Some point on the line of living
Life slows to a sense of forgiving
Forgive me this let go of that
Plodding forward on jagged track
Not easy gets more complicated
Moving along sometimes belated
Clarity comes after the act
Understanding after the fact
That trick simple mind plays
Trodden path counting days
Don’t have forever here on earth
Birth begins dying no matter worth
Happens inside some point in time
Body fails we lose brine
Muscles weaken hearts flutter
Speech slurred eloquent stutter
Days become numbered bodies get thick
When we reflect it’s gone by too quick
Thinking back on youthful reign
Remember pleasure when faced with pain
Endurance focus joy in this place
Provide footholds on your path to grace
Remember pleasure not what to expect
Let joyous giving salve each sense of regret
Do you know that holding onto a past betrayal you suffer the consequences of stress?
Do you know the letting go of forgiveness is a gift to yourself you can do unilaterally?

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.
