Essence of life that is human
Gifts to each man and woman
Enacting our privileged existence
What’s unique passing between us
Lives we lead have great potential
Cherish honor be reverential
Biological machine we inhabit a gift
Extraordinary vehicle giving us a lift
Ability to think emote choose
Reflect sense win or a lose
Attraction repulsion taste touch smell feel
Experience senses intuition heal
Often sharing pain of others
Tending injured sisters brothers
Remorse learning changing doing
Sacrificing for others pursuing
Strong emotions draw others to our fold
Peace and quiet when growing old
Recognize what’s missing in cultural mores
Committing selves honoring cause
Richness of time not to be denied
Careful engaging too much pride
Joy from experience savor all flavors
Making choices minimizing waivers
Are there things you would like to partake of while in
your human form to give you a fuller life experience?
What would be missing if the opportunity was gone?

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.
