So many choices so little time

Just a short window reach for the divine

The gamut of life is splayed before you

As you cogitate what next do I do


The glory that’s waiting for you today

It’s not tomorrow it’s here grab the day

Friends don’t have answers you have your keys

When your life beckons get off your knees


Think deeply thoughtfully decide make a plan

And remember only do what you can

Careful of thinking that clouds your brain

Please wear your slicker don’t fret when it rains


Always remember god is in you

Never forsaken no matter what you do

Take heed inspiration from the master’s voice

Do not lose perspective you always have choice


Remember it’s not about yesterday’s child

More about daydreams and at times being wild

Let go of all visions you once entertained

This is all about presence maintained and sustained


What keep you centered and grounded as you make choices about life?

How do those centering forces impact your life?

How do they help you make choices?

What is the affirmation you use to invoke those forces?

What do you say or do in response to your affirmation?

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.
