This moment is all no yesterday or tomorrow

The focus now your choice joy or sorrow

Your sweet tears will never go away

The choice stay home sulk go out and play


No one does it for you choose your experience

Transcend confusion insanity indifference

No one delivers your world on a plate

It’s mud or your oyster your destiny fate


Sitting alone waiting for answers

Thoughts of perfection paths to disasters

Stop all your fretting thinking worry

Take hold of your babble done with a flurry


If you are tired and your life looks glum

If all things look bleak and you want to run

Perspective abandoned your life looks black

Take the first step get back on your track


Find your trajectory step into it now

Muster your power stand up somehow

Simple directions do not put them down

Honor their prodding follow them now


Do you know you have the power to make choices at every moment in time?

Do you know you have the power to change your state, your perspective, your mood, your energy?

Why wouldn’t you?

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.
