What is this life force this energy within?
It holds us together through thick and thin
Takes care when we’re elsewhere always on watch
And when we itch it’s there to scratch

The one that we turn to when we are scared
The place we long for when our soul is bared
When we are unsteady or ready to crack
god’s always there to cover our back

Faith can be fleeting or energy low
When you’re unforgiving from god love will flow
A vessel of compassion that will get you through
No matter the trauma god gives to you

Your friend in emergency and time of need
Your shining knight armor with trusty steed
The saving grace portal that will lead you
No matter how challenging and what you’ve been through

The glorious kingdom that’s here for you
god is the essence waiting for you
Don’t wait till later tap into the source
god’s love enfolds and forgives all remorse

How do you hold the idea of god?
Is it a person, an ideal, an energy, a set of rules…???
How did you develop this personal perception of god?
Is the perception something you personally own or did someone else do the work for you?
Do you think it would be valuable to generate your own personal understanding of god?

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.
