What’s first on your list and what is last
What’s important abiding what fizzles fast
What gets attention amid all the calling
What stock is rising and what stock is falling
What gets your presence and holds your focus
What do you let go of when there is no locus
What provides satisfaction and keeps you returning
What does your heart long for and has you yearning
What rings the bell of your discerning mind
What fades in the distance and gets left behind
Now that you’ve answered all the above
Can you clearly point to things that you love
May I make a suggestion and be so bold
It’s a smart thing to do as you’re growing old
Every so often and ask
What stays around and what doesn’t last
It’s very important for you to know
So you can fill your life with what makes you glow
For you fill your days with delight
You will sleep soundly and rest well each night
Think about your responses to the questions in the poem?
Do you surround yourself with the things that make you glow or do you have some sorting to do?
Imagine what your life would be like if you were surrounded by what
turns you on?
What is in the way of that becoming your 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.
