What are the keys to a purposeful life
Where smiles are plenty and there’s little strife
No fear of the future or remorse for the past
A sense of security makes you feel it will last
No busy chatter dancing in your brain
When you are sleeping quiet remains
Those that you love are safe from great harm
Loved ones abound keeping you warm
Your life and nature congruent in step
For favored activities you find lots of pep
The joy of you comes out from inside
Your life is serene like a smooth carpet ride
Smiles on your face reflect your sweet glow
All that surrounds is enthralling you so
Everything reflects what’s inside you
Peace in your heart carry’s you through
Things happening are sometimes painful
Though all you long for drives what is gainful
When you are pulled or twisted by fate
Perspective and awareness fill your empty plate
The greatest battle conquering self from inside
As we take care of concerns we find
If many people all over the world
Could step into this someday out of their swirl
Remembering each day how good it feels
Realizing giving is what is real
Take nurturing seeds and expand your broadcast
Beam them all over and make it last
When you do this our planet will change
All of your cells will rearrange
This simple blessing is here every day
Making each one a shining Sun Day!
How do you make each day a good one?
What are the techniques you use?
How do you shift your focus from yourself to others?
How do you like being focused on others?
What do you get out of it?

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.
