No matter who no matter where

No matter how so long as there’s air

Each life needs each life requires

A respite from all of each life’s desires


We each deserve a day of peace

Carved out to let the relentless release

To recharge our cells relax the mind

The gift we give ourselves so kind


It’s time to sit and cogitate

Reflect upon your state of state

It’s time to take a big time-out

Asking yourself what your life’s about


Refreshment for your body and soul

Take the time to make yourself whole

Connect with universal mind

Clear up the places that bind


Renewed and clear back to the chase

We’re ready for our chosen race

If you keep going without a stop

You’ll hit a wall and you will drop


Take some needed Sabbath time

To help make your life sublime

Carry memories of your peaceful rest

They’ll help you conquer you next quest


Do you have some practices for renewal built into your life?

Are they enough for you?

What is it that they do not provide?

How might you supplement them?

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.
