Swirling round twisted brain
Unrelenting torrential rain
Feeling good not all life’s about
Manic baffling you want to shout

Beneath commotion deep in mist
Quiet beyond analysis
Eye of needle center of storm
Respite within providing warm

Burning glow can sustain
Salving aches dries pelting rain
Perspective when frayed and worn
Abiding laughter for your storm

Holy sacred in profane
Helps navigate searing pain
Enshrouds protects essential you
Central kingdom where you rule

Seek abiding peace inside
Quiet feeds cells their pride
Here all worthwhile is born
Holy birthing from your storm

When do you experience the quiet still center of being?

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.
