Today it is Christmas day of the Christ

A day of great solace isn’t that nice

The stores were so crowded with bustle and glow

Everyone was excited moving to and fro


The spirit of family moves through us all

The joy and blessing and trips to the mall

Kindness that fills us with pleasure and light

The day is delightful quenching your appetite


There is a window for all to look through

What does your soul say what’s there what’s new

The stockings are filled the earth’s in good cheer

The blessings we feel might last for the year


Now that we stand here alive and well

The joy that is Christmas inside us can swell

It’s not just in lucky ones fortunate enough

It resides in everyone no matter how gruff


As you encounter souls on your path

Reach down inside and make sure you laugh

Today is Christmas celebrate Christ

A day of consoling that is so nice


How do you honor the contributions of others at Christmas time?

In what ways do you give?

In what ways do you give by graciously getting?

Is it a time you look forward to?

What are some of your favorite Christmas memories? Why?

How can you preserve them?

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.
