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 #248 - Ups and Downs

Weep no longer.
Shed no more tears.
There’s no valid reason
To go on mourning for years.

For loss comes to all.
It’s a part of your path.
But suffering and torment
Very quickly can pass.

It’s alright to grieve,
To expel bad emotions.
But the need to continue
Comes from all your false notions.

If you understood better
That life’s about change,
Then our advice to stop suffering
Would not seem so strange.

“This too shall pass”
Is a statement of fact.
For each passing moment
Brings a new way to act.

For nothing is static.
No pain lasts forever.
You think you’ll never recover
But you must never say never.

For just as the sun
Once again each day rises,
Around the bend in your path
Comes an array of surprises.

Do not give up hope
For the sun’s shining rays.
For a mix of sunshine and clouds
Is just part of your days.

So treasure the sun
But despair not in the clouds.
For past your tears there is hope,
Once are lifted the shrouds.


  1. "For past your tears there is hope." Comforting words for all of us today from the spirit world. We must learn to accept the "mix of sunshine and clouds" but not linger too long in mourning. Pain does not last forever unless we allow it to. Beautiful reassurances today from the Council of Poets...

    May we remember hope in adversity and enjoy the beauty of the sunshine moments today...

  2. "Nice Poem.

    So treasure the sun But despair not in the clouds."

    Expect cloudy days and do not worry over things that cannot be changed. Create something new and positive out of those things that can change...
