It came about after a prolonged period of meditation, having the same image come up in my mind's eye over and over - A Closed Door in the middle of a giant hall. Someone said write about it and I did; hence this poetry and the concept, then 175 Missing Pieces and all the rest of the books on recovery and now workshops and seminars on spiritual recovery.

I am Alone and my World is a Dangerous Place
My ego believes that I am alone and my world is a dangerous place.
Only by doing something or getting something or being somebody, will I attain the happiness and safety that I seek.
These are my compulsions-obsessions.
When my efforts fail, it tells me there are certain "magic" substances and habits that can always be relied on.
