Starting something sparkles and glows

Quickens your thinking wakes up your toes

Excites your body tickles your mind

Propelling you places leaving old-self behind


Dawning new visions letting go of old fears

Breaking free of chains that locked you for years

Reinvention beginnings are possible now

Time for rebirth figuring out how


The best part of starting new

Do it now no matter what’s been true

No matter how stuck no matter your place

You have power discover your private grace


No need to move body or any stuff

You don't need to travel or get on a bus

Use a new mind to set a direction

A new sense of purpose a new intention


Just step back get out of your way

Your guidance system navigates any fray

One day you wake up know you are there

You started over without that old fear


Recall a time when you began a project with a clear sense of purpose?

What was that like and how did it feel?

Now think of a project you began that was not connected to a clear personal purpose?

What was that like?

What was the main difference?

What do you want to begin today?

How will you do 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.
