Bodies have rhythms like mother earth
Blossoming spring harvesting summers worth
The heat of summer warms and slows us down
The freezing of winter keeps us moving around
The ebbs and flows take place deep within
Have a mind of their own you cannot win
Often the mistake so many make
Looking for reasons within life’s wake
Objectifying the mood we are in
Pointing as cause to some external whim
Has nothing to do with this that whatever
What goes on inside is like the weather
Like it or not that’s how it is
Try to resist life says: “None of your biz!”
The thing you must do if you want to have peace
Honor you rhythms therein lies release
The only way out is the way through
Go with your own flow don’t resist your true
Make your rhythms your teacher ally friend
Smoothing the bumps as you travel and mend
In the end when there’s nowhere to go
You’ll feel at home in your own skin you know
Welcome new friends as they surface within
A hug and a kiss embrace them as kin
Do you do your best to connect your internal state to some external cause?
Have you thought that it may just be your own unique biochemistry?
Next time your mood shifts: some external event or your own rhythms?

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.
