To keep going in the face of adversity

That is genius

To know your correctness in pursuing a path

That is clarity

To learn from comments and harsh criticism

That is intelligence

To make friends with your detractors

That is magic

To stand fully in your being whatever comes at you

That is groundedness

To keep honoring inner guidance in the face of uncertainty

That is faith

To take care of those around you when you have nothing

That is compassion

To leave more than you have taken

That is balance

To find comfort in your own skin and keep on aspiring

That is the end game

What is the nature of your daily practice?

How does it support the aspirations of what appears above?

What do you think about these aspirations?

How do you feel about them?

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.
