Essence of a life that’s human
For each man and woman
Enacting a privileged existence
Uniquely passing between us
Lives we lead such potential
Cherish honor the reverential
Our biological machines a gift
Amazing vehicle always a lift
Ability to think emote choose
Reflect a state of win or lose
Attraction repulsion taste touch smell feel
Experience senses intuit heal
See the missing in cultural mores
Commit to follow a worthy cause
Joy of savoring many flavors
Honor choices minimize waivers
Remorse learning changing doing
Sacrifice for others’ pursuing
Sharing pain of injured others
Tending troubled sisters brothers
Time passages cannot be denied
Careful of arrogant pride
Authenticity draws to our fold
Peace quiet as we grow old
What do you want to experience in human form to have a fuller life?
What is lost if you miss the opportunity?

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.
