This is for certain I can’t ask for more

In this life I’ve been given abundance galore

Friendships lovers some adoring fans

Not much to point to that makes me say sans


Joyous beginnings deep rich ends

Though sometimes the journey tested wits ends

The lessons and searching and inquiries deep

Provided learning with a curve that was steep


I’ve had many teachers standing cheek to jowl

There with the answers always gracious somehow

Mentors take many forms put on many faces

Beautiful ugly they all have their graces


The knowing’s not nearly as fun as the not

To see what emerges is a gift you can’t plot

Standing in silence sitting in the dark

I know I’ll be gifted with a new lively spark


The patience I’m learning deep in my core

Encourages the presence that I came here for

I take what is present holding it as a gift

With a correct translation you cannot have a rift


One foot then the other steps revealing the path

The glow of the lumens provides a sacred bath

Breathe deep hear your calling stay within your own grace

Take in all that surrounds sail through time and space


Life is long for the blessed abundance fills your cup

Quench your thirst seek fulfillment let many voices fill you up

Keep following your heart song let that melody infuse

All thought lines that inform you honor lullaby and blues


Always seek ways of serving those on your path

Let generosity of spirit trump your whisper of wrath

In the end you want stillness quiet peace rest

Always keeping the covenant of doing your best


It’s not about what you accomplish more about who you be

Let your light shine for everyone to see

Smile and laugh let your tears fall beam your presence and be wise

Let the grace that fills your spirit paint scenes filling your eyes


In the end you’ll be happy it is written this I know

The gifts are here for you to borrow yours to have tap the flow

Let walls dissolve before you no more obstacles to navigate

All’s OK precious angels you’re already past the gate


What would be cause for celebrating yourself and your life experience?

What get’s in the way?

What would the celebration look and feel like?

When will it happen?

Who knows how deserving you are and would be part of the celebration? Who else?

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.
