When you stop striving reaching for goals
You will stop floundering baffling on shoals
All of your reaching will not take you where
You think you need you’re already there
There is nothing no place to go
Already realized you just don’t know
Saintly presence you’re questing to reach
Would provide nothing you can’t already teach
Serenity lives inside you
Your task embrace there is nothing to do
Rather than action it’s about letting go
Listen inside from that you will grow
Serenity comes from accepting what’s so
Trusting your wisdom and process to know
Letting go of ego thinking it needs more
Live in the moment be what you’re here for
If you embrace already whole
So rich so fertile so not alone
Serenity resides deep in your soul
Take a long drink from your mixing bowl
Does striving get in the way of your peace and serenity?
Can you be peaceful without a particular achievement and embrace that you are already whole?

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.
