Finally quiet no chatter inside
Stillness at last so you can hide
Dancing brain rests alights on a perch
Viewing landscapes abounding on earth

Journey’s thrilling with ups and downs
Hearty laughter longing sad frowns
Frantic activity meant to distract
Healthy anguish residing intact

One day you wake quiet within
Have you hit bedrock or just a whim
Knowledge comes after a time
Playing over in circular mind

Oh it does matter it’s up to you
A quiet seed inside your brew
Give that quiet crystal nurture galore
Feed it with care it will give more

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 get quiet can you sense growth under chatter?

Can you access that part of yourself more often?

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.
