Christmas Eve

Today marks Christmas the birth of Jesus Christ

A day for reflection a day that feels nice

A day of remembrance of Christmas past

A day of choosing what do you want to last


It’s a time for charting a course for the year

A time to celebrate joys that bring good cheer

The mask known as sadness can be sent away

As you engage communion on this sacred day


Give gifts to others acknowledge what’s whole

Bless hold cherish be grateful honor each soul

Let your beauty come forth please glow and shine

Let your proud expectations be reflected by mine


Let the joy of community touch your heart with joy

Let the love that is inside honor each girl and boy

Now’s the time for lessons listen to your deep voice

It will tell you next steps then rise and rejoice


Seize your path for the next year let it unfold and shine

It’s yours for the taking take yours I’ll take mine

When we honor our voices and follow our heart

Then we will honor spirit that is noble art


Jesus said we have power god is within

Each and every a deity let yours fill you to the brim

Let your abundant self guide each of your turnings

Let the voice of your wisdom counsel all of your yearnings


How do you celebrate Christmas?

What do you do that fills the soul of others?

That fills your soul?

How do you take sacred time to explore your deepest feelings?

How do you extend forgiveness to others?

How do you cleanse yourself for the coming year?

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.
