Now is a time for changing and seeing

Life’s in the balance for each human being

Listen to signals hear each and every call

Each country and politic heading for a fall


It has not been written in black ink or red blood

If we can’t stay mindful there will be a great flood

To cleanse wash and rid us of the floating junk

If we fail to change we will all be sunk


We can take some action and reverse the slip

The time right now ripe for a philosophical flip

We can change in an instant we can turn on a dime

Holding fast the status quo surely is a crime


Heaven now is ripe it is all understood

Creative ideas are the source for good

Walking among the blessed is not that hard a task

Many all around you look listen and ask


Life holds such sweet nectar for those who truly see

Open your eyes widely don’t let blindness be

Ecstasy calls you softly with each passing breath

Choose your sacred fate now degradation radiant health


What are the calls for help you hear all around you?

How do you respond to them?

Are you satisfied with your responses?

What else might you be doing?

What gets in your way? Why?

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.
