Lovers

We choose our loved ones when we become smart

When we make those choices life becomes art

No expectations of what we’ll receive

It’s all about giving serving others needs

 

For many it is all about lust

No thoughts about honor adoring trust

Other’s are not objects to own or possess

They’re not a tool for your happiness

 

It’s about giving freedom nurturing others to grow

Allowing their full being their presence and flow

Honoring cherishing what passes between

Mysterious emergence creations unseen

 

Allowing caring and being there

Providing guiding and being fair

Hoping for all they can be on this earth

They’re not for your pleasure or your self-worth

 

Be totally present to what they need

Listen for wishes and how you might feed

Respect be tolerant acknowledge their presence

Promote in all ways their profound essence

 

No matter the distance no matter the time

No matter the reason or if there’s a rhyme

The gift passes quickly please pay attention

Enable your loving it’s a noble dimension

 

Are you loving enough?

Can you count the ways in which you love?

Can you add more ways of loving to what you already do?

How might you love differently?

Who else might you love? In what ways?

How about 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.
