What do we long for what is the search?
What do we observe from our unique perch?
As we venture out each day of the week
Why do we do it what do we seek?
I say we all long for a place in our soul
A place of quiet where we feel whole
Connected to others a family presence
A place we call home that feeds our essence
Timbers supporting stand us straight up
The sense of belonging refilling our cup
Longing and leaning leads to laughing and such
We’re back to center not needing much
Alone can be lonely like stored in a garage
We need support to lift and recharge
When you are sitting down in your cups
Think of who’s missing who you value much
Go seeking the ballast gone from your life
Resist any stewing in your own spice
The moment you cross that chasm of space
Reaching for others delivers your grace
What does it mean to you to be centered and connected?
Do you think it’s important to be centered and connected? Why?
What makes you feel centered and connected? Do you have a quick
way to access your sense of center and connection? In what ways do
others contribute to that?

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.
