This feeling of wholeness safety and rest

You relax and let go of all that’s not best

A peaceful pure presence comes over you

No striving or searching you rest in what’s true


The honesty and warmth of being known

Provides freedom and comfort that tells you you’re home

Essential warm feelings provide context that’s deep

You fall off in slumber and sleep profound sleep


This fortunate blessing bestowed upon you

Enables the outreach destiny calls you to do

The glory external comes from the ground

Of your foundation that’s truly profound


How did you deserve such a marvelous gift

Your lovely beginning supported each shift

Potential glory reflected in you

Unconditional loving will see you through


Perspectives and wisdom imparted to you

Values and meaning and compassion too

The gift of this family was a deep solid core

The presence supporting what you came here for


As you move forward carving your path

Let the scythe of your giving cut a wide swath

Always remember the source of your strength

Its ennobling value is your great wealth


How has the context you came from supported your journey?

What were the abiding lessons that remain the foundation of your being?

What learning’s came on the affirmative side?

What learning’s came through adversity?

Who do you need to thank and acknowledge?

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.
