Every so often our lives ask us
Can you get bigger without much fuss
When we feel trapped bound and in chains
Release let go get beyond growing pains

It’s not the external causing fears
Constructs of the ego locks up our gears
The tension and friction causing our grief
Comes from the collusion of self-concepts and beliefs

The war raging inside colored bloody red
Till you bring blue waters to quiet your head
The salve of quiet thinking brings peace to your home
New habits of mind you develop alone

No one does it for you though suggestions they make
Realizing your new truths the rewards more than cake
Heed your feelings as voices begging for attention
Expand your mind around them developing new dimension

When feeling twisted pulled by head and feet
Stop old worn voices they will bring defeat
Find a current construct that holds the new you
Grow into the new space or get bitter and blue

The blessing for humans the gift of consciousness
The tools that you come with lead to your happiness
The lessons you learn on this earth plane
Increase value and knowledge no need to complain

What are you currently learning in your life experience?
Are you using new knowledge?
Who and what are your best teachers?
How might you leverage what you are learning?
Can you let go of old beliefs?
When was the last time you did that consciously?
Do you understand how to reframe things?

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.
