When you’re unbalanced dizzy crazed

When all your cells need to be rearranged

What can you do quickly what intervention is fast

What’s the path to your grounding a solution at last


Sometimes it’s family bloodline and genes

Sometimes its chemicals drugs and food are your wings

Sometimes it’s a dear one a lover or friend

Sometimes your artistry takes you round the bend


Sometimes it’s nature leading back to your path

Sometimes womb water in the form of a bath

All these vehicles what do they do

They align your cells and point to center of you


Your first reaction when you fall off your train

I’m here again in this pouring rain

Please think again welcome the fall

Downpour’s your path back to your all


Don’t make the mistake seeking answers out there

Let the externals point back to your lair

The rain and the sunshine the joy and pain

Serve only as signals to get you home again


What do you do when you find yourself off center?

If you do not know what would it be if you did know?

How long does it take you to get back on track?

Have you discovered how the funk serves you?

Is it always useful to quickly move out of your funk?

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.
