Demons of consciousness defy intention
Renders you spineless in a dimension
Cancels self-confident energy of being
Blindfolds vision relegates seeing
Surly monster seems without end
Enveloping demanding you bend
Progress halted actions stop
Life is molasses you want to drop
Will it end this bottomless pit
Will you surface intact with wit
In this chasm been before
Daunting passage not what came for
Helping endure seeing the end
Resilience elevates it is friend
The ordeal ends finally turn
Lessons prevail you need to earn
Life not for the meager or weak
Nor the faint-hearted acting like sheep
Listen to voices follow your heart
Let life come unfolding as art
Cultivate wisdom be kind to friends
Hear with compassion serve make amends
Be patient humble no worry about trends
Take joy in hours connected to friends
How do you get beyond the overwhelm of challenging moods?
Can you anticipate situations knowing you will persevere
and thrive drawing on resilience?

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.
