What stays what goes
What brings joy what forebodes
Where on the spiral do you find your footing
What do you pray for when no one is looking
What blocks your movement what makes you soar
What makes you flee and bolt for the door
Who is handsome to you who brings a frown
What has you see the bright side what turns you down
When you are lonely who fills you up
Who brings big smiles when you’re in the cups
Who stimulates thinking engages your mind
Who taps creativity what sparks bump and grind
These many questions are essential to ask
As you look for your unique path
Others will say you should not judge
Sorting’s elitist and fosters a grudge
I think our being expresses itself
In picking and choosing what goes on our shelf
You’ll never stop picking so why even try
Make your selection celebrate what you buy
Your choice is never better or worse
It’s only different that is no curse
As long as you respect what’s on their plate
You won’t be held up when you’re at the gate
What are the criteria you use when you sort?
In business? In people? In material things? In behavior?
In character? In politicians? In movies? In reading material?

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.
