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 #319 - The Puzzle of Life

Sifting through the rubble
The damage has been done.
Recovery begins at once
When you realize all is one.

You life sometimes seems shattered –
Separate pieces spread around.
Fragments of what used to be …
Your balance can’t be found.

This is the ego acting.
It wants you not to know
That nothing’s really separate
And so illusion it does show.

As a puzzle you do see things:
One piece round and one piece square.
But there’s a sense of unity
When at the parts you look with care.

All pieces fit together.
For great symmetry exists.
The pieces do fit perfectly
Yet this tense feeling it persists.

Just know if you could only see
The puzzle put together whole,
You’d understand the part you play –
You have a valued role.

What seems at times quite scattered
Is the way the puzzle you do see.
But trust that all will come together
Just as it’s truly meant to be.

  1. Once again we are reminded to let go of ego and separation. Be at peace while knowing that all works together perfectly, and each of us is a valued piece of the whole. I love the puzzle image today that illustrates so beautifully that "all is one."

    On to trusting today "that all will come together just as it's truly meant to be."
