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.
