No greater satisfaction than digging deep

Expending effort until you fall asleep

A healthy sense of empty when you are spent

Can you see where all that energy went


Whatever pulls and draws you to give

Whatever your gifts they are reason to live

Give of them freely don't hold them back

Especially knowing you're on the right track


What you give freely comes back many fold

The reward consolation as you grow old

In the meanwhile you feel good everyday

Knowing you earned your daily pay


A sense of belonging a deep sense of pride

The richness of knowing you’re on the right side

Others who see know you guide the way

They help reveal you and your holy way


It's not about money recognition or fame

It's not about your ego or name

It's all about giving sharing your soul

It's all about making others more whole


What is the gift that you cannot help giving?

What do others say about the work that you do?

Are there places where what you provide is a valuable contribution to others?

Are there other places it would provide value to others?

Are you clear about what your best work is?

Do you give it freely?

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.
