Now is the time here in this place
All combatants act from grace
The battle joined action noble
Fighting generates deeper trouble
Breach created push and shove
Can we show what we’re made of
Character true character real
Displays in how you teach and heal
Fierce fight fought to the wire
No real winner no one to retire
Combating through venue changes
Players and thinking rearranges
Can we learn from winter’s long night
Will body politic do better than fight
Energy expended in a silly fray
Surely better spent in a new way
Winner and loser very old frame
Time to play a bigger game
This might be collaboration
As the pulse of a great nation
We have tools technology
To approach real democracy
If we do in this century
Many more will say I’m free
Do you interact with people who have political views different from yours?
What do you learn from them and is there a way to be more curious and empathetic with different people?

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.
