The coming together of people and places

Being surrounded with familiar faces

We do not have much in common today

It’s about remembering what we had yesterday


In a world fixated on progress and growth

It’s important to remember your loyalty oath

It’s not all about what you give to them

It’s their gift to your being and remembering when


Honoring history and where you came from

Seeing your life through the lens of someone

Honor the past and look to tomorrow

Be in the present and minimize sorrow


What’s said above is sacred no doubt

When we get smart that’s what we find out

Please thank and honor the part they play

Their presence helped show you the way


About loving learning living leaving and such

The contribution they made to your being was much

Without them we don’t get to be you or me

In being them they helped us be free


Who do you stay in touch with that keeps you grounded in the past in a healthy way?

What do those connections provide?

How do they contribute to your current life?

Who do you need to spend time with to help remind you who you are?

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.
