So many choices served up by life
Do you go left do you go right
There is no answer that’s always true
Give up something get what calls you
Mulling each revision
Onward upward quest a gold ring
Home and hearth what is your thing
Words on this page make sense no doubt
Unfortunate they won’t figure it out
No equation adds all the wedges
Weigh consequences stretch to know edges
In the end you feel some pain
No matter newness potential or fame
In making choices let go move
Something missing that you must lose
Going forward you carry pain
It is with you no matter the gain
Sentient beings discovering worth
That is part of living learning on earth
Transitions are part of the game
Tested by lonliness tears fame or shame
Some simple answers are clear
Others sit pondering year after year
Allow your voices listen to heart
Paint your canvas live your art
In the end go to the grave
With all you received and all you gave
When did you leave someone or something behind and how did you feel?
How did you process it and what did you learn?
How did that learning inform future passages ?

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.
