Be careful of voices questioning what you do

Be mindful of chatter monkey minds pursue

Whose voices are you hearing where do they come from

What are the sources that make you numb


Meek accepting dear ones complacent souls that rest

Don’t understand this challenge no sense of self conquest

The bold roaming among us seek something more

They summon their courage and do what they’re here for


When they’re thrusting forward pulled by visions gleam

They hear doubting voices questioning their dream

Sometimes those voices whisper sometimes those voices shout

Each day demands vigilance to keep at bay your pout


When you hear those voices dancing in your brain

Time to say “cancel cancel” this is no time for rain

Listen and acknowledge they serve as caution’s voice

When you respond mindfully it solidifies your choice


Recognize this process as serving your desires

It grounds whims and fantasies to which your heart aspires

Thank those very voices that sometimes cause chagrin

Remember that they serve and guide you from within


What do you aspire to accomplish?

What is your personal mission?

Are you pursuing those dreams and visions of the authentic self?

What stories do you tell yourself about why you are not on the path?

How can you get beyond those stories and get on with the work of your life?

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.
