Dear ones I greet you with open arms
As you pass through layers of life’s many harms
As your journey unravels in soul psyche mind
The quest of your steps to let go of each bind
Who said it was easy to travel this path
One day it’s angels next day it’s god’s wrath
You are the anchor hold on with firm grip
Arise when you stumble thru each fall and trip
Just when you think you traversed the last ledge
You realize again you’re back on the edge
Paradoxical present tricks you each time
The highs and lows and breadth of the climb
Each rung on the spiral serves a new twist
The closer to heaven the more you resist
Keep breathing and drinking pure water and air
Let faith guide each footstep until you are there
You are the shepherd you are the sheep
When you embrace that you’ll no longer weep
Where do you focus what words fill your mind
You get to choose nasty or kind
Once you realize you are your liege
You’ll begin to take action only to please
Focus on thoughtful mindful delight
Realize the folly of fight and flight
Let your own wisdom observe and come through
Embrace sacred truth the god within is you
Have you begun to recognize the wisdom of your own inner voices and counsel?
Do you trust that aspect of your being?
What prevents you from knowing that your internal responses to your questions have great value?

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.
