If only we embraced what seems to be true

You learn so much from me I learn so much from you

At some profound level just right where we are

We are mortal learning machines that have traveled far


Constantly sorting scanning processing

Sometimes being driven by our obsessing

Curious about this and drawn to that

We want to know about intuition and fact


Way more important than facts we look up

How do they relate how do they hook up

It’s about application of the new to the old

Taking what we see having to be bold


This is how progress moves us to new spheres

Keeping us all occupied for years upon years

It’s quite exquisite the way that it works

The capacity to learn a great human perk


When you see youngsters bright and inquisitive

Foster their questions do not be diminutive

You never know who they’ll turn out to be

Einstein, Bell, Edison, Musk or Marconi


What is your current learning horizon?

Are you excited about it?

What’s your favorite way of learning?

Is there anyone you are learning with?

How do you inspire each other?

Did you know learning releases endorphins into your system?

How does that feel?

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.
