Conceit, haughtiness, egoism, feelings of superiority, excessive self-pride, overconfidence, superciliousness, self-importance and condescension are the descriptions of we whose true feelings more accurately could be labeled as sadness, an emotion which then threatens the hearts and minds of those in its presence.
Conceit is the opposite of pride, the enemy of dignity and the destructive force that limits friendship and destroys Love.
Pride on the other hand is an expression of Love.
A closer look at conceit may well reveal the existence of an enormous, secret fear so devious as to escape detection even by the owner.
A smile however, bonds those who wear it and replaces that glimmer of bravado that says “you can’t touch me. “
Oops. you caught me talking to myself.
LOVE BECOMES THE LOVER
To Love is to Heal.
To Accept Love is to Be Healed.
Healing begins when Fear is vanquished.
Fear returns to the shadows and birds begin to chirp.
Fear reveals itself again as first light dawns and wanes as…
The Light of Love is felt with the decision to Accept.
Acceptance lights the Path.
The Path is NOW
This is the way,.
To be Healed.
Love becomes the Lover.
And Fear becomes a fading memory.
Accept the LOVE and pass it on.

By Lee Broom
From Leadership: A Love Story.
Time for all purposes is measured two ways; the way we experience it and the way we remember it.
If you find yourself complaining that life is going too fast as you age I’m guessing that you need to get our head out of Your Past and open Your Present.
Our minds when in use, think in Real Time just as they did during our first year as guests on Planet Earth as we crawled about looking for a way to rise to our feet and better understand our environment.
Fear drives us to reminisce in search of better times. We hope as we do so that somehow this will build us back up and supply us with a new vigor, increased courage, as aids to facing the problems which threaten our current feelings of safety.
We must stay in the present as much as possible.
This, not That.
This is where Life is.
This is the secret to staying young.
Lets live it.
Lets Accept The Love and Pass it on.
In the early stages of our lifelong search for safety we discover THE LIE. For most of us THE LIE is the result of constant experimentation and as the leading edge of our life plan will remain so until the time comes to say goodbye.
We tell THE LIE with body language, vocabulary and countless mini-lies as life flies past.
Some of us become quite animated, our faces, punctuated by giggles and grins. Perhaps our arms are folded; others will want their jeans creased, insisting on a world of NEAT.
As life goes on we will be known by the reputations which have resulted from these decisions, ready to greet the world as such, well before the end of our second year.
Later in their teens the Big Strong football star with folded arms and even disposition will be cheered by the giggly gal who leads the cheer leader squad and he’ll say to his quiet self, “I’m gonna marry that girl one day and we’ll have strong, happy children who will grow up and do the same.” He pauses for a moment longer to feel the love in his heart; he starts to fold his arms but he felt the Love in his heart and dropped his arms at his side.
“I accept the Love”, he thought…
“I accept the Love and I’ll pass it on...
and that ain’t NO LIE.”
