Strong emotion grips sometimes
Sneaks up no rhythm or rhymes
Feeling empty deep in soul
Longing to fill an empty hole
Regardless of wisdom awareness grace
It shows up fills your space
Sometimes a specific cause
Sometimes from what once was
Sitting in sadness that is
Try sending away it’s not your biz
It won’t happen can’t chase away
Can’t rush ignore distract with play
Longing holds lessons pay attention
Its voice is giving direction
Listen to whispers inside
As a friend ally and guide
Heed direction it wants to take
Honor the message of your heartache
Trust the reality go deep explore
Follow as it leads to a door
What sadness are you experiencing?
What is the voice saying about something that needs doing or a relationship needing healing?

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.
