Call of the Spirit

by David Prichard
(Dallas, Texas)

Spiritual truth is simple, ineffable, ageless, and profoundly joyous. Certainly nothing I have to reveal about it is new, and words are inadequate for that purpose in any case. I hope only to use words in a new way that may provide inspiration and encouragement to those who need it on their journey.

The content of these verses represents the truth as I know it, resulting from my own experience and inner search. The reader will find it to be in the tradition of eastern mysticism, especially Advaita Vedanta as well as the writings of Meher Baba, Robert Adams, Hafiz, Rumi, and Kahlil Gibran. Eternal thanks to the teacher who revealed the essential truth to me.

A collection of my verses titled "Call of the Spirit" is available as an ebook on Amazon at

Just Be

Be what you truly are

Be Everything

Be the One

Be Love



Inconceivable, overwhelming love

Engulfed me for miraculous moments

As tears of delirious joy burst forth

Over many years the memory has faded

But deep within remains

Brilliant and forever unforgettable

Calling me on to journey’s end

With a sweet desperate yearning

That can never die

Slowly erasing all other desires

Until grace brings me home

To eternal ecstasy beyond words

Don't miss this!

Thank you for your poetry page and your poetry.
Your first poem Just Be caught me by surprise. It's small, just a few words. It's message, also is simple. We, especially in Western society look for the blaring messages and often miss the simple ones.

We give them no power because they seem so simple. Simplicity can hold great value.
In western society we put so much store in the "doing" and we've lost the "being," to our own detriment. We wear all these different hats, and we think they are who we are. Our identity is caught up in all these roles, and we forget to just be.

Revelation, I'm not going to touch. We'll just let people experience it...
