Living at times is about testing inner strength
Can I live with abundance and enjoy radiance
There’s nothing bad about material wealth
For many prosperity equates to real health
The idea of suffering poverty starvation
Summon bygone thoughts an ethos of purification
The current era provides a much greater test
Thriving in a world where materialism’s best
It’s easy to be righteous and certain and such
Aspiring to nothing there’s no sense of too much
We live in times of seeming great wealth
Gone from our values the old holy self
Having great wealth giving it away
Sharing with others as part of your play
Philanthropy is measured not by what you save
But on each day how much you gave
Can you stay righteous can you be true
While earning and growing and providing too
That is a test in this powerful evolution
Will prosperity for all be part of the solution
When it comes to business and material things how do you value what is important to you?
Do you think we all have too much or too little?
What is the way you think about possessions and acquisitions?
What do material things provide for you?
What do they not provide?
What might you change in your relationship to material things?

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.
