Opening up letting go
Softening heart will let you grow
Embracing others with compassion
A solid platform for new action
No longer gnarling in a tight fist
Suddenly life takes on a new twist
All the new choices laid at your feet
Amazing renewal snatched from defeat
Holding positions traps your whole being
When you are rigid you cannot be seeing
Now is the time for you to begin
Give yourself the feeling of a big win
Let yesterday’s “right” melt inside your heart
Let love melt the barricades that keep you apart
We all get to choose to be happy or right
One locks you in prison the other gives flight
So as you go and as you grow
There is one blessing you need to know
Just give the love you long for yourself
It will return from everyone else
Are there any belief systems you feel right about that get in the way of your capacity to connect and sustain relationships with others?
Are these belief systems moral imperatives or is there room for other equally acceptable realities?
What have you been holding onto that you can easily let go of?
What gifts will you receive?

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.
