Good to remember a truth of life

We need caretaking feeling strife

Someone there salving the ills

When cold warming chills


No matter how far fast rich

Sentient life’s not always a stitch

Look for balance peace serenity

While being centered and free


Search for warm you can call home

Nurturing and caressing your moan

Quiets yearning fills what’s missing

Provides solace and face kissing


As you go forward growing up

Notice you get filling their cup

Place we long for warm glow within

Comes from giving wearing a grin


Do you feel part of a caretaking circle?

Who do you give comfort to and who do you get comfort from?

Is the exchange satisfying?

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.
