The display of our work the fruit of labors
Comes in all sizes all tastes all flavors
Something to look at tells us where we’ve been
Evidence saying “you’re more than a whim”

It shakes and shudders as it’s being born
Birthing sometimes leaves us very torn
Reflecting what’s buried deep down inside
Getting inside outside no simple ride

Displaying to others what lives within
Takes courage persistence diligence discipline
Opening self to critiquing minds
Being prepared for comments unkind

Suddenly you’re not afraid any longer
Bearing your soul makes you feel stronger
Whatever they say whatever they see
Not about you more about thee

Your revelations reflect your holy spirit
Whatever emerges has purity in it
Expressions emerging from your sweet being
Reflects the clear light of what you’re seeing

As you continue in time and space
Do not be disturbed from your own pace
Let your gifts unfold in your special way
Your art reflects god’s holy play

What is the art form you use to share the observations and wisdom inside you?
Do you feel a sense of anxiety or fear about revealing innermost thoughts and feelings?
What is the source of that fear?
What is the potential value and benefit for you and others from your self-expression?
Does that value quiet your concerns?

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.
