Quickening here now this place

Life in the balance for the human race

Take a chance stand be tall

Don’t wait for others answer the call


Many think someone will save us

It is you if you can be brave enough

Power’s not outside don’t wait for a guru

Face in the mirror the one to serve you


Shoulder the task making community

Therein is strength you will find unity

No savior or north star to guide

Only your heart humanity inside


The human race no dash to be won

Major commitment you being the one

God’s on your shoulder guiding the way

When you wake take her out and play


Hereafter you wait for is here right now

In every tree branch leaf cloud and cow

Night’s not so cold when you you are held

The force in your field not foe it’s a friend


Do the times call for a rescue or savior you’re waiting for or do you see yourself in that role?

What are the areas in your life where you do or don’t take responsibility?

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.
