Perspective an important tool
Keeps you from being a fool
When thinking things are low
Reality perhaps not be so
Who is better and who worse
Without comparison what a curse
Despair sets in for your plight
Without glow of perspective’s light
When feeling very sad
Likely it’s not so bad
Walk on any urban street
Look around don’t feel so bleak
Notice homeless all around
Tattered vendors in the crowd
Aged disabled disfigured and such
Realize you’re blessed with so much
Task at hand for you to see
Your privilege deserve some glee
Do not mope or come unglued
Look at your life be amused
Comparing your life to homelessness, war or disease does that shift the intensity of any disappointment?
Does perspective provide a new view?

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.
