“Be in this world, but not of it.”
Wise words which you should know.
When truly them you understand,
Then with Spirit do you go.
For yes, in flesh you walk.
But flesh is just your wrapping.
If you do think it’s all you are,
Then your flesh your spirit’s trapping.
The body serves to slow you down.
It hides your essence true.
If you never stop to go within,
You never meet the Real You.
Inside you are pure spirit –
Pure consciousness and love,
Connected to the All That Is
As below, just as above.
Yes, you’re in this world
And here you must live,
But your life here lasts not forever
So some deep thought please do give.
Be not mired in thoughts
Of material things.
Keep your thoughts oft on God
And the love that God brings.
Then you can know
What does mean this wise phrase
When in this world but not of it
You live out your days.
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.
