Amazing how life takes us to places
From which we never expected graces
Often surprising counter intuitive
Locations provide varietal renewing
Most of us learn feeling life’s tether
You can’t love this and that together
As we age if we’re smart
We chose to follow not “right” but heart
When honest with self
No reason to hate someone else
Usually don’t dislike who they are
It’s what they did their action ajar
Reflecting on our own dis-ease
Their action opposite of what would please
We have a choice in how we react
Hold onto anger use your tact
Though deeply hurt choose to forgive
That noble path teaches us how to live
Letting go continuing love
Mindful connected to godhead above
Are there opportunities for you to choose a greater level of compassion toward others?
Do you understand that forgiveness is more about your letting go than punishing the other?

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.
