Some things you do “in vain”
Acting from pure vanity.
You do this without knowing
The thought of separation is insanity.
By thinking of your beauty
The differences appear
“You are more pretty than the next”
Is what you long to hear.
But beauty’s just a fleeting thing.
It means nothing at all.
For inside’s where you’re all the same.
From this beauty you can’t fall.
Why focus on your separation,
When inside you’re all the same?
So beautiful it blinds the eye…
This light is love by any name.
Try not so hard to stand apart.
Try instead to feel connected.
As you seek to know your Greatness,
All your steps will be directed.
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.
