Silence no chatter or cracks
Stillness serenity fill your tracks
Awakened in peace after long flight
Would you last one more night

Calm settles quieting fear
Anxiety suddenly disappeared
Long for solace without agitation
Rest peaceful with seasoned elation

You’ve been through it every year
What moved you getting you here
Stopped dissipating energy
Embraced letting go to be free

Fear the culprit stealing space
Filling mind with disgrace
What to say about churning
Teaches us about our burning

Trust that wisdom prevails
Dampening today’s travails
Courage step to the next rung
Faith provides a welcoming hug

How do you get to a place of quiet?

What do you do when access is challenging?

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.
