What is the quiet essence of your sacred soul

What is intensely personal a universal whole

What creates perspective quieting your longing

What takes you back to center a source of early morning


Some call it meditation some say it’s devotion

For some its quiet stillness for others roar of ocean

For some it only happens when quiet and alone

For others ecstatic dancing and deep plaintiff moans


What these share in common is a sacred force

Connection to the universe that you can’t divorce

Electricity of “ohhmming” vibrating in your head

Connecting to a primordial bog the place life forces wed


From this pinpoint presence you can see it all

You gain understanding of why we periodically fall

You see it from a distance and enjoy the view

Letting go of the personal it’s not all about you


Acceptance is the outcome of this endless searching

Communion with your nature and all you’ve been learning

Only in your reverie when all else drops away

Warrior spirit emerges revealing the lightness of gods play


Are you loud or quiet when you are most prayerful?

What are the activities that get you there?

Do the people closest to you respect that part of you?

Do you respect the same parts of them even if different?

What does the phrase “lightness of gods play” mean to you?

How does it impact you?

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.
