Suddenly flat without chatter
Complaints gone no matter
Visions for tomorrow clear
What you want already here
No shattering noise dissonant sound
All is quiet no longer bound
Crippling programs of yesterday’s mind
Fading receding leaving behind
Yesterday’s storms you have weathered
New freedom of being untethered
Monsters conquered chased or dead
Purged from awareness a new clear head
What resides inside you
Now you’re empty no longer blue
What do you say every day
To provide direction and sense of play
Messages come loud and clear
Let go attachments no holding dear
All’s transitory it shifts and moves
Let go irksome find your grooves
Don’t fight the river float downstream not up
Life’s not a struggle do fill up your cup
Be even serene observe all that passes
Rise above understand engage in life’s classes
What thinking habits are you holding that no longer serve?
What words affirm and serve who you are now?

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.
