No greater excitement than at the start
New job team project love work of art
The air of expectancy crackles with life
Creativity’s buzzing without room for strife
The joy that lives in and surrounds all you do
Your life takes on focus purpose renewed
Your brain generator glows sunspots exploding
Caution watch for fizzling or signs of imploding
As you get lift off and grounding traction
Engagement deepens to purposeful action
With awareness of mission in what you’re engaging
Your cellular configuration starts rearranging
Now it’s your turn at the trough of communion
Your presence engages without confusion
The joy of this grace state with kiln-like intensity
Curbs procrastination and self-doubt propensity
I say to you and suggest as a habit
When routine enslaves engage your jackrabbit
Let freshness excite your deep creative spirit
Whatever the prize you’ll surely win it
Do you recall a few projects that energized and engaged you at the beginning?
What was it about them that excited you?
How long did the enthusiasm continue?
What contributed to the waning of your attention and engagement?
Can you see some strategy here that will help you stay engaged?

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.
