Giving caring loving them

Filling what’s missing smiling till when

They are assured you will be there

Even though not always geographically near


Sitting on fences projecting self

Trying to give all for somebody else

Looking to fill up their empty heart

Searching for daylight of where to start


The joyous salvation that you can find

The choice that will make up your own sweet mind

You recognize it is not one or the other

In deep heart space they are sister and brother


The glory that’s of you buried so deep

The longing within to please makes you weep

The rainbow at end lightens your sky

The dazzling colors free you to fly


Must you make a choice for one or the other

Would you deign to choose a sister or brother

The love longing to find a feathered nest

Has a mind of its own knows what is best


Let your love seek its end follow its track

Do not control or hold it back

Let your love become as big as it wants to be

Honor that loving let it set you free


Are there ways in which you have tried to limit the love you allow yourself to give to others?

Have the limitations served you in any way?

What do you think would happen if you gave more to others?

Do you think that would be a good investment of your energy?

Do you think it’s a limited resource?

When did you learn to be stingy with your love?

How’s that working?

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.
