Is it unraveling all turning asunder

How do you think how do you wonder

What is your status amid all the plunder

Do you feel rage do you hear thunder


What are you feeling what is your perspective

Are you being thoughtful or throwing invective

What are your answers do you have solutions

Have you engaged in thoughtful resolutions


Truth needs to be told there are no answers

On the path before us we all need to be dancers

Has our leadership failed weren’t they watching

Institutions crumbled while they were carping


What are next actions where are the answers

Have those we trusted always been prancers

Bedrock solid granite the foundation assumed

All crumbled like sand grains are you amused


Take strength in your wisdom knowledge is inside

Now is the time rely on your own pride

Stay centered grounded clear on your values

Make choices take action follow your own muse


What is your current sense of the world swirling around you?

What kind of information do you pay attention to?

What informs the choices you make about your direction?

How do you protect your family, community, fortune?

How often do you step into inquiry?

Who can you rely on?

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.
