Sometimes we’re lucky in our time on earth

After many lifetimes understanding what we’re worth

The idea of only one birth one life seems incomplete

Since life has many chapters each time we grow new feet


Skin we choose to live in constricts who we are

Those that resist growing do not go very far

We have many choices each molt starts within

Shedding a thick cover a door to where you’ve not been


Changing habitual thinking guides your new behavior

First transform the inside then change how you labor

After a short time your life is renewed

When you shed old skin your tether is unglued


This practice I speak of not only for the few

It’s available to anyone who wants life to renew

Step out of your old self leave the old coat behind

Walk for a while buck naked let go chattering mind


You’ll see many choices come up on your screen

As you invent the next scenes of your new life dream

Choose wisely the next context for new lessons to emerge

Take flight and see phoenix arise from what was submerged


How many lifetimes have you experienced?

Which ones have been the most enjoyable? Why?

Which ones the least enjoyable? Why?

Are you ready for another life right now?

What is the vision you have for your next s lifetime incarnation?

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.
