Agreements abound all over the place

Don’t pay attention conflicts in your face

Guiding grounding focusing collaboration

Producing results way beyond expectation


Expressing joint vision setting a clear plan

Building deep trust for woman and man

Without the gifts of agreements in place

It’s hard to arrive at states of grace


Alone we can’t do much stumbling about

Harnessed in tandem we grow very stout

Hook up your talents to a group and a mission

Marvel at what you get with a shared vision


Building partnerships based on deep covenant

Lights you up with energy so abundant

Get aligned with people at work

Get clear with loved ones don’t be a jerk


Know what you are what you’re about

Join with others stand back and shout

Amazement will thrill and cause great delight

The joy of teamwork makes your life bright


Production beyond what you had in mind

Life force grows in you no matter how blind

Pure satisfaction wells up in your heart

In joining with others your life becomes art


Have you ever thought about the clarity of agreements you have with personal and professional partners?

Look at the relationships in which you have conflict and think about the clarity and completeness of those agreements. What do you notice?

What might you do?

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.
