Uncompromising, Generous and Compassionate
A Legacy of Western Spiritual Master Lee Lozowick
These essays contain the final handwritten teachings of Lee Lozowick (1943-2010) given during the last eighteen months of his life, during which he lived in the crucible of an illness that limited his ability to speak. Yet, he continued to work and teach extensively, traveling in Europe and the U.S. until the last two days of his life.
Lee called these intimate epistles “Words of Fire and Faith.” Here the reader enters the teacher’s world and encounters a living flame that is simultaneously full of tenderness and compassion for the human predicament. His words are imbued with an inner fire that burns away the identification and entrenched attachments of our self-preoccupation.
These essays are a testimony of the author’s own radical faith rooted in surrender to the Supreme Reality, fully incarnated in a lifetime of devotion to his spiritual master, Yogi Ramsuratkumar. His writings speak to universal themes: self-honesty, cultivating attention; sanctuary; working with vanity, pride, lust; enlightened culture; recognizing reality as it is, faith, grace, divine ravishment, and relationship with the Beloved.
This book will enliven students of all spiritual paths, particularly those confronting their own mortality who seek to practice with a profound degree of refinement, as Lee Lozowick did. Lee’s constant directive to live fully in the fire of transformation rings true on every page; he tells us, without equivocation, that without a firm foundation, we cannot ride the waves of inexorable circumstance and the inevitable fact of death-the final moment in which we may actualize our full humanity in this lifetime.
