Anxious nervous inside
Feeling helpless run hide
Sense of danger here before
Primal fear through that door
Essential discernments to make
Fear about now or an earlier take
What perspective do you choose
So fear is not perennial blues
Words for fear welling inside
Do it anyway fear is a guide
Thank the fright a warning sign
Wake up pay attention to mind
Warning from a historic past
Primitive guard helped you last
Feelings not all about now
In the body reflect slow down
Fear an ally welcome old friend
Demands attention for the next bend
Learn to trust fear is a tool
Honor it manage it suffer no fool
What are you fearing now?
Can you treat fear as ally and friend helping you achieve a desired end?

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.
