What grips and holds you in chains
Afraid to move forward though so much remains
Caught in a down spiral free falling in space
Never quite fitting hard to find grace
Limbs splayed wide open braced for the worst
Deep in your throat a dry sense of thirst
Terror surrounds you there’s little respite
Not even in slumber do you escape fright
Eyes wide open as you hit the ground
It suddenly all stops and quiet abounds
Silence surrounds you it’s still and serene
Quiet arises from deep in your dream
What was it that grabbed held you like a vise
What thought form entrapped turned you to ice
What longing what’s missing what open deep gash
What was so devastating it caused you to crash
If you are lucky and fortune shines bright
If you surrender you will see the light
If you let go of your fixation’s ride
Emerge from the tunnel on the other side
Out of the channel the light is profuse
Wake and discover your own new truth
The journey you live each day in your mind
Is a choice choose wisely god is at your side
Have you ever realized how much of your mood and perspective is a direct result of the nature of your thinking?
What have you done with that insight?
Is there a place in your current life where reframing your thinking might provide a rebirth?
What is it?
What’s the new thinking?

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.
