Freezes you in terror startles you to stone
Opens eyes to the fact you are alone
Spasms your whole body tightening your back
Screaming deep inside wanting to attack
Aggression surrounds asks for your hand
Think you can fight so take a stand
Steel yourself like girded rock
Inside ticking tightly wound clock
You realize the tension is you
That will not save the thing you do
It’s giving up not doing more
Letting go not being sure
Accept what’s happening in your life
Cycles we go through serene then strife
Recognize you are not alone
A force walks beside carrying your home
When fearful filled with tears and rage
You turn for counsel very sage
Look to heart find spirit inside
Have faith in wisdom trust have pride
Resist temptation to compare your path
You are unique soak in your bath
Trust lessons and what they reveal
Your journey is to what is real
Is the source of feeling incomplete or inadequate left from before you had your own consciousness and will?
Do you need to update the inner dialogue that generates these feelings and forgive yourself for actions based on childhood programming?

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.
