Our essence and blessed grace

Purpose served by the human race

Driving reason waking up every day

Underneath doing our profound play


Function serving everyone

Ongoing searching there is the fun

Dormant glory awakens the call

Here to there having a ball


Taps the spirit of every cell

Discovery makes us feel swell

Deep satisfaction tall and proud

Taking care of the crowd


Behind the answers sacred truth

Sleuthing keeps us in our youth

Sniffing solutions what we’re about

Tracking with a bloodhound’s snout


What I’m saying my words know

Learning makes our juices flow

Cavorting a meandering path

Learning is the sacred bath


What is an essence of humanity that keeps you alive and exploring?

What would you like to learn while here and why is that satisfying?

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.
