Engaged by a project bigger than you

Gripped by production that pulls you through

Longing supplanted by action profound

Thrusting you forward both feet on the ground


Propelled from inside no fear or complaint

Beyond conscious intention pushed from the gate

The calling that’s driving steering your ship

A profound navigator attached at the hip


No sense of tired till you run out of steam

As you push forward living your dream

Pure fascination watching yourself emerge

Smiles enveloping when you’re on the verge


Whatever the destiny that’s been calling you

It’s right in your face no need for more blue

The sense of being lost that had you griped in fear

Fades to distant memory as reward comes near


Do not give up seeking never give in

Never discount what feels like a big win

Honor the spirit that drives from inside

Let it guide and take you on an E ticket ride


Keep intact the wisdom follow spirits call

Honor holy presence it will give you all

Cleave to your mission let all else recede

Welcome the joy of the gifts you receive


What engages you deeply, compels you to dig in and work?

Do you resist or engage?

What kind of satisfaction does it provide while you are working on it?

What vision do you have of what it will provide when it is complete?

How does it contribute to your legacy and mission?

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.
