We’re here for lessons our time on earth

We find many blessings as well as mirth

Expanding our knowledge understanding more stuff

As we find balance knowing when is enough


In our bodies is where we understand

Emotions limitations frustrations grand

When we are pure spirit we can choose bliss

Nothing impinges on our perfectness


When we choose incarnation and inhabit a body

We experience things that strike us as shoddy

We learn what it’s like to be trapped inside

Our challenging vehicle we must learn to drive


Our next task is to deal with our brain

How can we master the intelligence game

Then come the hormones that drive us insane

Ending up in hard places experiencing great shame


Finally we start to have some control

Just about the time to take on growing old

It flits by quickly this spark known as living

Enjoy and learn do your best be forgiving


What are the lessons you came here to learn?

Is your life experience providing what you need?

What do you have to do to learn what is essential for you?

Who do you need to be learning with?

How much time do you really have?

Are you wasting it or using it wisely?

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.
