How do we measure the worth of endeavor
How do we balance accounts when we’re clever
The usual measure financial profit and loss
Return on investment the bank account’s boss
What if we looked at other indicia
Such as our caring for brother or sister
Of course we need currency for our supplies
We need much more if we want to live wise
This new comprehensive tallying sheet
We’ll craft and use its gauge as a treat
Measuring the value we bring to people
Measuring the climb loved ones up a steeple
Looking at smiles the faces around
Doing good work we can say we are proud
Observing our human capital account
Seeing it bulge as it grows stout
At the same time our finances grow abundant
Who would have thought we might have fun with it
The lessons we learned as we look back and reflect
It wasn’t so hard and we gained self-respect
How do you measure your own success?
What are the metrics you use to build a balance sheet for your life?
List the particulars you look at when evaluating how well you are doing? Are there things you would like to add?
Do you have the courage to do so?

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.
