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.
