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.
