Glowing warm syrup flowing within

Quiet clear mind no chatter or chagrin

Hearing the silence of black empty space

No longer concerned about running “their” race


Sweet serene presence calming and pure

Heart body mind aligned to ensure

Essence embracing those that you hold

This daily giving never gets old


Your only longing to give and take care

Sharing what’s inside and how you got here

Making sure family sleeps peaceful sleep

Drying teardrops before they become a weep


The perch you alight on has quiet perspective

It did not come from an outer directive

Its source is the wisdom locked in your soul

Pushing to the surface as time took its toll


Your peace comes from knowing just who you are

Where you fit in and how you star

A sense of integrity down to the bone

Out in a crowd in silence alone


How would you describe the essence that’s you?

How would your best friends describe it?

Have you ever thought about designing your work around the best part of you?

What might that look like?

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.
