Deeply drawn together quickly pulled apart
The hole of separation completely empty heart
The breathing of another connects you to a source
Life affirming texture that quiets your remorse
Alone is very quiet except for chattering mind
The reverie of oneness life of another kind
We are defined in culture through others we are birthed
In human juxtaposition we find our worth
Take your new found freedom feel it to the bone
Enjoy sudden aloneness though it’s not your home
Find yourself through others let them fill your heart
As you react and interact discover your own art
Do not confuse the being that sits and meditates
With the personality that chooses to relate
The gifts you bring to others take on many forms
Helping you discover the edges of your norms
As your path continues one foot then another
Keep up your relationships with sisters and brothers
The joy and satisfactions that you find in life
Discovered here with others not locked in your strife
Engage be tenacious hold on don’t let go
Find freedom in togetherness as you grow and grow
Others are your teachers others are your friends
Others are the treasures revealing your real ends
How do you think your identity is revealed – by deciding or discovery as you interact with others?
What are the best ways for you to reach out to others?
Do you make it a practice to regularly engage with friends and family
What is the perception others have of you?
What is your identity in their minds?
Do you like what it is?

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.
