Caught in the fast spinning wild
Internal external guiding the ride
Agitation anxiety angst aloneness
Gripping fear as a thrownness
Even though I have resources
Don’t always stand to powerful forces
Suddenly funk washes over me
One minute coasting the next can’t see
Just when I’ve escaped
Not yet try this on your plate
What caused all the spinning
Approaching my ninth inning
Familial patterns thick as glue
Again home not yet thru
Memories not all pleasant yet seductive
Letting go of what I’m up against
Push and pull in the same breathe
That terrains’ not happiness
Truth I see reverse of sublime
Though longing for sweetness time upon time
What is your experience when visiting family?
Different from what you might like? What are
the expectations and can you let go of them?

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.
