No greater joy feeling of peace

Serving another provides release

Moving you from thoughts of self

Compassion for somebody else


For mothers and infants this is a given

Hospice folks how they make their livin

Letting go of all they need

Forgetting all personal greed


Stand in shoes of a friend who’s down

Care for their concerns without a frown

Let compassion become your driver

Alive in you a new striver


Quiet reverie your priority

Don’t even think just do and be

Some get the lesson early age

Some live life allowing rage


Simple truth here on earth

Service quickens a rebirth

Don’t sit around focused on yourself

Look at your circle who needs help


How much of your day are you focused on your needs?

How much of the day are you focused on others and their needs?

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.
