Inside a body that’s where you reside
Though many spend years locked in their mind
Year upon year on our march through time
We scurry about in the midst of fine wine
We worry about this we worry about that
In our own mindless chatter chat chat chat chat
We live in our heads buzzing about
One day our body calls with a shout
Often an illness accident injury
Forces a pause to find your real “me”
The real you is not just your thoughts and reactions
You’re more than emotions and physical attractions

Finally quiet the whole self at peace
Finally let go some sense of release
Whenever you fear what your past had you do
Establish new perspective with the will that’s you
From deep in your belly take over your machine
Let a deeper life force provide a new dream
Sense yourself walking on holey new turf
Finally landed the first time on earth
Embrace new terrain though it feels strange
It might require your whole life rearrange
Enjoy the comfort and serenity it provides
Let it be the sign god stands by your side
If you were walking on completely new ground what would it feel, look, smell taste like?
Can you go to that place right now and try it on? How is your life different?
How are others served by the change in your 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.
