering
Such thoughts don’t relieve.

It’s a choice you make:
How to see
Each event in your reality.

So start today and choose quite well
Whether to live
In Heaven or Hell.

It’s up to you,
So watch your choices.
Listen to your inner voices.

Starting now, take an oath:
“I choose the best thoughts
For my growth.”

In old patterns
Do not be stuck.
Do not think all fate is luck.

It’s up to you
And how you live
When colors to your world you give.


  1. Look for the good in everything is the message for today. Even sorrow can bring happiness if we choose. Not always easy, but the spirit world reminds us this morning that we DO have a choice...and they are always near to help us. "It's a choice you make: How to see each event in your reality."

    On to living life with a smile today as I learn and grow...

  2. I like the last paragraph, "It's up to you And how you live When colors to your world you give."

    We all choose what colors to bring into our world and when we decide to make a shift from old patterns our lives become more intricate and vibrant...
