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 #354 - There Inside You

From Jamestown, North Dakota

In a world of pain and suffering,
You might ask, “Why am I here?”
The answer is quite basic:
To be that which you hold most dear.

What is it that you treasure?
What brings your greatest joy?
The Force that dwells inside you …
The greatest tool you can employ.

It’s love that lives there in you.
It’s love that all do seek.
So why is it of emptiness
That so many often speak?

They suffer for they fail to see
They are the source of what they lack.
And with this misperception
Their fellow man they do attack.

Your purpose, then, is simple—
To uncover all the lies …
To bring forth what lies hidden
And expose it to the skies.

Be the shining light you are—
A beacon that pours forth
The love that’s always been there
Like a compass pointing north.

Shine brightly, do not seek the light,
For love and light is what you are.
You need not look outside yourself;
You are the Great North Star.

  1. Beautiful and effective images this morning with the skies, the shining light, the compass, the beacon, and the Great North Star. The message is clear...look within ourselves for love where Spirit dwells. Be the light of the world. "Be the shining light you are--"

    On to sending forth light and love to all...
