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.

Poem #366 - Rise Above the Ego

From Saunderstown, Rhode Island

Guidance comes
In answer to a prayer.
Where once was desperation,
Now hope is there …


Do not get mired
In the mud of your own fears.
For this leads you down a path
That can only end in tears.

Lift your thoughts and rise—
Rise above the ego’s grasp
That holds you down and suffocates,
Leaving you to gasp.

The ego holds no power.
On your weakness it relies.
When, in truth, this weakness
Is one of ego’s lies.

The Real You is strong and powerful.
Your power comes from your true Being
But blinded by the ego,
Your great power you’re not seeing.

Remove the mask that blinds you
And see with brand new sight.
That all you seek and all you are
Lies there within your Light.


  1. Letting go of "ego" has become a regular theme...

    This poem is uplifting and that's just what I needed today. "Don't get mired in the mud of your own fears."

    It's important to stay positive and not let our fears engulf our strength...

  2. Seek guidance and it will come to us. Let go of ego and remember who we are...we are Love, and we are Spirit. Powerful images of the mud on the path, gasping for breath, and the mask causing blinded sight...and, of course, the amazing Light.

    On to seeking guidance through prayer and meditation, with hope in our hearts, as we continue to send out the love today...
