Serenely quiet no chattering mind
All illusion unveiled you’re no longer blind
A new peaceful presence visits your home
From here to forever you’re never alone
How did you get here what guides revealed your path
As you navigated from bliss to wrath
Your vision undaunted though challenged and stretched
Sometimes it was joyful and sometimes you wretched
All are forgiven their trespass allowed
You’ve let go of anger you’re no longer proud
It was never you who was turning the dials
It was part of a plan to log many miles
Now that you’ve arrived at this graceful place
What will you do now what pains can you erase
Look back on your journey think on what you learned
Now you mentor others that’s a gift you’ve earned
Learn from your teaching share what you know
Honor the lessons they help you to grow
Embrace the wisdom you understand
Let lightness of presence blanket your land
Carry water chop wood that falls on your road
Acknowledge the honor of a heavy load
You will never be given more than you can hold
Don’t complain of the burden follow what you’ve been told
The only way out is the only way through
Don’t give up traveling just keep moving too
The gift of your effort contentment of soul
With certainty knowing god made you whole
What are the things in life that make you feel blessed?
Are they events, people, accomplishments?
How often do you count these blessings?
Do you think you acknowledge their presence often enough? Why / Why not?
What else might you do?

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.
