What is the best presence to carry along

Connects you to others plays a sweet song

Embodies aliveness whatever you do

Makes what seems old suddenly new

What engages you deeply with self and others

Connects to a source that provides your druthers

The longing that drives you filled in a minute

All desires subsumed when you are in it

Mindfulness presence honors all beings

Acknowledges humanity tempers all things

Shifts scattered energy requires attention

In this moment transports to another dimension

Why would you choose anything different

You can have a world with what you want in it

By being present to what surrounds you

You receive in ways that create something new

No sitting around feeling sorry for self

Go out and give to somebody else

To manifest what you want to receive

Give it to others you’ll get what you need

How self-oriented are you?

Are you aware of the level of true concern you have for others?

How generous is your spirit?

What gives you more pleasure, giving or receiving?

When was the last time you experienced receiving what you have given? What do you know about the law of reciprocity?

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.
