Standing at the junction

Making choices sans compunction

What will we choose what is our plan

What direction is best for the human clan


We’ve each had our lifetimes experiences illusions

Somehow we’ve managed to come through confusions

As we sit here in the midst of a millennium

Is there a direction or another pendulum


The choices before us many some bold

Stay the same course strike out of the fold

The tack we choose will impact every day

The path we traverse directs us when we pray


What is your vision your desired legacy

Do you have will or is gold as security

Do you want to be able to say

I had a choice and did it my way


What is the end of a life that is humdrum

You get to the finish and see your end run

You never faced the choices presented

Your vision was never fully fermented


Say to yourself on the verge of new morning  

What is the from to carve at this dawning

Whether it’s money a cause or your art

Make sure your choices honor your heart


When you stand at a crossroads in your life that requires choices and decisions,
what are the values that govern your decision-making process?

What are the factors you look at making those choices?

How do you decide?

Has the process you have been using served you well?

What would you change?

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.
