Some people fear what their life demands

Stepping up and taking their place in the band

Sitting on sidelines observant and wise

Planning critiquing heaving jealous sighs


Many of us spend our life being small

Never knowing how large is our tall

Engage now at your own pace

Step into capacity your grace


Why go through motions day after day

Never fully stepping out to raucous play

Never knowing who you might be

Posturing hesitating yearning to be free


Humans traveling through life on earth

Blessed gifts come with their birth

Unlimited potential part of god’s plan

You realize as much as you can


We have the power to achieve noble goals

Go beyond limits you have been told

When opportunity knocks at your front door

No feigning shyness you go for more


How much of your potential are you currently using?

What are your gifts…what are the ways you might be contributing to others?

What are the ways you might share more of your gifts?

How have you been preventing yourself from doing that?

How can you get beyond holding back?

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.
