Trust your icons institutions that inspire

Ideas and ideals lighting your fire

Concepts constructs held in the heart

Principles you count on history art


As you are living moving through daze

Bedrocks relied on shifting to haze

Profound confusion search for new ground

Earth badly shaken can’t speak a sound


Shock to your system far wide deep

Shifts your perspective making you weep

Inside deep sadness rage disbelief

Innocence shattered engaging your grief


One moment confident stand on bedrock

Solid support reliable clock

Next moment sand castles all disappeared

Worst concern realized just what you feared


Did I push my limits testing my bounds

Undo myself searching for the next rounds

Vista and focus frames what you see

It’s all before you choose carefully


How have you been disappointed by an assumed solid individual or institution?

Do you devote time to edges calling for discernment ?

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.
