Encouragement/ Motivational Poems – How To Learn To Learn


I wrote many motivational poems for myself whilst I was living with very severe Myalgic Encephalomyelitis.

I set out to learn many things in order to survive and keep my sanity!

How to learn ANYTHING!

Over the years, I realised that there are various qualities that are needed WHATEVER we are learning which make the process of learning ANYTHING much easier.

I dictated various poems and divided them up to identify the different stages and attitudes necessary for learning. On the following pages, I share a few of these motivational poems and some thoughts to accompany them.

Content List for these pages of Encouragment / Motivational Poems:

SUBMIT a poem or story that motivates you – yours or someone elses (if you have permission)

Apart from the list above, there are many other attitudes I identified that help us learn to learn.

The poems are accompanied by spiritual inspiration quotes from A Course in Miracles or The Bible. Use these if you find them helpful.

Learning when living with chronic illness

One of the challenges for emotional health when living with chronic illness is the lack of affirmation from the world that we are learning something of value.
Perhaps if someone asks "What do you do?" and you are no longer well enough to have a job, you struggle to answer.

You may even answer "I don't do anything really".

However, if you are living with illness, or exploring the spiritual journey you are probably learning many things. Here are some examples.

I am learning to rest.

I am learning to be more comfortable with emotions which I label as negative emotions.

I am learning positive self talk.

I am learning to let God love me.

I am learning to ask for the help I need.

I am learning to be comfortable with silence.

You may also be making a commitment to the application of self help techniques or spiritual practice.

You may be learning how to do EFT or qigong

You may be learning how to meditate.

Goal setting

So, think of your current goal:

What do you want to learn right now? 


What are you already setting out to learn right now?

Have your goal in mind as you read through the next pages.

Where appropriate, substitute your goal for the example I have given.

I have felt very encouraged and motivated whilst writing these pages I hope some of the same motivation transfers itself to you!

Be encouraged. 
Happy learning.

"One thing that struck me was the stripping of ego in the work. Most of us have a comfy ego façade, but weakness and disease tore Katherine’s away. The poems in Be Loved Beloved come from the heart."
