Begin again renewed one time more
Midnight’s passage rough one for sure
Tossing turning burning the heart
Raging fire paused a new start
The way we process musings internal
Night sweats terror fear eternal
Our vehicle complex fine-tuned machine
Serving us nobly dream after dream
When a dark passage moves your soul
Wonder speculation a need to be whole
Never sure why inquiry prevails
As you traverse endless travails
Not about conquering mountains deep seas
About mastering mind quieting disease
The journey of a conscious soul
Compassion acceptance fill your humble bowl
Imminent death wonder was I all I could be
Did I share myself with friends gracefully
Remember it’s not about the dollars you reaped
Do those around you enjoy peaceful sleep
Why are you here at this time?
What else might you do to fulfill your life purpose?

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.
