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.
