When you are in the now energy is so serene

The calming of art and the focus of a light beam

The value we bring the potential so strong

Time to realization may not be that long


Time for expansion of the work to abound

The value of structure for me so profound

On the verge of this new partnership

What will emerge on our great ship?


I’m willing to push from my end

Though that habit has not always been a great friend

Pushing the edge I sometimes wilt

Though I rise to the top through settling silt


The good news I can reach the shore

If I let go of armor and reach for more

After the struggle the push and the strive

I don’t know how I’ve stayed alive


As I look out for what’s next

Thirty more years how can I be my best

I will not go out in flames aglow

I’ll pass quiet in the night with what I know


The heart has the answer no place else to go

It’s smarter than head knows more it’s a pro

The organ of choice for the next generation

The big body pump without hesitation


Where do you look for real wisdom, your head or your heart?

What is the difference for you?

What is a more reliable source?

What is the qualitative difference?

Why do you trust one or the other?

How do you access the best answers?

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.
