What holds us together defines who we are
Without this essential presence we don’t go very far
It’s part of our design down at our core
Alone we can’t do much with others we soar

We are social beings needing the company of others
We need to work with sisters as well as our brothers
When we are isolated we grow cold and quiet
Engagement with humans is our healthy diet

When we withdraw and live isolated
We lose touch with ourselves and become frustrated
Others enliven draw us out and define
Bringing out our essence helping us to shine

Emerging between us is the spark of life
Like egg and sperm or husband and wife
Energy birthed from sacred hearts connecting
Missing when we separate and we are defecting

It’s not only what you do that defines who you are
It is who you do it with that takes you very far
Look for the connections where you can plug in
Joining sacred others gifts you with a big grin

Who are your favorite people to connect to?
What is it about being with them makes you want more?
What happens when you are together?
What sparks are created?
What is produced by the connection?
What are you left with? What do you give? What do you receive?

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.
