What happens to incentive drive to achieve

When you hit a plateau your “get up” leaves

How to stay hungry pointed true north

When cyclical malaise yields empty froth


Do we choose “south” say “that where it’s at!”

Can we prevent or it just happens like that

Must be more vigilant if you want to achieve

Stay active and cogent continue to believe


The world your oyster stay in the game

Remember your talents what to you is fame

Don’t let your unconscious untrack aspirations

Don’t give up your life to others vibrations


Let attractions pull and awaken vision

Constantly renew without indecision

Keep forward momentum alive in your brain

Wield a strong umbrella shielding the rain


When you crumble and life beats you down

Do not change your smile to frown

Keep your eyes True North let it be your guide

Keep strutting your stuff do not run or hide


What saps your energy and enables you to forget who you are and what you came here to do?”

What do you do to reclaim your spark when thrown off track?

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.
