Refuge

No clear vibration no static or goop
No wings flapping wildly in your inner coop
The inquiry's over the searching has ceased
The effort has quieted your hungry beast

Longing has midwifed the ground you searched for
To get there you opened door after door
The echo of reverberating thoughts in your brain
Kept your quest in motion till no doubts remain

When you decided and your choice was made
Thru your misgivings and your sense of shame
Who did you hurt what did you let go
As you pushed life forward in order to grow

The test of your effort expending your wealth
Is whether you let go and moved to new health
Can you slip into your new skin with ease
Without wake or displacement does this pool please

When you lie down at the end of long days
Can you grin knowing you've come thru black haze
As you carry forward are you without remorse
Does knowing confidence keep you on course

If you can say yes to all the above
You've earned knowing nods from the forces of love
Let the faith of great wisdom continue your ride
Rest assured you have honored the gods living inside

What quests have driven your life?
What have you given up in search of your own integrity?
What have been the rewards?
What advice would you give others who were compelled to follow their heart at some personal cost?
How has the quest validated your choice to pursue 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.
