The silence is golden no chattering mind
The crazed noisy chorus has been left behind
Your mind soars to heaven the promise of bliss
As pure an expectation of your lover’s kiss

The noise that’s been dancing around your brain
The synapses connecting to play a refrain
The joy you’ve been waiting and hoping to find
Is waiting there for you to be kind

How will you know your pathway is clear
Does a clear road emerge from grins ear to ear
Is this clear channel the guide that you need
Is it heaven sent providing god speed

Does each encounter unravel a layer of dust
Can you let go of resistance with each step your trust
Can you follow your heartbeat and heed your own rhyme
Can you delay forsaking and have patience this time

The pure joy of living can quiet your mind
As yesterdays troubles recede behind
If you follow your trajectory through time and space
You will discover you’re blessed with sweet grace

You’ll arrive at your destiny unscathed and unbowed
Reaching your pinnacle far above the crowded
The brass ring you’ve been questing all of these years
Is right there just grab it let go fears and tears

How sweet is the quiet of your unchattering mind?
What do you do to quiet your noisy monkey mind?
What actions do you take that enables you to step into “observer?”
Can you consciously step into the space of quiet or does it control you?
What value might mastery over your mind bring you?

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.
