Intimacy

Deeply connected to your inner source

Sharing authentically on your noble course

No holding back for fear of seeming weak

Telling deepest heart letting insides speak

 

The path to your healing is through being close

Holding self separate makes it so much worse

Whatever the pain whatever chagrin

Eats at your insides if you hold it in

 

Giving yourself fully to a dear other

Enables a presence like sister or brother

Joining your essence in that simple way

Increases the ballast you bring to your stay

 

It helps you uncover what lies inside

As you navigate life and your personal tide

The treasures you’ll find housed deep within

Revealed by thoughtful bridges never by whim

 

Let others know what goes on inside

Do not hide yourself because of foolish pride

Don’t sit home alone with your pouting self

Engage deeply with others and find your real wealth

 

Can you recall a situation that healed you by talking about it with a trusted friend?

Is there something weighing on you right now that could use a friendly ear?

What is the risk you are afraid to take in opening that conversation?

What is the potential return?

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.
