Who are you how do you be

What sense of self reflects your me

Do roots hold you to earth

Providing an anchor sense of worth


Self-possessed knowledge what you’re about

Percolating inside ballast stout

Center took years of work to entrain

Reflecting essence beyond your brain


Nothing hidden traveling your path

Fosters unfolding finding soft grass

Energy pouring from your cells

Entering a room your light rings bells


Awakened enlivened tempered to bone

So clear the presence so pure the hone

Let anger empty released at the source

Inner wisdom guiding you coming forth


Others recognize integrity from within

Know you’re not a creature of whim

Reflective presence nourished by goodness

Rarely regretful no sense of shouldness


How are you feeling about the presence you are?

How are others reacting?

Are there additions to make?

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.
