Who are you when all goes away
You in your room what do you say
Presence you are when alone
A portion of who you are on the phone
We get bigger when with another
Though not quite as present as with a lover
Around the table where you often sit
The presence you are grows when you’re with
In front of a room teacher in command
The feeling grows bordering on grand
Put you in a hall you get even bigger
In spite of fear that makes you quiver
In a large stadium you must expand
Projecting energy like a band
That small voice inside is magnified so
Your message empowers making you grow
Your unique presence drawn out by others
Your holiness coaxed by sisters and brothers
You may never know who you might be
Let courage inspire and allow you to see
Who are you facing others and how do you show up differently in different contexts?
What context motivates you to be bigger than you think you are?

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.
