We go forth seeking our truth
Conquering mountains expending our youth
Joyously giving our all away
As we uncover what makes our day
Searching on mountains seeking in caves
Looking for answers to take to our graves
Where do we find wisdom profound
Up in the air deep underground
After the searching longing and such
Back to the place where we did not know much
In our innocence and naivety
We knew with simplicity
Finally after all of the years
Through joy with laughter and howling tears
Coming full circle knowing what you want
Recognizing yourself discovering your heart
Good fortune of friendships lessons profound
The journey of circles takes you back around
To the place that you knew so long ago
To a home and hearth and the wisdom you know
What are some of the simple things you knew then that you would like to KNOW now?
When did you lose that knowing and what have you done to reclaim it?
Is there anything you would like young people to know about what you have learned and what you knew then?

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.
