Many not sure what to do

Act with haste react sit and stew

Never to bottom never to clear

No time or thought to what is dear


Takes pointed focus a lot of strength

Indecision when your jaw is clenched

When you have misgivings and uncertainty

Hard choosing a course that will set you free


Getting freedom avoiding remorse

Envision consequences before choosing course

Planetary sadness pain that makes you scream

From unfiltered action not attached to a dream


Put yourself in future play out every scene

Embody all the results living in that dream

Get into the feelings all the mental sets

See the place you’ll be before taking steps


Listen to the voices speaking from inside

Telling your truth beyond foolish pride

Rarely about winning simple common sense

Honoring inner world beyond all pretense


Slowly in your cauldron heat and passion cool

Never want to reflect say I was such a fool

Open to your depths let them bubble up

Only your true voice fills your wisdom cup


Are you good at imagining what will follow from a action?

Do you take thoughtful time to listen to yourself and others?

How has that impacted your way of acting in the world?

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.
