Inside a body where you reside
Many spend years locked in mind
Year upon year marching through time
Busy about in the midst of fine wine
Worry this worry that
Mindless chatter chat chat chat chat
Living in heads buzzing about
One day body calls with a shout
Illness accident injury
Can you pause to find a me
You’re more than thoughts reactions
More than emotions physical attractions
Finally quiet whole self at peace
Let go with a sense of release
Whatever fears from your past
Awareness transcends them at last
From the belly of your machine
Deeper life force manifests a dream
Sense yourself walking on holy turf
Finally landed on solid earth
Embrace terrain though it feels strange
Requires your life to rearrange
Enjoy the comfort serenity brings
God stands within all sentient beings
If you were walking on new ground what would it feel, look, smell taste like?
Are others served by your change of presence?

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.
