Helping many others get from here to there
That’s the task we have at hand that is why we’re here
Drawing out their thinking having them reflect
Helping them find places where they intersect
Looking for solutions to what’s in the way
Of achieving their goals even if they can’t say
Forging through the tough zone when it is real thick
Careful not to push too hard or do it too quick
First establish ground rules that helps prevent fights
Understand the sticking points that keep us up at night
Focus on agreement that satisfies them all
After we can figure out what makes them trip and fall
Get them into action engaged with their crusade
Using your whole toolbox from which your craft is made
It is a heart-felt calling that draws us to serve
Sometimes we must do it when we’ve lost our nerve
No greater satisfaction than seeing they’re on track
Not until we’ve served their mission do we turn our back
Where is our next assignment what does god have in mind
Where can we ignite vision when others just go blind
Sometimes it’s frustrating exhausting and unkind
Sometimes there is no time to breathe sit or unwind
In those pausing moments when you’re feeling spent
Have faith and remember giving’s heaven sent
Do you find serving others satisfying?
What in particular feels good?
Do you like to create connection and collaboration in places it does not exist?
Is there a downside for stepping in?
Are you willing to pay the price and do it anyway?
What motivates you?

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.
