The presence of intention being in each moment

Focusing love in the now of atonement

The scarcity quiet listening to breathing

The rhythmic sensuality air through nostrils streaming


Why go exploring to distant shores unknowing

As we participate in our own disowning

We go around the circle back to the beginning

Finally discovering the source of our winning


We really want joy in our expression

Getting over the edge living with self-possession

Why give it up quickly surrendering our essence

When the gifts we bear are wrapped in our presence


Don’t pretend to know you have a better answer

Focus your attention you can find your dancer

It’s not in some possession or activity

It’s not inside an object it rests in your proclivity


When your dance is finished I hope your translucency

Will find itself inside the castle of your fluency

Temper your inner world give yourself foundation

The joy inside of you is your true elation


How do you seek to recognize and discover your personal presence?

How do you cultivate that presence?

How would you describe the essential you?

Would those closest to you agree?

How might you deliver more of you to the world?

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.
