Sometimes the vision we have for our path
Others don’t see they may even laugh
Their picture is different it does not intersect
The sooner you know draw back and protect
The pain of not knowing just what they think
Without clear speaking there is no clear link
The sooner the better the clearer the choice
Don’t go to places where you have no voice
We long for belonging knowing we’re home
To find the right place so we’re not alone
Searching with honor following our nose
Sometimes finding thorns sometimes the rose
The essential place we want to respect
Avoid hurting others dampening their happiness
As you move forward down your own track
Stay conscious of others and have their back
Remember the core of your humanity
Nurturing caring making sure you can see
Honor the vision you project inside
Be mindful of differences avoid harming just glide
How often have you pretended that a relationship was compatible when it was not?
What was the real cost to you?
How long did you pretend it was OK?
What did you learn from the experience?
How do you address those situations now?

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.
