Down and down
round and round
where does it lead
this spiral staircase?

Down and down
round and round
why is it so dark
this spiral staircase?

Down and down
round and round
can I return back up
this spiral staircase?

Down and down
round and round
too late now I am bound to
this spiral staircase.

Mike,

What a cool image - I like this. In reply to your questions:

I think the answer is a very simple yes. What we have to do is turn around. But so often we fear to do that. After all, what's the use if endlessly down just becomes endlessly up? But neither image has to be that way.

Much love,
Larry

Thanks for your comments Larry. What comes to mind of the difference of endlessly going down versus endlessly going up is that down is assisted greatly by gravity. It can easily become our default mode with little or no conscious effort. going up requires decisive determination on our part. We must make a conscious decision first to turn around and then to being and maintain a upward progression.

Mike
