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 #364 - Finding Peace

From the Catskills, New York

Illusive for some.
Wondering …
When will peace come?

Peace does not “come.”
It lies always there.
A gift quite special
When the ego you spare.

It’s the ego that rushes,
The ego that worries,
The ego that stresses
That here and there scurries.

But there deep inside you
Is the part that is calm,
Waiting to comfort
Like a warm, soothing balm.

You can’t feel its presence
When to ego you listen.
But set ego aside,
And lo, how Spirit does glisten!

Therein lies the peace …
Resting on Spirit’s wings—
Calling out to you …
Like the angels it sings.

If peace you desire,
If happiness is your goal,
Say goodbye to the ego
And welcome your Soul.


  1. Let go of ego and seek peace within where Spirit resides. The Council of Poets has reminded me of this truth so many times, but it is said anew and with fresh images again today. One of my most difficult lessons to learn...let go of ego.

    On to enjoying the "peace that passes all understanding" today as I release ego and move on to "welcoming my Soul"...

  2. Oh, I love this poem. It's so beautiful...

    If we want to feel peace now, we must "say goodbye to the ego and welcome our soul."

    The "soul" is our sunlight, the "balm" that opens our "wings" and when we let go of our ego, our hearts will sing..
