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 #240 - On Pride

Humility -
A virtue true.
Having tempered pride
In all things that you do.

While it’s good to be pleased
When success you achieve,
Thoughts of your greatness
You’re best just to leave.

For nothing is served
By being better than most,
Except when pure thoughts
In your mind you do host.

It is true each has talents,
And these you should use.
But when others you best,
Please humility use.

For no one is more special.
You are all God’s one child.
On no one more than others
Has the Great Spirit smiled.

If pride you must show,
Then of this one fact be proud:
You are all blessed with Life.
This you should freely shout loud.

For Life shows no favorites.
It knows only “being.”
Unique, yes, but not special,
When with spirit eyes seeing.

Go forth and rejoice
In your uniqueness and skills
But treasure all Life
Which God’s love truly fills.

  1. "You are all God's one child." What a beautiful expression of the "oneness" theme. We are all unique human beings with our own special talents, but we are linked by spirit...always. Rejoice and serve in love, knowing each human being is special, but no more special than any other.

    May we celebrate our uniqueness and our "oneness" today...
