Careful of voices questioning you

Mindful of chatter monkey minds pursue

Voices you’re hearing where are they from

What are the sources that make you numb


Meek dears complacent souls at rest

Rarely challenged or goal of self conquest

Bold roam among us seeking something more

Summoning courage doing what they’re here for


Thrusting forward pulled by visions gleam

They too hear voices questioning their dream

Sometimes a whisper sometimes a shout

Demanding vigilance managing our pout


When voices dance in your brain

Say “cancel cancel” no time for rain

Listen acknowledge caution’s concerned voice

Respond mindfully solidifying your choice


Recognize this process serving your desires

Grounds whims fantasies and pure heart aspires

Thank those smart voices causing chagrin

Remember they serve and guide from within


Are you pursuing the dreams of your personal mission?

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

How can you get beyond stories and to 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.
