Place is orientation ground rest and stillness

Where we are comfortable no need for willfulness

Here we are quiet close to our heart

We can be ourselves begin a new start


Life comes up to meet us solid under feet

This is where we feel heart and its rhythmic beat

All our earthly belongings happen to be here

It is where our stuff is that provides some cheer


This is where we come when we need rebirth

This is where we go for some joy and mirth

Here does not matter what the time of year

It’s our place for grounding there’s never fear


So I say “Dear Heart” do you have a home

A longing space when you’re on the roam

A spot that draws you like a magnet’s pull

When you arrive you’re immediately full


Does your life have purpose when you’re in this space

Do you create visions that provide pure grace

Does some profound meaning enter pure heart

Take your balance from here let go fits and starts


What do you identify as home?

Do you go often enough?

What happens to you when you are there?

When you feel the pull what is tugging on you?

What might happen if you visited more frequently?

What would it take for you to create a home?

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.
