The gift of giving the joy and thrill
Stimulation derived exercising your will
The intention present from the front of the room
Everyone hoping you will generate zoom
The learning that happens for them and you
Fueled by being spent and free of gloom
You are required to stand up in front
Even on days you think you won’t
It’s not simple business not easy at all
It takes all you have then asks for more
Though you fear the words won’t come at all
It gets more thrilling when they give applause
When they are learning your heart truly sings
Especially when questions make your bell ring
The gift of giving the joy and the smiles
You have changed lives that satisfies deep inside
It’s part entertainment part theatre sublime
It asks everything and gives back ten times
The rush of adrenaline no matter how tired
When it’s showtime in Kansas you will be wired
Are you now or have you ever been a teacher?
What was the experience for you?
Regardless of what your job is today can you hold yourself as a teacher / educator within it?
How might it feel differently if you did that?
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.
