What is your longing deepest sense of dis-ease
Mandates submerging buckles your knees
Disquiet inside will not yield or cease
Demanding focus as you search for peace
Challenge you live with going along
Dealing with descent remaining strong
Longing for normal predictable life
Pervades being sleeps with you at night
Can’t ignore messages internal
Influencing the path of innermost kernel
In the deep pool looking at this and that
Birthing new life finding where you are at
Each time you go down for more clarity
Each time digging deeper there’s more to see
Each time questions searching for truth
Each time rise up a new sense of worth
As you move forward immaculate being
Into chasms that foster clear seeing
Thanking voices that drive new depths
Surfacing with much more self-respect
Each reconfigure rewiring tryst
Removes from you shrouded old mist
As you are reborn alive anew
Give thanks to blessings honoring you
Whirling pain awakens you from a dream
Tossing revealing why it is you scream
Remember the mission is your deep learning
Reason for being not consuming or earning
Does awareness of mission calm or create a greater sense of urgency?
Is living with people committed mission helpful?

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.
