Remembering Kelly


kelly-frontKelly Lee Phipps was born February 5, 1971 and he left us to play in the stars on March 25, 2014.  Our inspired warrior was a guide, a Father, a Brother, a Son and friend to all humanity.  A comic astronaut, he sailed into enlightening dimensions only to bring them back down to share with the world.  His quest was always to liberate and help others find their own unique calling in life.  His enthusiasm for life goes unmatched as did his courage battling this cancerous brain tumor.

Although we miss his uplifting presence we must carry on his polymathic perspective, his fearlessness, and his brilliant heart into our daily lives. Helping his son, Arian, he wanted his writings and poetry and recorded teachings to continue to be made available to help finance what he no longer could.

“If you argue for your limitations you have to fight them. But if you discover your possibilities, you get to create them.” -Kelly Lee Phipps



Step beyond the rattling barriers,
 the noisy, blurred, shattering need for crisis.
Cross the smoldering threshold into the fierce silence 
that lurks in forgotten
corners of your heart.

Are you there in that spinning stew of cosmic design?
Or are you lost in a sea of shadows?

Despite achievement, despite any achievement, 
the world never cancels adversity.

You must choose one path; you must choose one path,
When you swim in the churning maelstrom of freedom

Ripe with choice; devoid of rigidity
Changing, becoming, and realizing
 the detachment of the forked trail
looming before you into darkening wood.

– Kelly Lee Phipps
