Homeward

Home is within sometimes buried deep

When you go seeking the path very steep

Hard to gain access through many layers

Resistance comes from your many players

 

The trail’s very windy switch-backs dead-ends

So high and low you may get the bends

False starts distractions injuries too

Furious activity then nothing to do

 

Deeply embedded your compass and gyroscope

When seeming lost they provide hope

Your faith the fuel on your voyage home

As long as it’s with you you’re never alone

 

How will you know when you arrived

What signal will beckon invite you inside

There is your butler drawing your bath

Quietly revealing your next sacred path

 

The journey’s not ending in this life or next

Your schoolbook an epic an unending text

Home is your process discovery your birth

Wisdom transforming most misery to mirth

 

Learning acceptance thankfulness too

For the vehicle borrowed and what it teaches you

Allowing your partner gods’ presence inside

When you walk with god you’re home you’ve arrived

 

What has your journey been like?

Can you hold it as a learning lesson or is the drama important?

What do you do to perpetuate the lessons?

What have you learned today?

What will you learn tomorrow?

What is your true goal?

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.
