What is real beauty what has that sheen

More likely in nature than some man-made scene

A sense of aliveness authenticity projected

Poised and assured seldom dejected


Proud with resolve on a path with a mission

Steadfast and earnest no sense of contrition

Telling its truth without compromise

Pure as the moon sundown or sunrise


Moving like a cat stealth and feline

Scent like a rose smooth like fine wine

No unclear vibration comes from this source

So clear with itself there is rarely remorse


Drawing all with attraction it is its’ own source

Always having answers and a sense of “of course”

Clear about values what’s wrong and right

When there’s uncertainty at least there’s insight


A pleasure to be with a thrill to observe

Not often can you say it’s lost its nerve

Exciting to chronicle the wisdom it holds

With lessons forthcoming to help you grow old


No need for seeking its presence enough

It’s pure in the moment strong but not tough

It’s there to admire and does not need your “yes”

Its’ being inspires that you must confess


Not easily captured you cannot subdue

Plugged into its own well it drinks its own brew

Honor its’ being just let it flow

Slip into its character that will help you grow


Don’t try to be it just model the essence

Try to be like it and its holy presence

Take on its freedom and self-assured ways

Beauty’s your beacon in a world filled with haze


What do you consider beautiful?

What makes it beautiful to you?

Who do you consider beautiful?

What makes them beautiful to you?

Do you acknowledge the beauty?

When was the last time?

Do you acknowledge in a way that motivates without embarrassing?

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.
