Sometimes gripped by fear

No matter accomplishments every year

This time land on our face

This time we’ll fall from grace


No matter success we’ve had before

No matter times through a door

Is it real what we’ve done

Can we think we have won


Don’t let me slide from favor

What forces can serve as my savior

Don’t let me tumble from success

I need guidance from helplessness


Longing for something real

Wanting aliveness and to feel

Fear part of the great mystery

On the path to being free


Longing solace reverie real

Rest reflect form my own keel

Apprehension a strong motivator

Catalyzing action making greater


Why fear no matter how many times you have done it successfully?

Irrational mind speaking or real impediments to success?

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.
