All of your windows wiped squeaky clean
The dream of living merged with your being
What was filled with dark clouds and often rain
Cracked open in sunshine released all your pain

Trust in your seeing magnified many fold
Suddenly wiser a mystic from old
So much more playful the child emerged
Admonitions prohibitions guilt and shame purged

Through this clear window you see all around
Your ecstatic presence has awakened in sound
The voices of eons calling to you
Suddenly everything takes on a new hue

No longer chatter clouding your now
The ego is silenced you stand on the prow
Darting emotion is seen from above
You embrace that vision with accepting love

Wars and judgments that raged inside you
No longer hearing you’re free and new
Let go of busyness from yesterday’s mind
Step into new life leave all else behind

How much chatter do you live with?
What is the noise about?
What is the noise trying to tell you?
Does the chatter represent something that is incomplete for you?
How might your life be different if what is behind the noise was resolved?
What is in the way?

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.
