Source of essence place where formed
Learned habits beliefs observed norms
On a course with their set of things
Programmed before we grew wings
Gracious thanks we owe them
Without birthing we’d have no kin
As we get older awaken grow
We choose over decide our flow
They may resist our rebirthing
Not ready to bless our emerging
That’s when resolve is tested honed
Building character for when alone
Love them anyway
Don’t let resistance in the way
Fear is their holy cross
They would rather be boss
Can you love accept who they are
Honor their treasure though from afar
Thank acknowledge foundation they gave
Let your quest continue seek all you crave
Have you consciously chosen each value, ideal and goal you own?
How would new choices show up in your behavior and activities?

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.
