What grabs and pulls at your heart

Quiets creation stifles your art

Sourced from not knowing what lies ahead

Why not celebrate why a sense of dread


Sometimes imperceptible beneath your radar screen

The source of discomfort not even seen

Just sitting there impacting your life

With little awareness this great cause of strife


What is the core of discomfort and pain

What is the process that brings the rain

What wraps you tightly grips you with fear

What holds you back now and next year


The answer is simple the cure is too

Fear of the future not knowing the new

Not sure of consequences or the new acts

So we lock up say “no” to any new tracks


The cure is faith trust in yourself

Your footsteps as good as anyone else

Trust you will guide and lead yourself home

Trust in the sacred you’re never alone


Trust that behind each step you take

A master tactician guides each move you make

As you venture forth on your simple path

Your angels guide you with a sweet soft air bath


Are there things you are waiting to do?

Do you know what has held you back?

Do you like or fear change?

If your life were different in some way what would it look like?

Is there something in the way besides the fear of change?

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.
