Planet earth needs a place to rest
Where birds sing and preen each knows what’s 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
Perspective that’s special 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.
