Hurtling forward through time and space

Constantly searching scanning for grace

Looking for solace and for your peace

Finding the junction that provides release


As you bounce around pillar to post

What is the knowing that startles you most

When we stop to realize that all of the bouncing

Provides nothing more than a big trouncing


When we discover that what we search for

Is buried inside we could not want more

The connection to heart that lives in your chest

You have the solace that serves you best


The skin that you live in the thoughts you think

They make up your life provide your relief

So as you travel search as you go

You won’t find better than the life in your soul


Remember your world is so much made up

Of the thoughts you think hateful or tough

You have a choice in programming your brain

You have the power to bring sunshine or rain


What words do you use without thinking about how those words shape your reality?

Are there other words you could use?

How might those words change the reality of your life?

How would those new words impact your relationships? Your work? Your sense of well-being?

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.
