Troubled by grasping and will
Exerting demands pushing to fill
Disregard others refuse to let go
Selfish wanting is plaguing so
Rather than accept step into flow
Try to control thinking you know
Assume earth a human playground
Finally realize other species abound
Dare I suggest for those here now
Time to be bigger with a new vow
Let go of ego let go of will
Practice patience learn to be still
Accept life get out of your way
Then take some time for play
What serves on seeker’s path
Conserve energy cut down wrath
Let go of what you think should be
Take care of business a way to be free
Honor true self the one deep inside
Filled with wisdom there you reside
When this that happens not about bliss
Satisfaction is fleeting like a lover’s kiss
Take nurture from patience choose let go
See up down process of your small ego
Step into easy let presence emerge
Forget abandon it will tax your nerve
In detachment hearts quietly sing
Love for the asking don’t do anything
What can you learn from stillness and observing chattering mind body?
Can you make that presence part of your practice?

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.
