Now in this moment no better time

When destiny calls put your life on the line

The fear in your stomach and hole in your chest

Mandates getting stronger putting forth your best


In many moments you have the chance

To reach for the next rung invent a new dance

Don’t let opportunities pass you right by

Don’t sit on your doorstep ready to cry


Please swallow deeply when called for your mission

Give yourself permission follow your vision

Don’t shrink from accepting responsibility

Make this earth lighter and brighter to see


Follow the sparkles that dance in your brain

Follow your footsteps out of your pain

Trust in your heart song honor your plan

Take your place in your future sing prideful you can


One day you’ll look back and say “What was that?”

Why was I so nervous I could not relax

You would not be called if you did not possess

All the skills tools and presence for your happiness


What happened the last time you were called to take bold action?

Did you follow through and exceed the expectations others had of you or did you chose not to respond?

How did you feel about yourself after the moment passed?

What will you do in the future?

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.
