Men, RISE Beside Our Women

We speak to gender, but is it really about gender? Is it really men vs. women? At what point will assume responsibility for the past and begin to step in to our potentiality and power? We have a choice… Awaken, or continue to slumber in ignorance.

In this moment, we have an opportunity to rise to the occasion of generational change. No longer must we be limited by the shackles of the past. We can now open our hearts, be ‘selfishly selfless’ and embrace the new paradigm of relating.

Why must we ‘oppose’ those who gives us life? Why must we make women our foe? Women are our allies. Women are our opportunity to step in to our greatness? Who wishes to remain unconscious, asleep and in deprivation?

This fear around power, around loss, its bullsh*t! Its actually the epitome of weakness, not vertical vulnerability, but the isolation and division we are continuing to perpetuate because of our attachments to fear, the past and pain.

It is time we stand up and rise BESIDE women. We are imprisoned and restricted when we place rigid expectations on how to lead. Our most powerful and agile leadership will stem from deep self-reflection and the acknowledgement of equity in power.

The days of manipulation, autocratic leadership, subjugating behavior, oppressive sexual action and hostility have passed. We are being a tremendous disservice to our own evolution and the expansion of humanity. A purely selfish and fear-based mentality will not serve us.

To commit atrocities such as rape, economic and political discrimination and divisive action is no longer a viable solution to our humanity. Let us leverage our physical prowess, foresight, power and presence for inclusive, sustainable and connected action.

When we stand in dignity and in humbled assertiveness we play out the benevolence that truly is. Now, there still may be conflict (inner and outer) as we navigate this new way of relating. We cannot begin to forgive without first feeling and this may throw us in to the tumultuous fire of divisiveness.

Here, as men we have a responsibility to hold fast and remain true to our power, strength and ability to navigate this turbulent and new terrain. To submit blindly is a disservice to our coming together. To fight side by side in order to illuminate our truth is what is needed.

Not as two polarized genders, rather as soul fighters of an order highlighted and united by love, connectedness and wisdom (devoid of ignorance) ready to lead human endeavor and potential into the light of compassion.

One is always glad to be of service.

The Dynamics of Relationship

It is often rare to create a relationship that is truly free. Freedom defined as our willingness to be present to all that unravels within the relationship, whilst also been not attached to the fruits of our efforts.

This does not mean that we are careless in the relationship, it actually means we care at such a depth that we have merged the selfish with the selfless. We are grounded in our expression and our energetic imprint allows those in our lives to feel that they have wings.

The Gift Of Jealousy – Why Do We Experience Jealousy?

Jealousy, if misunderstood, not felt and expressed fully and not connected to in an authentic manner can reap havoc with our emotional lives. It becomes problematic when we ignore where the deep feeling of jealousy may lead us…

“Shit Or Get Off The Pot”

Rise in to certainty! The above phase basically means either commit and be all in or get out of the way and stop pretending. In relationship, this translates to three key things:

1…Certainty
2…Clarity
3…Commitment

Healing Your Inner Child

Each of us carries that inner child. The inner child within is that unconscious part of us that carries unmet needs, fear of being seen, suppressed pain and worry unexpressed emotions and words, whilst also holding a playful zest for life and love, intimacy and connection.

The Expansive Masculine

When my mother sent me some old pictures of when I was child, my heart opened and memories came flooding back to me. I saw an innocent little boy with a massive smile on his face.

Yet the happy times were outweighed massively by the sadness and fear I experienced. Overtime that little boy learned that closing down his heart was the best way to protect himself. Then he grew up to be a man that was shut down because of a his pain.
