Suddenly striving and pushing seems crazed

All of a sudden awake from a daze

Wherever my mind was pushing to go

It became clear I already know


No place to get to why not be still

Deep in your center find your strong will

From that place of quiet all will emerge

Clear space is present after the purge


Most of our lives we move frantically about

Demanding expecting ranting with shout

We miss the pure blessing of our sacred being

While crashing through lives without ever seeing


If we are lucky smart and aware

We come to realize we’re already there

No place to go to no mountain to climb

Relax slide into your next sacred rhyme


Stay centered and clear within your sphere

Sacred wisdom will get you to your next there

Bask in the reverie of your arrival

Nowhere to go nothing to strive for


Be pure and simple friends to the flowers

Be gentle and steadfast hours upon hours

Be confident radiant receiving and clean

Enjoy the pleasures of your magnificent dream


What have you been striving for?

What if you were already there and had all you need?

What if your future was already taken care of?

What if you could just be a human “being?”

How would your life be different?

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.
