Alone we’re born alone we die

In between that aloneness sometimes we cry

Much of our life made up of delusion

Fighting the battle of inner confusion


Every so often we wake from this dream

Experience the clarity of our sweet machine

It’s not very frequent that oneness visits

But we seem to know the wholeness that’s in us


We come for the lessons on our pilgrim’s path

One of our challenges to avoid our own wrath

Only in body do we get to feel

Lower emotions of the animal sphere


The starkness life can be on this human plane

Contrasts the unity from which spirit came

In higher dimension the place called home

No such thing as alone we’re part of the whole


The memory of unity shadows life on earth

No matter how noble or regal your birth

So as you search for your path back to god

No need to be serious please wink and nod


Have you given thought to what your life experience on earth in a body is about?

What have you come up with?

Is it possible that all of our experiences are nothing more than the context in which we get to feel, and to explore what those feelings mean?

If that is so do the wins, losses and achievement really mean much?

Why? Why not?

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.
