It all happens now no future or past
Time is all fantasy an illusory path
Whatever we know housed in our mind
Transpires now though we’re usually blind
It takes place this instant on the head of a pin
Let this realization freeze you with a permanent grin
You hold in your being all you’ll ever know
Discover and reveal what’s been clouded in snow
As you watch the sheep plan save and retire
The common dream theme not much to inspire
All the truths they follow the myths that control
Illusions so fear-based they trample the soul
Enduring strength lets you know what’s for you
Do not measure your value by games they do
You know your own answers know your own path
Following others is a molasses bath
If you don’t heed the warnings or follow your heart
Pure presence falters leading to fits and starts
Live your life from inside where you already know
It’s all in this moment honor now and just glow
How much are you influenced by the hopes, dreams, aspirations, values and standards of others?
How much are you living today for yesterday or tomorrow?
What would your life look and be like if you followed your authentic self?
Can you try it for a day, a week, a month, a year, forever?

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.
