It’s time to celebrate a passage in life

Arrived at a plateau survived all the strife

This is not the first it won’t be the last

When you live fully graduations happen fast


Time for reflection time for sheer joy

Time to acknowledge you’re no one’s toy

Many sentient beings don’t think it’s real

Accomplishing something is hard for them to feel


Please pause a moment drink it all in

You’ve earned it achieved it it’s a big win

There’s something about this one that’s big

Beginning adulthood is a new gig


Responsibility has its ups and downs

The good news you know how to heal other’s frowns

Joyous self-possession is special to feel

You are at the center of for you what is real


Honor this moment mark this slice of time

Let presence invade you be proud “this is mine!”

It’s no small achievement you’ve passed a great test

Take some time to soak in your profound happiness


Have you had a recent graduation of any kind?

Did you take the time to celebrate?

When friends or family have cause for celebration do you honor them?

Is there someone you might celebrate today?

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.
