Choices we have choices we choose
Choices we make say win or lose
It’s how we frame questions we ask
How we determine to see the task
The music we dance to sounds in our head
We are conductors controlling what’s said
It’s not really random not random at all
The way we hold things says soar or fall
The smart ones know what to do in the whirl
The brilliant know what to think in the swirl
It’s how we approach stuff the perspective we create
We get to determine dismal or great
The journey we live out on this earthly plane
Marks our existence when we’re done what remains
We get to make choices when we stay awake
Choices shape us our life they make
Always remember you have control
Choices determine how you grow old
Stay mindful aware of cause and effect
Perspective of seeing provides happiness
Is your glass half empty or half full?
How has your perspective been shaped by the significant events in your life?
Were they confirming or disconfirming?
What were the choices you made leading up to or after these major events?
Have you ever reflected on the continuing impact created by new perspectives based on current reality?

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.
