In your deepest recesses what do you desire

What are your longings how do you aspire

When covered in darkness enmeshed with the night

What is your solace and what makes things right


What do you turn to when all seems lost

When warmth is elusive and all’s covered in frost

Can’t seem to breathe all airways clogged

Your mind is cloudy your presence fogged


We all have a center a place of pure being

This is where we turn when we need to cling

Is it for you a temple a statue or poem

A task or a person you have come to call home


This holy union of you and thou

Fills up emptiness and quiets somehow

The beast that was raging churning and wild

Salves like mother’s blanket on her beloved child


Be still and quiet go to that place

Drink it all in with the sage of your grace

It is ever present no matter the travail

It holds and keeps and guarantees that you will prevail


Where do you turn to when all around you is swirling?

What provides answers and solace for you?

Do you have a personal practice you have been cultivating?

How does it feed you?

Is it enough?

What else do you need?

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.
