The quiet silence of breathing that’s clean

Even vibrations in a slow motion dream

Dancing brain alighted on a crow’s nest perch

In this sacred instant you ceased your noble search


The war of your factions is strangely serene

Birdsong prevails in your bucolic scene

Your dear ones are happy headed their true north

Longings appetites filled by wellbeing and warmth


Night sky is very star full days sunshine and blue sky

Filling up the heavens and pleasing to the eye

The restless abandon you thought was your plight

Has vanished from consciousness much to your delight


Centered and pointed your presence pure breath

Nirvana has crowned you with her happiness

You’ve reached understanding how some of life fits

And for this present moment nothing to resist


You can step into this deserving grace

Moment to moment this is your place

You’re one of the blessed of the very few

Noise peeled away you arrived at what’s true


Have you ever felt the presence of grace in your life?

What was that experience like?

How long did it last?

What brought you to know it?

Is there something that prevents you from knowing it all the time?

What is it?

Do you think you have a choice to welcome grace’s presence? Why? Why not?

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.
