Where does it come from the drive to create
Remaking anew without a template
Traveling places you’ve never been
Enduring loneliness coming from within
Hearing footsteps of advancing age
Harnessing the energy of internal rage
Giving in multiples to those at your side
Trusting faith through bumps and backslide
The longing that drives and pushes you on
Pulls in directions you’ve never gone
When victory seems an impossible dream
Embrace the process as part of the scheme
When knowing is found in a backward recess
Exploring newness is your happiness
The context of learning facing you east
Each day serving up a delicious feast
Much of the learning growing and thrust
Arises from inside as long as you trust
Following the god down deep inside
Honoring innovation keeps you alive
What motivates your creativity?
Where does it come from?
What does the gift of creating do for you?
For those close to you?
For the community?
When you deny your capacity for creating what happens?
Are there consequences?
How do you suffer?
What do you miss?
Is the denial worth the price?
Why do you think so, or not?
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.
