The quest on earth
Incomplete from birth
Here want to know
No certainty or thoughts slow
Searching for a vision clear
Seekers work what’s in your ear
Long for moments when still
Never worried you can’t fill
Where’s your place on this rock
Want more time on the clock
Missing part you might fill
Partners’ presence bolsters will
Traversing journey called life
Suffering amidst strife
Not the timid weak or slow
It’s the strong making a go
In the middle of this pain
Amid angst what’s your gain
You’ve come through many traps
Keep searching for new synapse
What path have you been traveling and what’s missing?
How do you find strength when depleted and what provides solace?

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.
