What is the connection a superlative force
Holding us together no thought of divorce
Carries us through fire and rain
Offers us sunlight when we’re in pain
Sharing our essence giving us smiles
Listening profoundly for miles upon miles
Joining our laughter bearing our fears
Revealing our scars letting go of tears
Speaking our dreams and what makes us crazy
Losing connection when we get lazy
Counting the years the connection does span
We arrived here without much of a plan
What draws us to others what’s the source of attraction
What fosters connection and gives friendship traction
What keeps us engaged and asking for more
What is the glue that makes us secure
Gemutlich is present the feelings are warm
You trust the engagement from which new life is born
This body that rises out of the connection
Creates in your soul a whole new dimension
Who are the people in your life with whom you share this kind of connection?
Have you acknowledged and thanked them lately?
If something were to happen to either one of you would you feel bad that you had not expressed a sense of gratitude?
By when will you share?

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.
