How will you be recorded in the annals of your soul

Do memories warm your heart leave you feeling whole

What is your legitimacy what do you wish for others

How do you serve and nourish your sisters and brothers


Who are your real heroes how have they served their ends

What was the pulse they captured and who were their friends

Where is the light that draws you and what is its source

What leaves you feeling tender leaves you with remorse


Who is the real you in there buried in your mist

Who arises in a crisis with very little twist

Time is running late time to choose is near

Voice your vote for life continue in your fear


Leaders jump onto the stage with clear end in mind

They have goals and visions some want us to stay blind

The games of politicians often are unseen

Real stuff in the backroom under radar’s screen


You get to choose your fate now is it life or death

Of your many voices which brings you true wealth

Wealth that’s of the spirit wealth that’s peace of mind

Wealth that’s noble courage from strength you did find


What would the people closest to you say is your highest and best work:

The thing you give and provide without thinking because it is so integral to who you are as a human being?

Does your current work in the world require enough of your best work?

Imagine if you designed your career around doing your best work most of the time?

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.
