What do we search for what is our longing?

A place we can rest in and feel belonging

Where we let down rest our cells

Let go of personality chill our real selves


A place we plug into center and source

Waters flow over we chart a new course

The grounding place receives our electrical rain

Comfort simplicity soothe our chattering brain


Warm familiar faces remind us there is home

Conversation connection says you’re not alone

Restful sleep heals you to the bone

Nourishment feeds longing softens existential moan


Here where words of Christ hit us deep

The feelings engendered allows tranquil sleep

So when you get restless insane in your wake

But can’t find the traction enabling your brake


Remember Jesus suggested the answer

The place to plug in and slow down disaster

“When two or more are gathered there is one”

Everywhere community holds connection and bright sun


Do you have a place where you can plug in deeply, rest, and feel home?

Who are the people who provide that?

What specifically does each one provide?

Have you recently thanked and acknowledged them?

Do they understand how valuable they are to you?

How might you inform them?

I have always been a seeker, always looking for the answers to what seekers ponder. I can remember Dr. Maxwell Maltz and Psychocybernetics; Dr. Carl Rogers On Becoming a Person. Moving through my legal training and practicing law the focus was always about people and how to better their lives. All that searching, reading, studying and introspective work culminated in this collection of daily readings for seekers.

My work in the world has progressed from fighting legal cases to mediating divorces to helping people understand the essentials of relationship and collaborating to these poems. How can we collaborate effectively and work with each other in harmony to create the world we seek. How can we mindfully enable this world to become a place that works for all.

My prayer is that through introspection using these poems as a guide we can all grow together in making the world the Heaven on Earth we all aspire toward.
