What drives guides directs
Sets intention when down resurrects
Foundation of projects we choose
Uplifts spirits when there’s bad news
Much bigger than small selves
Eternal pulls us off our shelves
Commitments goals promises to others
Link in a chain of sisters and brothers
Actions reflect our stance
Choosing steps of a personal dance
Widening circles expanding reach
Opens the joy to learn and teach
Capacity expands results multiply
Joining others stretches you to the sky
What we owe what they expect
They are entitled to promises kept
Where this points as you sit and reflect
Stay mindful of promises at your peril neglect
Others rely on what you say you’ll do
Honor self-worth to others be true
Are you conscious of promises you make?
Do you renegotiate before performance is due or deliver when you can?
How does that impact reputation and 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.
