Fear has a vise grip we cling and hold tight
Muscles freeze up like ice in cold fright
The future looms large the void drives unrest
Uncertainty dominates will I pass the next test
No matter the times we have been here before
The horizon seems daunting approaching the next door
What do we do now where do we go
What is our next step how do we know
One thing is likely as we face the cliff
We go back where we came from after taking a sniff
Look back in the mirror from where you came
What you see behind you takes on a new frame
Why do we do that what holds us back
What keeps us from leaping to the next track
Faith in your footsteps that’s what you need
Trust the next trapeze will catch you indeed
Turn to your future embrace it with joy
Welcome the unknown make it your toy
Fill up the big void with your masterful mind
Leave the fearing whimpering clinging behind
Do you have a next step you want to take?
What kind of fear might be getting in the way?
Does the fear have a concrete basis?
Do you have evidence that whatever risk you are about to take is the best thing to do?
Why not trust that assessment?

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.
