The vision we have for a life to be born
Awakens each cell gets us up before dawn
Restful sleep somehow eludes
No cause for sadness excitement exudes

Looking forward to what lies ahead
Visions dance and appear keeping us fed
All of the time we’re excited by them
Savoring each moment of now until when

Time is the trickster we’re already there
Although eyes tell us we are still here
Time is a story we learned long ago
Most take it literally you already know

Truth it all happened a long time ago
Only right now you have consciousness so
Savor it now savor it then
When you are through savor again

Someday you realize it’s not what you do
Your “being” is bringing excitement to you
The trust and faith forgiving letting go
Provide permission to allow your love’s glow

What is it that moves you to make the choices you make and take the actions you take?
Do you consciously envision the future and make strategic choices that inform your actions or do you rely on instinct as you make each choice?
Is what you are doing working for you?

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.
