Are You Lost In The Doing?

Ever feel there is more…? The masculine expression in economic pursuit has become so lost in “doing” that he has forgotten to ask “What is worth doing”? This is not about being “anti-business”, this is about alignment of truths…

It is not on the best interest of market economics and share holder growth to be self-reliant, free thinking and contemplative being. Man must work, he must consume, do and have more so that he may prove his worth to the world, himself, his peers and his culture.

However this ignorance and lack of attention to self is slowly decaying the very fabric of our social order and distancing us from our dreams. Perhaps we must stop asking “how can we produce more” and begin to ask “what is it we truly wish to create”?

Mindless work not connected to meaning and substance that only serves industry and obsession is a futile void that only takes us away from our core essence. Man and the masculine is at the centre of this. He suffers greatly as his self worth is tied in to his “contribution” and his acceleration of status and material acquisition.

Our greatest dignity and revelation as men comes in not exhausting our inner resources and identifying with the false idolized gods of market capitalism but rather to truly connect to our vocation and deepest vision for self.

If we cannot create the space to think and feel freely because we are energetically consumed with the pursuit of activities that don’t truly matter, then how will ever know what we truly desire and give selflessly from our internal well of fullness of it hasn’t got an opportunity to exist?

There is great virtue and pride in being a provider, being creative and being useful. AND… could some of those mindless hours spent working on someone else’s dream been spent playing with your children, walking in silence in the forest or living your truth in authenticity?

When does work become excessive? At the expense of our relationships, sanity, psyche? Can we pause and ask ourselves what we truly want? We fear the pause, spaciousness and stillness – for it reveals deep confronting truths of our nature that we may not be ready to face.

You are though. Like it or not, you have a warrior psyche. Utilise that power and prowess to battle through the status quo and identify with the core of who you are

So… Who are you?

One is glad to be of service.

Appreciating Differences and Diversity

Men and women are different. This is not a “bad” thing. We get to celebrate our differences and our sameness simultaneously. We all think we desire equality, but do we really desire equity? It’s safe to be different, in fact necessary.

The Sacred Scent – A Tribute To Her

The fragrance of your beloved… You recognize her as she enters your space. Your eyes shut, yet your senses so open. So receptive to her scent. You can feel her approaching, feel her movement. However, you can only be receptive if you are open in heart, humble in gesture and connected in spirit.

Revering The Sacredness Of The Father Energy

A tribute, honouring and recognition to the sacred and divine Father energy and archetype that holds strongly, safely and with pure intent consciousness and the stability of its own being and that of others in its presence…

My Unhealthy Shadow Relationship To Food

Men experience food addictions and body issues too. I used food as a means to escape. To leave my reality. It made me feel good. I felt connected, alive and SAFE with food. Food, like the movies, would momentarily take me away from a place that was violent, volatile and what felt to be unsafe.

The Honouring Of Life Creation

There lies tremendous beauty in the recognition of what it means to be fully connected to the creation energy. We all have great reverent capacity to create, however there is something unique about the women in our lives and their ability to create.

I will never claim to know this very specific form of creation energy through the feeling body of a woman.
