What is your longing dream ultimate vision

What are you searching for wanting with precision

How do you evaluate the things you do

Do they bring you “happiness” to mix in your brew


What is the clear meaning of this ultimate quest

Who is deciding for you what is best

How do you determine if you’ve reached your all

Can you be counted among those that stand tall


Interesting what happens as we advance in age

The nature of our life force transforms our rage

From an internal focus of me me me me

We start to look outward and focus on we


If we get lucky as we march along

Life shifts our perspective changes our joyous song

From focusing on what we realize

The real gift lies in what’s in their eyes


When you count blessings at the end of the day

Measure it by others and their state of play

Those that you care for to whom you give

The quality of your life depends on how they live


What is the quality of life of those you hold dear?

Have you been able to impact their life experience in a meaningful way?

How does this impact your happiness?

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.
