What pains you deep in the soul

What place calls out where you are whole

What tells you you’re missing a slice from your heart

What motivates action stimulates art


It’s in your corner where you are at source

When you’re connected life is without remorse

The driver that heals and reigns supreme

The one that congeals makes you human being


The longing that says you’re incomplete

Tells you what’s missing points to your feet

In the right direction when headed true north

Honoring purpose you drink at the trough


Here in your beauty here in your womb

That’s where you choose freedom or tomb

Here you fill up your time on this rock

Here you cogitate you can take stock


Here’s where you look for search and cajole

Here’s where you honor and ponder your soul

Here’s where you think about your deep divorce

Here’s where the fortunate stay connected to source


Do you feel connected to a “source?”

Is it internal or external?

What about that source grounds and heals you?

How do you know how important that source is for you?

What do you do to keep the connection strong?

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.
