Finally grounded feet on the floor

This is a place I’ve not been before

Deep in my body my belly is home

From this strong center it’s easy to roam


The path I have traveled the tacks and stalls

Straight away speeding running into stone walls

The midnights of sweating the hole in my chest

The ongoing longing for someplace to rest


This sudden reclaiming of being that’s pure

The vast rearranging I could not want more

A life deep in body has challenges too

But earth is a teacher an old wisdom school


Many people resist the process of living

See human experience as unforgiving

I say please embrace the you that is real

Let go of defenses trust what you feel


The gift of your birthright an experience sublime

Follow your heart song have a good time

There’s no greater knowing than what’s inside you

Stay deep in your body it’s your friend lover too


How are you feeling about your own life experience?

Do you have a sense of being fully seated in your body?

Do you appreciate the wisdom your body has to teach you?

Do you honor it enough?

How might you pay tribute?

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.
