Find self in unions boundaries define
Engage with others you see the line
Tightly bonded to someone else
Experience teaches you discover self
Often driven by fear not play
Get close to others run away
Fear of losing self identity
Drama pushes you and me
Want to fully explore
Merge with others be reborn
Boundaries keep you apart
Remember share a joyous heart
Faith courage guide discovery of you
Through life entwine others too
Survive unions in which you melt
Realize bounce back discover self
Tension forced you to express
Uniqueness making you yourself
What emerges as you remain intact
Never bow to another’s act
Listen speak see you emerge
Notice birthing power surge
Counter-intuitive to what you know
Own your essence engage and grow
Have you learned about yourself engaged with others?
Given we discover ourselves in relationship,
who do you choose to be with and how do they support self-discovery?

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.
