Now is the time why not today
For things I cherish to come my way
It’s not just the transient that I will get
Deep-seated wants no reason to fret

The joy life offers to your center core
Takes care of needs you need little more
The price you have paid in reflection and search
Results in the seat on the place where you perch

As you sit in a space of purity clear mind
Frustration is gone it’s been left behind
You only trust what lies deep inside
The joy of that gift is shared as you glide

As you go forth continuing your search
Nothing you wish for is beyond this earth
Desires you have for others are rich
For yourself you need only a pinch

As you anticipate glory that’s waiting
Do not hold back and be hesitating
Expend all that’s you give much for free
Without expectation it comes back you see

How do you describe the current status of your life?
How is your life journey going?
Has it been a struggle?
What have you learned on your path?
Are you at a place where your focus is giving back?
Are you still looking first for what you might get?
Do you have appreciation for where you have been and what you have learned?
Have you tried giving without expectation?
What do you have to lose?

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.
