Down in the essence your central core
It’s becoming easy what you are here for
Beneath all the chatter and running about
Lies a quieting simplicity wanting to come out
The work of artists to reduce and refine
Taking a grand epic down to a line
Saying with one brush stroke a few simple lines
What will be enduring for a long long time
Truth is very easy no diverting noise
It comes to the surface when you hold your poise
Forms that are very natural shapes you easily see
Open your clear hearts eye free yourself to be
Everyday pleasures from the grist of life
Therein lies satisfaction with so little strife
You thought it was complex so much to do
Then you get older and wiser too
Eating laughing sunset’s delight
Communion companion makes your life bright
A smile a teardrop a hug says so much
A word of encouragement a wisp of a touch
It can be effortless to know blissful states
Wisdom reminds abundant is your plate
Most of earth’s boundless pleasures are free
Slow down stop trying just love and be
Are you taking enough time to enjoy simple pleasures?
What are the ones that are most enjoyable for you?
Is it possible for you to engage in one simple pleasure every day?
How might that change your life?
Is there any downside?

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.
