What is your quest while here on earth

Why incomplete from your very birth

Right here’s where we sit trying to know

Certainty evading as thoughts refuse to slow


We search for answers for a vision that’s clear

The job of the seeker to know what’s in your ear

We long for moments when we can be still

Not worrying about needs we might not fill


Where is our place on this sacred rock

We want it right now no more time on the clock

A half that is missing a part you might fill

A partner whose presence bolsters your will


Here on this journey this traverse called life

There is so much suffering amidst all the strife

It’s not for the timid the weak or the slow

It’s for the strong who can make a go


Right in the middle of all this pain

Amid all the angst what is your gain

You have come through all the traps at your back

Keep looking and searching for the su wen synapse


What is the path you have been seeking?

What has been missing?

Have you had a partner on the journey?

What have they provided?

How do you find strength when you feel depleted?

What keeps you searching and hopeful?

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.
