Oh what a wish oh what a longing
Two places at once at each there’s belonging
Do you feel pulled and sometimes twisted?
When you want to be here but go there have you missed it
How many times have you been frustrated
When you ought to be here feeling elated
What is the solution how have you succeeded
When one part wants this but the other is pleading
So what do you do what’s the solution
To get from conundrum to resolution
The simple solution the easy way clear
To be in both places with a smile and good cheer
Old Hindu masters they had the answer
With resourceful intention they avoided disaster
Through clarity of spirit and sheer force of will
They went to both places and they had their fill
Their physical body they sent to one place
Spirit went elsewhere with lightness and grace
They trusted they knew what happened there
While their physical body remains calmly here
To some this seems folly just mere delusion
This hocus pocus is no solution
But others are sure with clarity rare
Imagination is as good as being there
How do you deal with conflict in your life?
Is it something that’s easy or challenging for you?
Where did you learn how to deal with conflict?
Is that method serving you?
Have you ever made a choice to learn how to get good at dealing with conflict?

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.
