What is this feeling peace tranquility

This nectar flowing with joyful ability

The gift that it brings gives all so much

It’s not from the doing achievement or such


It must be the glue the force and the power

Whatever holds you each moment and hour

It fills up the space it is the void

Present to all when you’re not annoyed


If this or that gets in the way

Godhead is present to you every day

It is the sea sky ground and air

Whatever is empty it fills with care


You’re never alone and never off course

The blessing with you through any remorse

What could you want that it cannot see

The sweet and gentle the bird and bee


It holds and caresses down to the soul

It tickles your toes and fills up any hole

It lifts you up to the brightest stars

Imprisoned no longer it removed all bars


Let us be thankful and say a prayer

Gifted this life good to be here

Rejoice celebrate honor your sacred living

Remember always thanks is worth giving


What are all the things you have to be grateful for?

Can you relish the joy and thrill of living today?

Can you breathe the air, taste the food, hug a loved one, give to the poor and love those around you?

What more could you really want?

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.
