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.
