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.
