Think you have a free ride
Think you could easily slide
Think you could escape your end
Think life would be your friend
Quiet delusions put us to sleep
Privileged hiding need to weep
Longing that we all share
Without sacred little here
All pay taxes one or another
Life has tolls pay go under
Passage to the other side
Can be graceful generating pride
The price we pay as we go
Costs discern what we know
A tax in return for learning
We pay to cool the burning
Know when you begin to live
Treasure in what you give
Honor friends in your hive
Their nectar keeps you alive
Do you grumble about life’s tolls?
When you factor what you receive does that quiet the chatter?

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.
