Lose something precious in recent days

Causing pause about mending habitual ways

Inside you lies the answer

You are the source and principal dancer


Something is missing there is a gain

That is the beauty of living through pain

The empty feeling to be expected

After adjustments you’ll be resurrected


Go through the sadness get over the ledge

A much better outcome than to fall off the edge

What you call life is a high-wire act

Takes courage to live that is a fact


So now the answer live fully each moment

One foot then another you’re not overloaded

Remember that god never gives any more

Than what you are able to carry for sure


Keep going out making your mark

Take time to heal be good to your heart

This is the task of modern times

The challenge my friends to keep making rhymes


Have you recently separated from something important to you?

A partner, spouse, job, profession, community, family member?

Have you taken some time to explore the ways you are talking to yourself about what happened and the ways you might learn from the experience?

What are you doing to digest the experience and move on?

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.
