Awaken yourself dance jubilantly
Celebrate your enoughness be proud of your "Me"
No more to prove no badge to be earned
Emptiness driving you has all been burned

The gaping hole has been filled with delight
Whatever the mania no more sleepless nights
The missing ingredient driving each quest
Time to let go you have earned a rest

For all the work you have selflessly done
You can let go your self has been won
So many choices you could have made
You chose a path with a very steep grade

Now is the time to reflect on your race
Now is the moment to bask in your grace
What you discovered on your gauntlet through fire
That you are whole and you can inspire

You're more than enough that was always so
It was only you who did not know
Rest easy and sure let your tears dry away
Go slay new dragons with a new sense of play

Have you been working forever with your head down always looking for the next rung or task?
Have you often skipped acknowledging yourself or celebrating in favor of the next mission?
Is it time to give yourself that pat for all the good work?
Do you see enough evidence that you have earned some deserved accolades?
Is there any harm in celebrating yourself?

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.
