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.
