What is the learning life takes us through
Moving to places in search of the new
Learning inspiring our rebirth
Reflecting what’s inside contributing worth

Longing for peace routine thoughtfulness
So hard to find on a plane of remorselessness
Children have lost their sense of play
Seems that the world rearranges each day

Achievement and income drive our world
As many seek solace from the mindless swirl
Changes come fast changes so deep
Changes on changes hamper our sleep

Longing for belonging in a world in motion
We’re driven to clutching what calms emotion
Any myth of control and knowing what’s so
Again and again we’re forced to let go

If we can emerge from a chrysalis state
We might see our world with a clean slate
Remember sometimes you can’t see the plan
So trust and let your faith reveal what it can

How do you maintain your faith in the contemporary world?
What do you find challenging?
What throws you off center and makes you wonder is it all worth it?
What puts you back on track?

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.
