As we move through life seeking our center
At first we’re clear it resides in our mentor
Initially parents fill our need
Then it’s our teachers who give us our creed
As we keep learning it shifts place to place
Mostly it’s something outside our space
Religious affiliation and career goals
From nuclear family to friends spouses and roles
A political cause or some kind of dream
Something that’s simple something extreme
Please do take notice that all these things
Each is external to you as a human being
As you keep going and moving about
You keep on learning without a doubt
You come to discover your sacred source
Lives deep inside you can’t get a divorce
Don’t be afraid to follow your heart
There lies the spark from which comes your art
One day you’ll stop seeking external validation
Then you can accept you’re your own inspiration
What provides your ground?
Is it external or internal? Both?
Have you made deliberate choices about your center?
When was the last time?
What did you discover?
How did it inform you about your life?
Did you change anything? Why? Why not?

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.
