Ordinary life extraordinary ways
Filled with passion living ablaze
Honoring commitments caring for others
Those around are sisters brothers
No need notoriety or fame
Togetherness warmth without shame
Life simple easy content
Always sure you pay the rent
No majesty bright lights you as star
Equanimity happy where you are
Solid support for your whims
Earthly pride and wide grins
Blessings reach inside you
Soft tenderness comforts when blue
Children’s voices sanctify the day
All platitudes melt away
No pretensions humble heart mind
Aspirations nowhere to find
Wisdom carried sustains everyday
Peace your presence so dance and play
What’s really important to you?
What’s the gap between here and where you want to be,
and how can you bridge it now?

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.
