Life serves choices you decide
Each fork impacts your glide
One way life sublime
Another tack struggle time
Youth ignore consequence
Don’t think get comeuppance
Karma beyond mortal control
Always reap what you sow
Traveling mind your Ps and Qs
Conscious of lessons choices choose
Stinging outcomes hurt at the core
Reminding you must learn more
Vise of options clenches in its jaws
Blindly barrel give yourself pause
Choose wisely for posterity’s sake
What flows from decisions you make
Pain of others dear
Haunts perspective in your ear
Selfish satisfies immediate thirst
Mindful of fallout avoids the worst
Humanity sets you apart
Beyond instinct compassionate heart
Add self-consciousness reflection too
Abstract thought a complex brew
Time for choosing now is here
Vote for life stay in fear
Best to be your highest self
As fear fades just be yourself
Do you think about what flows from action and
its’ impact on others and your soul?

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.
