Who are you how do you be

What sense of self reflects your me

Do you have roots holding you to earth

Roots providing anchor and sense of worth


Self-possessed knowledge of what you’re about

Percolating from inside your ballast is stout

This center took years of work to entrain

Reflecting your essence beyond your brain


Not something hidden traveling your path

It fosters unfolding finding soft grass

The energy pouring from cells that are you

Entering a room your light’s in full view


Awakened enlivened tempered to the bone

So clear the presence so pure the hone

Let resentment empty cleaned at the source

Inner wisdom the guide bringing more of you forth


Others recognize integrity from within

They know they’re not meeting a creature of whim

Deeply reflective and nourished by source

Rarely regretful with little remorse


How do you feel about the presence that you are?

Is it something you have been cultivating?

How are others reacting to it?

Do you feel complete with it?

Are there additions you would like to make?

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.
