about

This book is an inspiring collection of short teachings taken from the writings and personal communications of American spiritual teacher, Lee Lozowick (1943-2010). From the raw and practical to the sublime and mystical, these quotations touch upon every aspect of life, calling readers to stop, if only for five minutes a day, every day, or any day of the year. Lee's words are invitations to contemplation, often giving a new spin to an old subject, and sometimes encouraging a complete about-face. The title, "Just This," represents a primary tenet of Lee's teaching legacy. Since humans love to layer interpretations onto ordinary reality, and since most of those interpretations lead to confusion, anxiety, and more suffering, "Just This" asserts that we can return to the simplicity of what is, as it is, here and now. Dozens of his instructions focus around learning to unlearn, particularly the habits of the conclusion-making mind. With an appreciation of "Just This" as our foundation, we can see through layers of expectation and fear to make honest and clear choices or enact meaningful change. Drawn from a wide variety of sources, including some never-before-published writings, Just This 365 addresses such important topics as kindness, generosity and compassion; good humor and good company; self observation; devotion and surrender to the Will of God; and presence and attention in everyday life and relationships. Not all deadly serious, however, some of these statements strike at the need to take ourselves more lightly. Lee Lozowick loved to make people laugh. He knew that laughter softened defenses, allowing his listeners to become more vulnerable to truth. Many of the quotes chosen here are included for a similar purpose. Pithy quotes can serve as excellent reminding factors. They beg to be copied or printed out and posted around the house in places where they will be seen often, prayed, or even better, memorized. In the midst of difficult times, under stress, discouraged, hungry for comfort, the reader can take nourishment from these short inspiring reflections, and courage from these sometimes fierce injunctions

1. What We NeedIt isn't Enlightenment we need, it is patience, clarity, objectivity, kindness, compassion, self-respect, Faith, generosity, a sense of humor, common sense, discrimination, reliability, trust-worthiness, discipline, integrity, impeccable/ruthless self-honesty, calmness of mind, self-control, conscience, elegance, nobility, dignity, perspective, delight, joy, wonder.2. Accept What IsOne of the ideas of this Work . . . is to accept who we are, as we are, where we are, and in this acceptance, in this undefended simplicity of 'what is as it is, here and now,' allow the Divine Influence of God to change us according to His Will, instead of our narrow view being the definitive perspective. 3. God Leads The WayWhat I am suggesting is that God knows full well our exact state and will provide all the resources needed, in the proper time and place, given the exact capacities and abilities in the moment, for our continued drawing nearer to Him, in our ongoing Revelation of already present Union or Perfection as 'what is, as it is, here and now.' If we simply Intend to serve or to know Him and live the lives He has given us . . . He will chart our paths and direct our activities, establishing us as we need to be established in order to optimally and most effectively serve Him which is no different from optimally and effectively serving the whole of His creation in the ways directly in the forms of what is in front of us, present here and now.
