John’s poetry emerged from his insatiable desire to understand the nature of existence.
Poetry drove John to step into spaces of continuous contemplation, as naturally as you or I would take our next breath.
Early in his life’s journey, John seriously considered living alone in the caves in Hawaii, spending his days and nights writing poetry. The more he contemplated himself and the mysteries of the universe, the more he realized how much greater value he could create and how much more interesting his poetry would become, if he chose to write as he built a life within society, instead of apart from it.
While John set out to serve through connecting with others and build businesses, he always maintained his love of writing poetry – taking all those who read his works, on his journey into the expansiveness of the Universe – exploring his conceptual experience of ‘GOD’.
Much like his mentors Gibran, Rumi, and Tzu, John’s poetry is rooted within a quest to understand the infinite oneness that exists within everyone, everything and every moment.
On his journey to conquer the world with love, he has written two poetry books, and published a remarkable bestselling book series, Thank God I, which has published hundreds of authors, and garnered glowing endorsements from Chicken Soup for the Soul creators, Mark Victor Hansen and Jack Canfield, as well as Joe Vitale, Barbara De Angelis, Stephen Baldwin, Marci Shimoff and many more.
