With all the input imprinted on our cells
Periodically it’s essential to scrub where consciousness dwells
It’s more than our brain cells that need wiping clean
Our electro-chemical charge interferes with our being

Technique hardly matters many abound
It’s much more important use one you think profound
Many forms of yoga provide release supreme
Organized religion may satisfy your dream

Exercising with vigilance may quiet your chatter
Esoteric wisdom schools may be all that matter
Hiking in the wilderness silent mediations
Regressing through past lives chanting incantations

Practices are not the end they are only means
The place they take you creates a mind that’s clean
The clarity and wisdom residing in each one
Does not have to be installed it’s ready to run

In our quest for insight and enlightenment
We search to find out where “it” went
“It” is always with you it just needs dusting off
Seek to find the practice that is your jeweler’s cloth

Do you have a regular practice that enables you to reboot your system?
Are you a regular practitioner?
When was the last time you engaged in a deep cleansing?
What did it do for you? What gets in the way of you doing it more often?
Can you make a commitment to make it a more regular part of your life? Why not?

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.
