Finding strength in our weight
Remembering sacred at every gate
No simple answers easy decisions
One foot then next endless revisions
Know joys that honor self
And the sadness heartsickness felt
Sitting on edge things unraveling
Voices at odds then a shattering
When young life was simple
Trauma an unwanted pimple
Older now know less and more
Complexity what we’re here for
Not easier moving down your path
Tests increase need a nuanced craft
When pressure more than you can bear
A road beckons from over there
Back to your time in youth
Expect resolution in simplistic truth
Those days in the distant past
Allow solace of your private mass
What provides strength when feeling emotional and spiritual challenges?
What moves, nurtures and sustains you?

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.
