Opens your eyes to the fact that you are alone
Spasms your whole body tightening your back
Makes you scream deep inside wanting to attack
Aggression surrounds and asks for your hand
You think you can fight so you take a stand
Steel yourself harder like girded solid rock
While inside ticking loudly a tightly wound clock
One day you realize the tension is in you
The thing will not save you is the thing that you do
It’s about giving up not doing more
It’s about letting go not being so sure
It’s about accepting what’s happening in your life
The cycles we go through the serene and the fight
It’s about recognizing you are never alone
That a force walks beside you carrying you home
When you get fearful filled with tears and rage
One place you can turn for counsel that is sage
Look to your own heart find the spirit inside
Allow faith in your wisdom trust and have some pride
Resist the temptation to compare your sacred path
You are your uniqueness soak in your own bath
Trust in your future lessons and what they reveal
Let your own sweet journey take you to your real
Are you feeling incomplete or inadequate?
Do you know the source of those feelings?
Do they have to do with choices you have made or are they left over from before you had your own consciousness and will?
Do you need to update the inner dialogue that generates your feelings?
Do you need to forgive yourself for what you have done 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.
