The voice of complaint chatters loud
Speaks from a place so right and proud
Automatically seeing flaws all around
Failing to recognize beauty surrounds
Wrong with this wrong with that
Talk of what’s missing let’s have a chat
Righteous indignation deep inside
Serving separation feeding pride
What’s the source of backward perspective
Making you the object of such invective
Glass half empty glass half full
You choose the frame which side to pull
Humble suggestion do you see the worth
Notice your blessings while here on earth
Count the goodness you see every day
Sky sun ocean magic in play
Food from the ground touch of a lover
Spark of a kiss mind deep in wonder
Tears in your heart reuniting with a friend
Marking precious laughter rounding the next bend
When a surly voice starts pitter patter
Chase it away grumblings don’t matter
Embrace the infinite lovely surrounding
Live for the joy and blessings abounding
What would you discover about your perspective if you observed your thinking habits regularly?
Do you count your blessings consistently, notice the natural beauty,miracles and people around 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.
