The energies are different from left coast to right

Left is more ethereal the right concrete less light

For some of us the choice is clear knowing which is home

Those of us not so sure our destiny to roam


Our lives go back and forth seeking perfect union

When the weather gets too hot we feel real confusion

At some time we do see neither’s any better

Just different in many ways one is dry one wetter


Sometimes inside we fool ourselves by wishing we were “there”

When we forget that happiness resides inside our “here”

Some say it’s maturity that opens our heart

Loveliness on either side and that seems very smart


Just sit back and drink it in fill up to the brim

Enjoy where you find yourself it’s more than just a whim

Send yourself love letters from where you are today

Make sure that you honor each of your yesterdays


Savor nurturing bounty life serves up to go

No beating yourself today for things you did not do

Trust in your emergence be curious inside

Honor the path you travel enjoy your sacred ride


How noisy an internal conversation do you have about the location you spend most of your time?

Do you sometimes dilute your current experience because you are in search of the “perfect?”

Is that inquiry serving you?

What might be a better way of looking at the choices you have?

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.
