Here on earth is where I live

My beings longing just wants to give

That is my wish and my delight

Recognizing that truth causes some fright


It’s been my lesson it’s been my struggle

It’s kept me searching missing the snuggle

I have been gifted in this go-round

With many gifts some yet to be found


The soulful journey that’s been my quest

Looking seeking searching without much rest

Now I am older and wiser and so

The seeker inside still wants to know


The path I travel goes up crashes down

I get so excited then plummet and frown

The joy that resides here escapes in a rush

Then comes the turn inward to tears and mush


But I keep learning and expanding my breath

There’s still much to learn as I conquer myself

This lifelong process is not for the meek

The seeker's journey goes on week after week


What has your journey been like?

Have you struggled, suffered, learned, been joyous?

What do you say about your own progress and the path that lies ahead?

Did you have a choice about your path?

Do you still have a choice?

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.
