Oh what privilege alive in a body
To feel what is joyful tearful hardy
To have these wonderful tools and sweet gifts
To seamlessly navigate shifts upon shifts
You always have company you’re never alone
You’re very familiar you know who’s home
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 a presence and sense of devotion
We have independence dependence interdependence too
Let’s not forget reinvention it’s part of the stew
Please honor your vehicle let it be your friend
It will serve your needs right up to the end
Cherish with gratitude please treat it well
It’s your magic carpet it will never 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.
