Perspective an important tool
Keeping you from being the fool
When you think things are low
The reality may not be so
Who is better who is worse
Without comparison you suffer a curse
Despair sets in when viewing your plight
Without the glow of perspective’s light
When you are feeling really sad
Remember likely not so bad
Take a walk on a city street
Look around you won’t feel so bleak
Notice the homeless on the ground
Look at tattered vendors among the crowd
See the aged disabled disfigured and such
Realize you’re blessed with so much
The task at hand for you to see
How much you deserve some glee
Do not mope or come unglued
Look at your life and be amused
What’s troubling you right now?
When you compare it to homelessness, war, serious illness does that shift the intensity of your disturbance?
Does the light of 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.
