What is our essence our blessed grace

What purpose is served in this human race

What’s our driving reason waking up every day

Underneath the doing what’s our profound play


What is our function that serves everyone

In our never-ending search where is the fun

The dormant glory awakens when we call

Getting here to there how do we have a ball


What taps our unique spirit seeks from every cell

Uses our history makes us feel so swell

Satisfies so deeply we’re so tall and proud

While real thoughtfulness takes care of the crowd


Behind all the answers lies the sacred truth

It’s our earnest sleuthing that keeps us in our youth

Sniffing out solutions is what we’re all about

Tracking down real wisdom with a bloodhound’s< snout


What is it I’m saying what do my words know

Learning is the process makes our juices flow

As you keep cavorting on this meandering path

Keep learning and growing consciousness is your bath


What is the essence of your humanity?

What is the edge that keeps you alive and exploring?

What would you like to learn while you’re here?

How will that help others?

How will that help you?

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.
