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.
