A warming soft presence is part of you

Walking alongside whatever you do

Replacing anxiety filling your space

Making room for laughter some call it grace


Love lifts narrow horizons waking you up

It’s working 24/7 filling your cup

The gift’s always inside not somewhere out there

When you really know love it’s something to cheer


The longing driving you for so many years

Is finally quiet tears have disappeared

You have arrived your yearning ceased

Standing on your own fear has been released


As part of rebirthing the old self has died

You’re radically shifted with a new sense of pride

Instead of thinking “I’m not enough!”

People ask you to smooth their rough stuff


What a great difference one lifetime can make

When we learn the lesson “life’s to give not take”

Now all of your days can be filled with bliss

With the sweetest laughter and the spark of a kiss


Can you recall a time when you were infused with the kind of love that was more a presence in you than the product of a relationship?

What was the sensation like for you? Is it something you wear proudly and transparently?

How does it serve you personally and professionally?

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.
