Swirls circling twister brain
From centered to torrential rain
Feeling good not what life’s about
Manic baffling makes you shout
Beneath commotion deep in mist
A quiet beyond analysis
Eye of needle center of storm
Life within keeps you warm
Burning glow will sustain
Salve melts aching dries pelting rain
Perspective when frayed and worn
Abiding laughter friend in your storm
Holy sacred inside profane
Feeding guiding through searing pain
Enshrouds protects essential you
Kingdoms center from which you rule
Seeking status abiding peace inside
The quiet feeds your cells their pride
From this center all worthwhile is born
Holy birthing from your central storm
When did you last experience the quiet still center of your being?
What capacity enabled access and what way of being did it generate?

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.
