Internal voices quiet serene

All of the longing has become liquid dream

Quiet clear no fretting or fuss

All of your “they” became part of your “us”


Everyone has what they need in their hand

Life can be idyllic but surely not bland

Education and arts health housing too

Whatever your needs taken care of for you


Political borders all kinds erased

No matter ethnicity religion or race

Using all we know gives security to all

Whatever your dreams follow their call


Compassion helps end criminality

Wisdom is mania’s release with finality

Systems in place to fulfill all needs

Life’s motivation art and good deeds


All of the things you worry about

Crimes that make you scream and shout

People you fear for in some way

All given the gift of their sense of play


Can this be done in your lifetime or mine

Can we give up power for a world that’s sublime

It’s all here we have more than each of us needs

Technology education distribution that feeds


This is not idle dreaming all we need is a plan

It starts with each person each woman and man

Everyone cherishing this vision’s possibility and worth

We could all go to heaven right here on earth


Have you ever wondered if we have the resources on planet earth to take care of all sentient creatures?

Do you think we have a resource or distribution challenge?

What stands in the way of creating a culture in which every sentient creature has their needs taken care of?

What might you do to make this dream a reality?

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.
