What sources the drive to create

Making anew without template

Traveling places you’ve never been

Enduring loneliness from within


Footsteps of advancing age

Harnessing energy of internal rage

Giving to those at your side

Faithful through bumps and backslide


Longing driving pushing you on

Pulls in directions you’ve never gone

Victory seems an impossible dream

Embrace the process part of a scheme


Knowing found in a backward recess

Exploring newness your happiness

The context of learning facing you east

Each day serving a delicious feast


Much of the learning growing thrust

Arises inside as long as you trust

Following the god deep inside

Innovation keeps you alive


Where does your creativity come ?

What does it do for you, those close and the broader community?

Are there consequences when you deny observations and creativity?

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.
