What is your heaven what is your hell
You choose your life by where your thoughts dwell
Objective reality is not to be found
Up in the air down on the ground
In any event or life circumstance
Thoughts you choose determine your stance
The perspective you see from engenders emotion
And you have control of this locomotion
You see with eyes and hear with ears
And your voices determine your loves and fears
Is the glass half empty or is it half full
Which way do you see from where is the pull
The choices you make about how you think
Can change your whole life in an instant blink
If you stay present and shift your self-talk
Words you utter will change your life’s walk
Remember your life is truly a dream
You are and you watch the screen
The experience is heaven or hell
Please select wisely the stories you tell
What are the perspectives you bring to your life?
Where did they come from?
Do YOU own them or have you taken them on unconsciously?
Given your power to choose how will you shift your perspective?
What will that mean for people around you?
What might that mean for 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.
