Down at the essence the center the core
It all becomes easy what you came here for
Beneath the chatter and running about
Lies a quiet simplicity wanting to come out
The work of all artists reduce and refine
To take a grand epic down to a line
To say with one brush stroke and some choice words
What will be enduring for all who have heard
Truth is real easy no diverting noise
It comes to the surface out of your poise
Forms that are natural shapes you can see
Open your heart free yourself to be
Everyday pleasures from the grist of life
There lies satisfaction with little strife
You thought it was complex so much to do
Then you get older and wiser too
Eating and laughing sunset’s delight
Communion companion make your life bright
A smile and a teardrop a hug says so much
A word of encouragement the wisp of a touch
It can be effortless to know blissful states
Let your wisdom reveal your abundant plate
Most of god’s boundless pleasures are free
Slow down stop trying just love and be
Are you taking enough time to enjoy simple pleasures?
What are the ones that are most enjoyable for you?
Is it possible for you to engage in one simple pleasure everyday?
How might that change your life?
What pleasure will you engage in immediately?

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.
