Sitting in yes no pondering what to do

Stewing on this that without any clue

Looking for right wrong assessing fault blame

Mulling each detail righteousness shame


Amazing how mind scans judging a whole scene

Quickly saying good bad ranking in between

Sometimes trapped thinking we know

Looking for answers to satisfy so


Does not work that way inside your core

More often you rationalize what you stand for

Once we understand our game then we get to choose

Knowing the wrong mindset will help us lose


Truth there is little truth as objective measurement

Saying this is black or white foments argument

Each of us finds truth we believe is so

Rejecting with courage thinking we know


Many go along accept ways of being

Following herd mind killing much meaning

As you age you get to choose grow slowly die

Now’s time to decide then home to your sky


How have choices contributed to your growth and what have you learned about the process of choosing?

Do you choose again when you make the wrong choice?

Do you have situations that require new choices?

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.
