The journey we take seeking our whole

The trip our blessing finding our home

Those whose perspective has grown big and tall

That width of perception how we learn all


It marks the beginning a new way of life

Not much is needed when you banish strife

How does it happen how do you find

The healing journey that’s all in your mind


Engage in your process it can fun

Never all better never all done

Like a pilot flying NY to LA

The job in the cockpit correction all day


Perfection you long for not to be found

You’re not a machine perfectly wound

Observe your process understand ups and downs

Find your own answers seek your own ground


Observe the elements keeping you free

It’s always OK be who you be

Get used to change feel growth and pain

Remember the rainbow comes after the rain


Do you see your life as a constantly unfolding never finished project or never reached destination?

Are you OK with that?

Can you accept where you are right now?

Can you forgive yourself for anything less?

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.
