Stressing straining seeking stature
Questing others notice I matter
Wanting recognition a sense of fame
Winning at any cost a favored game
Compare accomplishments of others
Compete with sisters and brothers
Take on this take on that
Shout they notice where I’m at
One day wake up in wonder and ask
Why am I doing each lofty task
Moment I realize I am enough
Don’t have to persist in all that stuff
I am worthy deserve happiness
Not about doing about being ness
All my honored goals and positions
Does nothing for real statisticians
Driven by mother father husband wife
Real question “do I have a life?”
Happy is simple kindness warm laughter
Gemutlich secure each day after
Preparing fresh food being close to earth
Smileing companions provide rebirth
Each deserves their own bliss
You’re enough deserve happiness
God gifted nature and your presence
Authentic expression reflecting essence
That is the real gift you bring to earth
That pure expression is your real worth
What are you cultivating?
Do you have to do what you do to get what you want
or is there a more direct path?

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.
