A Poem A Day – Daily Practice for Seekers

Sometimes our gears get bogged down

Caught in a vortex wearing a frown

Needing movement up down left right

Hard to get unglued if gripped by fright


Longing resolution drives what we do

As the voice of vision makes music too

Undecided serves in some way

Included in the price we pay


Reverberating voice clogs the mind

Time energy a challenge to find

Present pain not strong enough

Staying in limbo till it gets too tough


What’s the answer when caught in this vice

What’s the action that returns things to nice

What single step begins our return

What movement cools down the burn


For this challenging place of heart

Quiet your voices make peace with your art

Let deep silence teach as you learn

Trust internal responses honor the yearn


You know the answers and what to do

As inner guidance carries you through

Careful of knee jerk reactions and moves

Allow the guidance tracking your grooves


How do you process the dissonance when feeling stuck in conflict?

What voices do you listen to and how do you decide which one to follow?

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.
