How do you account for the periodic visit
Of quiet inside and a sense of contentment
How do you generate that presence more often
In a world that seems harsh how can we soften
What are the practices you can bring to bear
So that you can listen and truly hear
How can you stay calm in the chaos
Staying centered in the chatter among us
Where do you find the solace you need
In a place that’s forgotten simple good deeds
Why must each step be productive and gainful
Sometimes its nice just avoid all that’s painful
Develop your practice and faithfully adhere
Step off the wheel find the calm here
Meditation yoga a walk in the woods
Makes you realize you have too many coulds
Do it each day no matter resistance
Soon you reap benefits of your persistence
You will be rewarded with peace of mind
Just remember it’s something you can always find
What are the centering practices you use for balance?
Are they working for you?
What else could you be doing?
What gets in the way?
What will keep you practicing?
What story about practicing will motivate you?

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.
