Doorway

What emotion grips us sometimes

Sneaking up on us without rhythm or rhyme

A feeling of empty deep in your soul

A longing to fill up a big empty hole

 

Regardless of study awareness and grace

It comes upon you and fills up your space

Sometimes pointing to a specific cause

Sometimes coming from what once was

 

So as you sit in the sadness that is

Try to send it away it’s not your biz

Forget it won’t happen can’t chase it away

Can’t rush or ignore or distract by some play

 

The longing has lessons if you pay attention

It comes with a voice giving you direction

Listen quietly to the whisper inside

The voice is your friend ally and guide

 

Take heed the direction it asks you to take

Honor the message wrapped up in heartache

Trust the reality go deep explore

Follow the depth that leads to a door

 

What is the sadness you are experiencing at the present time?

When you are quiet what is the voice inside the sadness saying to you?

Is there action you need to take or stop?

Is there a relationship that needs healing or attention?

What will make you whole?

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.
