What are your riches what is your gold

What will be your solace when you’re growing old

What will give you a big smile

What will comfort you for a while


What gives you lasting divine pleasure

What does your heart sincerely treasure

What is your sacred desire

To what do you really aspire


What engages all your passion

What makes you give without ration

What do you count your blessings

What do you do when others mess up things


When you have answers to the above

You’ll have delight and be in love

Deep down it’s not your bank account

They do not make a difference no matter the amount


Money’s not the end it’s a means

That helps you accomplish other things

It’s a tool you can exchange

Used wisely giving you broader range


It fuels your projects and your vision

Helps you move with great precision

It helps facilitate your own sweet plan

For giving to the family of man


What are the things that give you the most pleasure?

Are you spending enough time engaged in those activities?

Do you have enough of a sense of gratitude about the gifts you can provide for others?

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.
