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 #268 - On Courage

Bravery …
Going beyond your fears.
Having the courage to face your extinction
Before you have lived all your years.

We do not wish to denigrate
Those whom you tend to call brave,
But courage would come to all
If you knew there was nothing to save.

For death is not as you think it.
It’s merely a change of your state.
If you think death’s a permanent ending,
Then of course you would fear such a fate.

But what if you truly did know
That your awareness does go on forever?
Would there be any need then for courage?
No, you’d be brave for sure come whatever.

To live life without fear now seems hard,
But quite possible it surely can be
Once you understand completely your nature
And come to terms with your true destiny.

Your heroes are real, for they conquer their fears.
But our message is different than this.
There’d be no need for heroes at all
If you knew you were destined for bliss.


  1. A fear of death can bring fear while living. The spirit world today reassures us that we should not fear death, and we are therefore free to live our lives with zest and vitality. "For death is not as you think it. It's merely a change of your state."

    On to living life fearlessly today as we send out the love...

  2. Facing our extinction and learning not to fear death seems like a lifelong process...

    The theme of "Courage" is so important because many of us think about death and what it's like to transition into the afterlife...
