Ray Justice has brought a whole new orientation into my thinking, and the way I interact with people. He is blessed with unique gifts and has been one of the most enriching experiences of my life.
Ray constantly thinks about ways to inspire people to think about the unfettered possibilities of living a life with a higher purpose. I am frequently amazed by the vivid explorations of his mind, and the ideas and inspiration that flows from them. His peaceful bearing, expressed in his poetry, is so refreshing in a turbulent world. Raymond’s Brain is one of the most fascinating, most creative, and curious, most inspiring places in the universe.

There is something magical with Ray’s writings beyond some of the stirring poetry. The language, the rhythm of some of these poems draw the reader in, and there is a corresponding sense, at a soul level, of something wonderful stirring to open the spirit. Beautiful.

Rev. Lou Vasile
Ray Justice’s thoughts are not restrictive or narrow and he understands change is not static. We have been friends for over 45 years. In that time, I have grown to appreciate Ray’s remarkable ability to approach life calmly and creatively. His inner spirit is reflected in his poetry as he understands that it’s about relationships, not rigidity.
One of the most creative, energetic, compassionate people I know, Ray has had a series of experiences that melt into his poetry, and that grows from his heart. He has a rare gift to put into words the sentiments of generations of the human race. He is also the most spiritual person I know. When I think of him my thoughts are of "Happiness, Peace, and Thanks".

He has a way of looking at things with a fresh idea, an unheard of solution, or a new approach. Ray is a master at evoking positive change, and has been a wonderful influence in my life. He is a very gifted coach, and for him, it comes very naturally. He is a brilliant, unconventional, laid-back, very successful entrepreneur and extraordinary human being. He is my “guru” and most trusted advisor in business and life.

The first poem Ray shared with me over lunch many years ago is, to this day, still my favorite. In a crowded restaurant, I asked him to read it aloud. It spoke to me immediately, and simultaneously invited me to explore its meaning further. Ray Justice is deeply curious about the human experience in all its breadth and depth. His poetry is both intimate and universal, attuning to the wonder of human connection, in its joy and heartache, and fragility and strength.
Today working with my counseling position, the poem reflects the simplicity and complexity of relationships, what we each bring and what we long to experience. In very few words, the poem opens us to risk and vulnerability, love, and loss... our human longing to be seen, to be treated with tenderness and to be loved into our fullest selves.
p.s. The first poem he shared with me; the title is “Trust.”

One of Ray Justice’s many strengths is that he challenges you to rethink the conventional way of solving a problem, often helping you to see a new way to view or solve your situation. His real brilliance is getting you to truly understand your opinion or position and how others may perceive it. He lives by constantly learning new things with excitement, and curiosity.
