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 #335 - Mind and Body

From Ogden, Utah

Body and mind
Are inextricably linked.
The body reflects
How your mind it does think.

But this goes both ways
For when the body’s not well,
Then thinking is muddled.
Good from bad’s hard to tell.

Be on guard not to fall
In this treacherous trap.
Where thoughts create illness
And your vitality sap.

From there things can spiral
For it’s hard to get up
Once the body does drink
From this poisonous cup.

Focus not on the body
But always on the mind.
For by habit on problems
In your body you’ll find.

But by placing your thoughts
In that positive place
Then far fewer symptoms
Of body you’ll face.

Know that in truth you are spirit
And spirit knows not of ills
And once this you’ve learned
You’ll look far less for pills.


  1. Breathe deeply and know that we are spirit...not just the human body. Transcend the flesh and know that Spirit is our essence. "Know that in truth you are spirit and spirit knows not of ills." Blessed words today from the Council of Poets...

    May we remember who we are today...

  2. Interesting poem. Particularly useful for those who rely on medication or alcohol for stability and peace of mind.

    "Body and mind are inextricably linked. Positive thinking can be like a vessel because it moves us to a better place and allows light to filter through the negativity...

    A good poem for anyone desiring change...
