We live many lives in each incarnation

We try personas and test relations

Some live steady in a narrow sphere

Others question what’s new this year


If you’re unhappy with things as they are

And there is no reason that tells you what for

It might be the person you think you should be

Blocking your essence from being free


Rather than blaming somebody else

Choose something different try a new self

If being one way has you in a stew

Why not just change begin anew


Shed your old skin leave it behind

Rotate brain cells leave what’s worn behind

Step out of the old put on a new face

Goodbye to sad eyes hello to grace


Don’t wait any longer let go of constraints

It’s time to be strong create with fresh paints

Dry tears of suffering self-pity remorse

Chart a new pathway you can do it of course


How many times have you made major changes in your life?

What were the circumstances?

Was the transition difficult or easy or somewhere in between?

What kind of tools helped you make the shift?

Is it that time again?

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.
