Are you ready to let yourself be known

Sharing conversations showing you’ve grown

Stopping the hiding from fear of being put down

Speaking your truth moving town to town


Trusting inner wisdom honoring your truth

Smiling at rejection mentoring youth

Defining ambition on your own terms

Fighting big battles by sharing your words


Letting go of illusions others hold dear

Bringing to each day the best of good cheer

Making sure loved ones close at your side

Are keeping pace no drift or backslide


Trusting faith will be there with you

Comforting losses carrying you through

Providing incentive when not sure what to do

Giving life meaning when it’s a swirling stew


If you say yes to all the above

Its very clear god has honored your love

Take this precious presence with you everyday

Fostering wisdom leading you to play


Remember it’s not what you own on this earth

That identifies you and measures your worth

Take stock of the treasures of what you think

Teach them to others with a nod and a wink


How do you feel about the messages you craft and send to the world?

Are they an extension of yourself or do you hold back?

Do you know what prevents you from fully sharing yourself?

If you did know what would it be?

How might you step beyond the resistance?

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.
