Today is the day no time to waste

No dress rehearsal time to make haste

Potential greatness lies within you

Trust that your faith will see you through


No time for whimpering or indecision

No time to make more tiny revisions

It is all inside you just let it out

Out of your own way allow yourself to shout


The message you live with yours to deliver

No fearful chatter thwarting you as a giver

The world needs your gifts can’t wait for tomorrow

Please find the way now beg steal or borrow


If you join with others in healthy union

The mission will bathe all in holy communion

Please join your forces with people beside you

Take your next steps allow conscience to guide you


The glory is here yours for the asking

Follow your path you will be basking

We all have our mission that’s part of the plan

We all come with gifts for our human clan


What is the gift you came to deliver?

What else do you need to deliver the full value of the gift?

Who do you need on your team?

What will they do?

What will you do?

What does it look like?

What does it feel like?

What are you waiting for?

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.
