The magic gift of tools we’ve invented
Takes care of the menial boredom prevented
It makes life easier in many ways
Medical technology airplane delays
Helps us do things we couldn’t do
Instant research global communication too
Communication feeds democracy ignorance is abated
The prison “lacking information” soon eradicated
As we use this tool caution is in order
Things to keep in mind or we’ll be in hot water!
The first is fairly simple Y2K taught us that
We’re relying on a system that can be a brat
The network can breakdown its subject to sabotage
So we must be mindful or we’ll feel the barrage
The other fear is darker more insidious
About human connection in forms various
Life source is community energy exchange
Electricity of cells and flesh must be interchanged
Remember when you’re lonely plugged into your machine
Don’t relegate live connection to the eros of your dream
How do you use technology, how does it serve you?
Do you substitute your life online with real personal connections?
How do you do that? Do you have “enough” face to face community?
How might you change your habits so you have more live connections with people?
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.
