Deeply drawn together quickly pulled apart
Hole of separation completely empty heart
Breathing of another connected to a source
Life affirming texture quiets all remorse
Alone very quiet except for chattering mind
Reverie of oneness life of another kind
You are defined in culture and through others birthed
Human juxtaposition where we find our worth
Take a new found freedom feel it to the bone
Enjoy your aloneness though it’s not your home
Find yourself in others let them fill your heart
As you react and interact discover your own art
Don’t confuse the being that sits and meditates
With the personality choosing to relate
Gifts you bring to others take on many forms
Helping you discover edges of your norms
As your path continues one foot then another
Keep up relationships with sister and brother
Joy and satisfactions that you find in life
Discovered with others not locked in their 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
Is your identity revealed by deciding or through discovery as you interact with others?
Do you closely engage with others and what is your identity in their minds?

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.
