Peacemaking peacekeeping noble art
Beginning inside where to start
First place look inside your heart
What motivation you play what part
Does your action reflect an inner smile
Does engagement transcend ego’s wile
What lies within inner reserves
Compel action when you lose nerve
Humanity pulls you to this end
Not knowing what’s around the bend
Compassion broadens wings of dove
Sweet nectar the purity of your love
Quietly in touch with inner source
Stop your chatter let go of remorse
Conjure a vision peace that abides
No certainty about your traveling rides
Let faith emerge to quiet fear
Trust god will guide help get you there
Path straight and narrow steps steep and true
Stay mindful honor counsel it is not about you
Be a selfless presence voice guiding the way
Your instrument merges with sense of play
Silent at center chaos all around
Mystery birthing peace from common ground
Have you embraced the truth that your external is a mirror of the internal?
What is unsettled in your world such that you crave more 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.
