Right here in this place

I persevered own my grace

Journey long tumultuous painful

End result apparently gainful


Why alive what are we here for

How do we make our days count more

On this earth beyond accumulation

Can we find lasting elation


Things have value they do call

Not meeting needs leads to a fall

Take care of business free your mind

Contemplate what you long to find


Inner journey what life’s about

Revealing the power of your shout

External experience provides context

Don’t fool yourself caught in excess


How to shape what you might do

Ask your heart it will tell you

No giving in to doubt or fear

Honor grace salvation near


What context does the voice of your heart provide?

How often do you listen?

What calls your attention?

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.
