Down at essence center core
Remember what you came for
Beneath chatter running about
Quiet simplicity wants to shout
Artists work reduce refine
A grand epic to a line
One brush stroke a simple word
Enduring for all who heard
Truth is simple without noise
Surfaces out of your poise
Natural shapes you can see
Open heart frees you to be
Everyday pleasure grist of life
Satisfying little strife
Complexity much to do
Then get older wiser too
Eating laughing sunset’s delight
Communing makes your life bright
Encouragement wisp of touch
Smile teardrop hug says much
Effortless blissful states
Wisdom an abundant plate
Boundless pleasures many free
Slow down don’t try just love and be
Are you taking enough time to enjoy simple pleasures?
How can you engage in a daily simple pleasure and what is today’s?

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.
