Lee says, “Our mind is the biggest obstacle to living our life to the fullest.” Life is just one crazy adventure. Control what fires up inside, respond positively, remain always “at choice” and you are truly free. You are not bound to anyone. Pick and choose, have fun, no apologies. Human being Human. Love. When […]
Open up to Life my heart, fear not your feelings of hurt and pain, they burnish the gild inside a false shell hiding the meat, your life! To be surrendered. “You belong to me ,” she said. Copyright © 2007 Lee Down, all rights reserved
Poetry | Dichotomous Truth
Refined ignorant masses of sexual beasts Controlled existence to behave civilized Locked in the prison of every mind The fantasies of truth subverting lives Questions of insanity always abound Creating chaotic confusion in doubt The facade growing heavier with time Weight collapsing as cracks crumble Unable to withstand the growing appetite Left untended deep within […]
Changes, Changes, Changes: Hang On!!
Need I say more? Dealing with the turbulence that comes often with changes, I can lose my cool, lose my patience, lose my calm, lose my mind, and even lose my way. This happens as the physical calm of routine vanishes and the mind enforces new routines and both the mental and physical aspects of […]
Life’s Beauty and Mysteries Squashed & Found
The conflicted craziness that observes our current cultural and societal reality tears at the heart and mind from time-to-time. Today, being pointed to one of Einstein’s writings, I picked the following that resonates with a strong value I hold dear. The really valuable thing in the pageant of human life seems to me not the […]
She is Wonderful Beyond Expression
Sometimes we meet people who have a profound impact upon our heart. Two women friends came by for a visit and to take some flour off my hands; good intentions that long ago went awry. They stayed to chat for a couple of hours and somehow the conversation went into intimate and authentic territory without […]
The Mind is Such a Tool !!
One the old site, I wrote a piece called a Spiritual Guide. It was written in response to a name-blame-game that objectified these little monsters in your life that sabotaged you. These monsters were called Gremlins based upon Taming Your Gremlins book popularly used by Life Coaches and Career Coaches. Still relevant in a metaphorical […]
How Could It Be?
Yesterday I shared a significant insight from my own journey. It’s interesting to note that often a powerfully resistant question crops up almost immediately. “What do you mean?” It is a powerful disbelief because this realization places even more responsibility on my doorstep than I had otherwise felt real. This is where the sh1t has […]
Where ya been?
Ha! I said I’d be posting something every day. Did you see what happened over the weekend? Nothing! Absolutely nothing! I had time, or could have made time, I’m sure. So what happened? I see hidden in the corner of my [[consciousness]], this petulant brat who wants to snub his nose at all the demands […]
Tears of Heaven
I’m a guy, and I don’t want to cry. It is not something that is easy to explain, nor easy to share. Gawd, why am I even writing about this? Well, this week has been spent in half day workshops with an [[eclectic]] group of men from all walks of life. I have to say, […]
