Affirmative Poetry does not mean that you have to become a poet – or ever create a finished poem.
- Your form of Affirmative Poetry may be more in the vein of “poetic expression” – fun, fresh, interesting, creative or beautiful words.
- The issue is not to “become a poet”, but to go to the place where poetry lies. To learn how to make yourself receptive – to be a channel for Spirit. I am not a brilliant poet, though some of the stuff that comes through me is kind of brilliant. It’s just that in the area of poetry I have pretty much learned how to surrender to Spirit. It’s the most spiritual experience i have, is to be taken over by something bigger and better than me.
