Clear crystal silence no chatter or cracks

Stillness serenity stopped in your tracks

Awakened in peace after fight upon fight

Wondering could you last one more night


Calm settles in quieting fear

Anxiety suddenly has disappeared

Longing for solace resting agitation

At last landed alone with elation


What put you through it what sent you there

When you've been through it year after year

What if you stop wasting energy

What if you embrace letting go being free


Fear is the culprit taking your space

Filling mind body concerns of disgrace

What can we say about this old churning

It's here to teach about our own burning


The hope deepest wisdom prevails

Saying no to ongoing travails

Learning to trust step on the next rung

Faith will provide a welcoming hug


What is your way of getting to your place of quiet?

Is it always available?

What do you do when you can't access it?

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.
