Torture mind can unleash
Not feeding hunger or release
Stuck-ness holds like vise
Monkey mind thinks 2X twice

More living than chattering hell
More letting go makes you well
Way beyond normal norm
Hearing the internal storm

Joy in the presence of god
No chatter north-pointing nod
No place deeply home
Presence without scream or moan

Resting firmly feet on ground
Solid nothing to be found
Rich dwelling in your being
Enabling force they’re seeing

From that presence all unfolds
Younger older on your roads
Suddenly quiet chatter abated
Peace alights angels mated

Do you identify with these words and the impact of presence beyond thinking mind?

Has that informed your search for peace?

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.
