Deep inside beyond presence
Fundamental human essence
Beneath surface beyond reason
Emergent response to treason
Rage a memory primordial fear
Terror of birth injustice here
Rises up if crossed or burned
Violations pleading spurned
Reactivity rips things apart
Contrast a compassionate heart
Forgo devilish blood revenge
Or risk suffering spiteful edge
Use intensity grow a stronger heart
Accelerate this human art
Reservoir of this powerful force
Energy from a profound source
Trespass poisons a compassionate soul
Violation makes you less whole
Beckon caring love sweetness more
Your soul births what you came for
See betrayers needing your love
Needing warmth not a shove
Respond with compassion not vitriolic hate
Ticket through an evolutionary gate
What triggers and taps into your rage?
Next time ask what is there to learn and transmute energy into something that resolves?

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.
