The longer I live the more I know
Sometimes I think I’m just an old crow
At the same time while thinking I am
Lapses and mystery say that’s a sham
Growth and expansion stretching the ends
Simultaneous opposites giving you bends
It leaves me so big and full of myself
Except of course when immobilized and bereft
As life unfolds with mystery and awe
What keeps us alive is the learning and more
When we let go of being so sure
What we don’t know becomes the allure
Wondering inquiring searching for explanation
The aim understanding what quiets frustration
Focusing on what expands our presence
An orientation that keeps revealing new essence
The sweet perfume from new laser-like clarity
While at the same time vaporization polarity
Stay open receptive inquiring and grow
Feed and keep seeking what you cannot know
What keeps you alive, motivated, excited, engaged?
Are you doing enough of it?
What could you do more of to keep you excited about life day to day?
What’s boring to you that you might stop doing?

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.
