Planet earth needs a place to rest

Birds sing and preen knowing what is best

Order is clear all know their place

Thanksgiving presides all sit in grace


It may not last forever this crystalized glee

Though it is a foundation of peace harmony

Connection to others cells all slow down

Resting acceptance all over each town


A special perspective grounded serene

Life in a dream state without any mean

The wealth that’s engendered richness and love

Starts from within grows just because


It lives deep inside all of our cells

Seated in belly where your center dwells

Humanity does not need so much strife

Varietal wars occupying so much of life


Longing for peace and ongoing respite

How might we hold and keep it in sight

Peace and tranquility moments’ sublime

Enjoy aspiring rest in the time


What is your peace quotient?

How much of your life is lived in a state of peace?

What guidance or coaching would you have for others about how to achieve it?

Do you think it of value as an aspiration?

Why? Why not?

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.
