Now is the time today the day

For you to let go of what gets in your way

So long to fear good-bye resentment

Here lies the key to forever contentment


It’s about you what you choose to do

It’s not about them what they’re going through

Let go what your holding set new intention

Lighten your load for your new direction


What you hang onto does effect you

Firing your endocrines making your blood boil too

Impacts your health and your decisions

Then you spend time revising revisions


Look at this suggestion deconstruct it quite closely

Then you will know what it’s about mostly

When you say slowly the word forgiveness

Out comes the phrase for give ness


Here is revealed the truth of the matter

When you are for give ness hearts pitter-patter

It takes care of you it takes care of them

You get renewed and start over again


How do you hold forgiveness?

Does it benefit you or them?

Are you sure?

Can you hold forgiveness as a gift you give yourself?

Why not?

Do you know that forgiveness is the letting go of the situation?

Why not try it and say goodbye to a difficult situation?

Notice how that restores your health?

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.
