What is the quality many desire

Driving our actions making us aim higher

What is the catalyst igniting our passion

Elevating consciousness motivating action


What do we long for what’s in the detail

What must we embrace without it we flail

What quality of living sustains and guides

Who and what do we need on our living glide


It is not who or what it’s mostly attitudes

A cultivated state of mind provides interludes

Larger perspective helps us understand

Another’s expectation of what happens will be grand


Seeing all the miracles that take place everyday

Allowing your deep kindness to come out in the fray

Watching your emotions not getting carried away

Honoring the simple sleep food and joyful play


Listening to the voices that speak quietly

They are your map and compass they will set you free

Choose smiling over frowning hug do not run away

Always abide tomorrow do not dwell on yesterday


What makes you happy?

What do you need to stop doing?

What do you need to continue doing?

What do you need to begin doing ?

What really makes you happy?

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.
