Some fear what life demands

Taking up their place in the band

Sitting on sidelines observant wise

Planning critiquing heaving sighs


Many spend life being small

Never know how large their tall

Engage now at your pace

Find your capacity and grace


Why just motion day after day

Time to discover your raucous play

Never know who you might be

Posturing while yearning to be free


Humans travel through life on earth

Blessed gifts come with birth

Potential part of god’s plan

Why not realize as much as you can


We have power to achieve noble goals

Beyond limitations you have been told

When opportunity knocks at your door

No feigning shyness go for more


What are the gifts you contribute to others?

How can you share more of your gifts and how have you been preventing that?

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.
