Humility – yes, a virtue
When you check your pride.
The need to feel more important
Is something you can’t hide.
Pride comes when you do feel
Your separation from your brothers
Thinking you are somehow best
In how you relate to others.
It may be in the things you buy
Or how you clothe yourself,
The power you acquire
Or how you amass your wealth.
“Look at me,” you want to shout,
“I’m better than the rest.”
But these words they only prove
That you have failed your inner test.
For inside all are just the same,
There where things they matter not.
Inside where love and spirit reign –
That’s the true treasure you have got.
Your desire to spend more money
Buying things that make you “feel”
Only masks what lies inside you,
Where only love is real.
But don’t feel bad for lapses.
You’re only human, as they say.
But that’s exactly why we tell you
That you should always stop to pray.
In prayer you do remember
That separation is illusion.
It’s there you learn the ego’s tricks
And sort out the confusion.
So love yourself – the parts that splurge
And think you need to spend.
But know it’s just a fantasy
That prayer will help to mend.
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.
