Finally quiet chatter inside
Stillness at long where you can hide
Dancing brain rests alights on a perch
Viewing the landscape abounding on earth
Journey’s been thrilling with ups and downs
Hearty laughter sometimes sad frowns
Frantic activity meant to distract
While keeping anguish residing intact
One day you wake quiet within
Is this inner space bedrock or merely whim
That knowledge comes after a time
As it plays over in your circular mind
That doesn’t matter it’s up to you
Quiet’s the seed inside your great brew
Give that quiet crystal nurture galore
Feed it with care it does not want more
The payoff a healthy deep glow within
Down in each cell where fire begins
The spiral flame aglow even keel
Fire sustaining all that is real
When you find time to get quiet can you sense healing underneath all the chatter?
Do you know you can choose to access that part of self more often?
What’s in the way you can control?

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.
