Life begins again renewed one time more

After midnight’s passage a rough one for sure

The tossing and turning burning of the heart

The ever raging fire poised for a new start


The way that we process our musings internal

The night sweats and terror sometimes fear seems eternal

Our vehicle is complex a fine-tuned machine

Serving us quite nobly dream after dream and dream


After a dark passage quiets your full soul

You wonder and speculate what’s needed to be whole

You’re never quite sure why wondering prevails

As you go through many endless travails


It’s not about conquering high mountains deep seas

It is about mastering mind and quieting disease

That is the journey of the self-conscious soul

Compassion acceptance and filling your bowl


When imminent death wonders was I all I could be

Did you share yourself with your friends gracefully

Remember it’s not about the $$$$ you reaped

But did those around you enjoy peaceful sleep


Why are you here? On this planet? At this time?

Are you living your life purpose? Are you sure?

What else might you do to fulfill that life purpose?

Is your work your play?

What would be playful work?

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.
