What is it that drives guides us and directs
Sets our intention when we’re down resurrects
Shapes the foundation of projects we choose
Picks up our spirits when we have bad news
It is so much bigger than our small selves
Something eternal pulls us off our shelves
Goals we commit to promises to others
We’re a link in a chain of sisters and brothers
Working alone deeds reflect our own stance
Choosing moves mirror our very own dance
When you widen the circle expanding your reach
Then comes the real joy to learn and teach
Capacity expands results multiply
Joining with others you reach toward the sky
What we owe them is what they expect
They are entitled to promises kept
Where this points you as you sit and reflect
Stay conscious of promises at your peril neglect
Others rely on what you say you’ll do
Honor self-worth and to others be true
How conscious are you of the promises you make to others?
How often do you fail to deliver what you say you will?
Do you renegotiate the promise before the performance is due or do you
just deliver when you get to it?
How do you think that impacts your reputation? Your integrity?

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.
