Searching for meaning connection grace
Hunting your longing seeking your place
Speaking to this “one” and that “one” who knows
Looking for answers in all sorts of prose

Feeling exhaustion from running around
Fearing connection will never be found
Just when you think you cannot win this race
Destiny surfaces lifts you into grace

All of a sudden a connection within
Your footsteps encircle the place to begin
Finally plugged into your central source
Your longing came from an internal divorce

Placing your answers outside yourself
You put reliance on somebody else
Brothers and sisters do not have your answers
Constant deferring lead to disasters

When you finally know “your guide is inside”
You can stand tall step into your pride
The voices you consult your own private god
Have waited with patience for your knowing nod

Have you discovered the real source of your own power, your central core?
How does it serve you? In what ways is it a resource?
How has your center informed your life?
How has it impacted your way in the world?
Your self-concept?
What challenges has it presented? What learning has it facilitated?

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.
