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 #322 - Slow and Steady

So many hurting souls…
Such pain they carry in their heart.
Seeking, always searching
To feel not so much apart.

They think the grand solution
Will descend in one big burst.
And so they go on seeking
As if they suffer from great thirst.

But oft there’s no one moment
In which the answer it appears.
For many of their problems
Have been building up for years.

These aren’t problems of the spirit.
For the spirit’s always whole.
It’s the false beliefs of ego
That keep humans from their soul.

Clearing out the layers
Can be a process of great length.
But it’s the knowledge of the love inside
That gives to all the strength.

The strength to clear the falsehoods –
The lies that keep all feeling less
As you open up to Spirit’s presence
Then Spirit you does bless.

This Force is always calling
Awaiting all to hear it
But it’s the dedicated effort
That allows awareness of the spirit.

Expect no “aha” moment.
Strive instead for daily peace.
Great happiness and joy await
Once old habits you release.

Work towards a slow awakening.
Enjoy the journey as you grow.
Then feel Spirit in each moment
As you allow God’s love to flow.


  1. Beautiful poem to day with encouragement to work through old habits and patterns.

    "Clearing out the layers can be a process of great length, But it's the knowledge of the love inside that gives to all the strength."

    We all have the strength to grow and the ability to feel gratitude with each passing moment...

  2. Once again this morning, we are urged by the Council of Poets to let go of ego, false beliefs, and separation to allow the love of Spirit to flow through us. We are cautioned not to look for one "aha" moment, but look for the peace and joy in each day as our souls awaken to the "oneness of all."

    On to "enjoying the journey" today...

  3. How? I read and have read all the poems and in my mind I here the word enlightenment. As the world gravitates toward a new life, I ask again How?

  4. Oh I love this one, dear spirits. How many times will we have to hear that as pure Spirit we are perfect?.....it's the ego that brings me seeming imperfection.....although the imperfections can look very real at times. Here's to seeing the God/good in all our happenings.
