A wonderful joy deeply felt traction

Engaged by your passion committed to action

Striving towards something bigger than you

Deeply committed heart that is true


It’s not about $$$$ fame recognition

It’s not about you it’s about the mission

Something noble you can’t do alone

Something grabs you deep in the bone


Pulling you forward a vision a dream

Guiding your actions dictating a scheme

The longing in your heart satisfied fulfilled

No time for pining you’re motivated willed


Very compelling what you do each day

The “force” is with you lighting the way

The buzzing inside comes from your source

If loved ones can’t abide let them divorce


Driven by mission and urgency

Your knowing conviction makes you very free

With righteous abandon and lightening’s spark

You’re shining the way making light out of dark


How fully engaged are you with your work?

Have you ever thought about your personal mission?

If you did think about it what would it be?

How close is that mission to what you currently do?

What would it take to bring your work and your mission into alignment?

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.
