Something happens if we’re fortunate in life

A challenge comes along engaging and ripe

Our attention our focus has somewhere to go

A nexus a locus that we love so


Hours become excited alive

Know what it’s like to fully thrive

Taken by presence that turns us on

Grabbing your being each day at dawn


Look for what attracts gives you a smile

Figure out the tacks walk the first mile

If you’re not lucky nothing’s tapped a vein

Look in front of you never complain


Critical choose your favorite actions

Select wheelhouse projects maximize tractions

The desire you have for tasks demanding and new

Already in sight lines ready to command you


Right before you the answer already there

Speaking very loudly say “I am here”

All it takes to see beyond disguise

Stop look listen open your eyes


How much of your life is filled with projects and people you are passionate about?

Would you like to have more passion in your life?

How will you go about generating it?

What and who do you love working with?

What is holding you 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.
