Oh what privilege alive in a body

Feeling what’s joyful tearful and hardy

To have all these wonderful tools and sweet gifts

Seamlessly navigating shifts upon shifts


You always have company you’re never alone

You’re very familiar and know where you’re prone

A comfort that’s heartening warming sincere

One that will be there year after year


No matter what fate serves or stupidity brings

The vehicle we have serves as our wings

We have processors Intel longs for

We have robotics with intelligence galore


We have complexity and the warmth of emotion

We have powerful presence and a sense of devotion

We have independence dependence and interdependence

Let’s not forget reinvention for our relevance


Honor your vehicle let it be your friend

It will serve your needs up to the end

Cherish and thank and treat it well

It’s your carpet ride it never will tell


Do you ever take time to acknowledge and appreciate the extraordinary

tool and vehicle your physical body is?

If you were to take the time right now what would you be thankful for?

In what ways have you neglected this birthright?

What do you need to change about how you treat and care for this aspect of yourself?

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.
