Striving and pushing seems crazed

Suddenly awake from a daze

Wherever mind was pushing to go

Abundantly clear you already know


No place to get to why not be still

Deep in your center find your strong will

From that place of quiet all will emerge

Clear space is present after the purge


Much of life we move frantically about

Demanding expecting ranting shout

Missing pure blessing of our sacred being

Crashing through lives without ever seeing


If we are lucky smart and aware

We come to realize we’re already there

No place to go to no mountain to climb

Relax slide into your next sacred rhyme


Stay centered within your sphere

Wisdom gets you to your next there

Bask in the reverie of your arrival

Nowhere to go nothing to strive for


Pure simple friends to the flowers

Gentle steadfast hours upon hours

Confident radiant receiving clean

Pleasures of a magnificent dream


What if you were already where you have been striving for and had all you need?

If you could just be a human “being” how would your life be different?

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.
