Experience not constant if you fully live

Emergence reflects what you give

Noble actors on your stage

Your dreamscape to rearrange


Some live constant cradle to grave

Familiar happenings rarely a wave

For adventurous souls on the path

Hard to predict next aftermath


As life unfolds note what's true

Don't deny feelings let them through

Honor emotions jumping out front

Denying them growth will stunt


You pay for mobility

A cost to life that's free

Remember where you come from

Mark heartbreaks though not fun


Remember glory and the fears

Remember vision through the tears

Never easy path that's bold

Cherished memories as you grow old


What have been the rewards and costs of things you are proud of because you dived in?

What do you regret more, things you did or things you never tried?

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.
