Life is a dream state know what I mean

We’re all engaged in fantasy choosing what is seen

Whatever we are viewing is what we project

What it is we’re missing is our own neglect


Things we aspire to and things we treasure

Are at our own fingertips when we desire pleasure

We control our essence our deep core of light

We have what we choose because we think it’s right


The roar of our greasepaint and smell of our crowd

Maintains our focus our performance makes us proud

The core of our learning as we move on

Comes from reflecting on what’s come and gone


We hear our own footsteps as we’re growing old

When we fear our safety and start feeling cold

The risks we took in youth

Easier when we quested for truth


And as you aspire seeking out your ends

Huddling with family and knowing real friends

Remembering your essence remembering your dreams

Do not ever let them go let faith provide the steam


Do you believe there is some fixed objective reality or do you believe there is some element of a collective dream state we have all bought into?

What does your response inform you of in terms of your sense of control and free will?

How much of your world reflects your personal dream state?

How much do you want to change that state?

What’s in the way?

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.
