A knowing sense deepening in your heart

Profound caring as exquisite art

A mindset of beingness enfolds you on earth

Your joy lightens suffering as you spread mirth


Deep understanding for those in your space

You joyously foster their sense of grace

Whatever habits whatever their ill

Your private mission melt stubborn will


Taking on the presence of your honorable self

Cannot be requested by somebody else

Gifts freely given just what you do

It takes nothing from it only fills you


The joy of observing smiles on their face

Your wish to enlighten the human race

Remember the journey starts close to home

Remember yourself you’re never alone


Amazing how god takes care of you

When you minister others trusting your truth

Remember the secret of peace on this earth

Quieting suffering earns a great deal of worth


What are the ways you provide grace for others?

When you know you are doing that how does it make you feel?

What do others tell you about the gift of your presence?

Are you generous or measured in giving that gift?

What does it cost you?

How is it an investment?

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.
