Movement is healthy good for the soul

A quenching tonic for your thirst to be whole

A shift of your energy a shift of your stance

A shift of your footsteps when you need a new dance


You can choose to be cheerful or to be sad

You can choose to be empty or to be glad

Or you can observe what feelings pass through   

Let them fill and empty the chalice that’s you


For sure you’ll have doubting you will toss and turn

Each leg of your journey will teach if you learn

As you search for more wisdom around every turn

It’s in you to access what you need to learn


The lord is your shepherd you’re just one of the sheep

You’ll get plenty of guidance there’s no reason to weep

One foot then another no need for a grand plan

Just start your big journey with your sense of “I am!”


Are you feeling stuck in any area of your life?

What can you change about that aspect?

What small step might you take?

What are some bigger steps?

What do you have to lose?

What might you gain?

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.
