Now is all no yesterday tomorrow
You have choice joy or sorrow
Sweet tears never go way
Stay home sulk go out play
Choose your experience
Beyond confusion or indifference
No world on a plate
Mud or oyster select fate
Sit alone wait for answers
Perfection a path to disasters
Stop fretting thinking worry
Quit babble choose with hurry
Tired of life looking glum
Things are bleak you want to run
Without perspective life seems black
Step back to get on track
Find a trajectory step into now
Muster power stand up somehow
Simple directions don’t put them down
Honor their prodding please follow now
Do you have the will to change your state, perspective, mood and energy
Can you make choices knowing you 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.
