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 #238 - Pride

Swallow your pride.
What good does it do you?
Let all feelings of ego
Simply pass right on through you.

Your pride serves no purpose
But to set you apart,
When all are the same
There inside in the heart.

Why strive to be different
When in seeing your link,
You’ll find you’re more peaceful
Than you’d ever dare think.

With pride comes a fall
When the truth you do learn
That no one is better
When to God you return.

So start living now
As if you had no hard shell.
Let all see your essence
May your words this please tell:

That love is the reason
You came to exist.
So try not to stand out
But see love – don’t resist.

If in others you meet
You see not the same trait,
Know that in sending them love,
You’ll see change, just you wait.

  1. "Swallow your pride. What good does it do you?" We are reminded this morning to let go of ego and seek our "sameness" with other people. Pride only serves to separate us, but love (our true essence) connects us all through Spirit.

    May our love shine brightly this day, and may it help to bring healing in our world...
