Residing inside behind our presence
A fundamental part of human essence
Beneath the surface beyond sense or reason
An emergent reaction to someone’s treason
Roots in primordial fear
Terror of birth injustice here
Rises up when crossed or burned
Seeing injustice or pleading spurned
Reactive energy rips things apart
In contrast to a compassionate heart
Reaction a devil blood lust revenge
Go beyond its orbit suffer its spiteful end
Use the reservoir of this powerful force
The energy of reaction as powerful source
Use rage grow bigger stronger of heart
It motivates this high human art
Do not let trespass poison your passionate soul
Do not allow their violation to make you less whole
Beckon your love sweetness and more
Let your soul flower in what you came for
Set those who betrayed as needing your love
Not knowing better they need warmth not a shove
Respond with compassion no vitriol or hate
Your ticket through an evolutionary gate
What triggers and taps into your rage?
Next time can you ask what is there to learn and transmute the energy into something that serves the situation?

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.
