Su Wen

In this sacred moment at your unique pace

It all comes together with style and with grace

After the struggle after the pain

Your humpty dumpty together again


When in the throes of grasping for a life

On the steep journey you are the midwife

Times you can’t breathe you gasp for breath

Struggling to emerge from your sunken depth


Although you have guides as you search for a path

They refuse to do it for you that brings up your wrath

Passing through a needles eye

Fills you with awe and a deep sigh


When you invest in discovering self

Can’t let it be measured by anyone else

The journey takes as long as it takes

A toll is learning where you break


Just when you think it will never fit

When the pain and struggle makes you want to quit

You’re glowing alive and feeling pink

It all fits together and aligns with a wink


For those struggling why must I search

Trust me I promise you’ll find the right perch

It all aligns in night’s sky a su wen

Listen your own voice will tell you when


What sense of integration do you feel in your life?

Do you have a sense of what’s currently missing?

How does a lack of integration detract from your life?

What shift or action needs to happen for you to feel a sense of integration?

What first steps might you take? How might integration contribute to your life?

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.
