Bodies rhythmic like mother earth
Spring blossoms harvest summers worth
Heat of summer slows down
Freezing winter don’t move around
Ebbs flows within
Mind of their own hard to win
Mistake many make
Look for reasons in life’s wake
Objectifying mood we’re in
Cause some external whim
Nothing to do with this that whatever
Inside like the weather
Embrace or not that’s how it is
Resist life says none of your biz
The thing to do if you want peace
Accept rhythms let go release
Only way out is the way through
Go with flow don’t resist what’s true
Rhythms your teacher ally friend
Bumps emerge for you to mend
In the end nowhere to go
Home in your skin no thinking I know
Welcome friends emerging within
Hug kiss embrace as kin
Ever think biochemistry causes your internal state
and not something external?
Would life be different if you honored that?

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.
