This moment all no yesterday tomorrow

Focus now choice joy or sorrow

Sweet tears never go away

Stay home sulk go out play


Choose your experience

Transcend confusion insanity indifference

No one delivers your world on a plate

Mud or an oyster select your fate


Sitting alone waiting for answers

Thoughts of perfection paths to disasters

Stop the fretting thinking worry

Take hold of your babble choose with a flurry


If you are tired life looking glum

Things looking bleak you want to run

Perspective abandoned life looking black

Take the first step get back on track


Find your trajectory step into the now

Muster your power stand up somehow

Simple directions do not put them down

Honor their prodding follow them now


Are you clear you have the power to change your state, perspective, mood and energy?

Do you know you can make choices at every moment in time and can choose again?

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.
