What many long for a place to rest

Where we can let down bring out our best

Where basic needs are provided each day

Where we trust the future and we can play

Where do we find a place to call home

A slice of bedrock from which we can roam

The ground that cradles us in what seems

A vision of tranquility that knows our dreams

Where do we find build and hold it

How do we nurture every component

Who is a part of this scene that can heal

A center of being that creates us as real

The folly we share as we seek to find it

Thinking it’s somewhere someone or we buy it

After our searching takes us all over

We realize it’s inside for us to uncover

Security arrives from trusting your essence

Listening closely becoming your own reference

So when you feel lonely afraid or just small

Honor your own voice it can provide all

What kind of security and home has always been your dream?

Do you have it now?

What do you think it would provide if you had it now?

How would your life be different?

What is between you and what you want?

What do you need to have 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.
