The Domestication Of Man

Our time to excel in a way we have not before is here. We are being asked by our higher selves to forge a version of man that rises above the chaotic nature of our time and expand in consciousness.

Our sense of self (collectively and individually) has been stunted, reduced and minimized to some passive expression of what it means to be a masculine man. We have suppressed our presence in favor of being liked by the masses.

We are afraid to emote and express with clarity of fear of being judged, ridiculed and further isolated. This is not a story about victimization. We would be ignorant to think men are victims. We are not! However, we have lost our way and it is our responsibility to establish healthy and connected foundations of inter-relating.

Our journey towards individuated empowerment commences now. We must step in to and own our own sense of wholeness first before we come together. It begins with destroying the disillusioning idea of what we call “normal” (which is isolating) and liberating our healthy power.

Men and women alike may not want to hear this but for man to come in to his own sense of manhood, he must distance himself from woman, culture, war and pursuit (temporarily), so that he may traverse a rite of passage that familiarizes him with the depth of his own voice, presence and being.

We only know the mysteries unique to maleness when we separate from woman’s world (not the personhood of woman but the archetypal woman imprinted upon the collective psyche of the masculine).

But before we passage in solitude, we must know consciously how we are entangled, enmeshed, enwombed and defined by woman. Otherwise we will still be controlled by what is unconscious within us.

The mother wound – the projected and interpreted “sissifying” of our boys, which in essence is hyper-vigilant protection and perhaps an over compensated nurturing out of necessity not intention. And the father wound – the absent father, the seeking of approval from an unavailable source leaving us consistently empty. We must move away from these psychological pains and focus on something deeper.

That man is missing his purpose. He has become habituated by culture and the promise of fulfillment through “things”, doing, attaining, conquering and social status that he has forgetting his true north that can only be revealed through the reconnection to his heart-full and conscious presence.

Man must promote his own sense of solitude and connection to this cosmic power so that he may know himself. The traditional rites of passage that once promoted mans connection to purpose and meaning have be drowned in a sea of cultural absurdities…

As men we are missing a deeper sense of self found through being with ourselves and supported by an elder brethren that promote values such as: revering Mother Earth and the feminine alike, discernment, presence, balanced self-reliance, clarity, wisdom, patience and truth to mention some.

One is glad to be of service.

Are You Afraid Of Being Alone?

How much time do you spend with yourself? We are so drowned out by the millions of voices, the busyness, the clutter, the bombardment of ‘do this’, ‘buy that’ and ‘be this’, that we have forgotten our true nature.

Shadow Sexual Desire

We all have sex. Most of us adore sex. Most of us crave it, yet many of us do not know what we truly want when it comes to our sexual desires or fantasies. Our sexual fantasies often remain in the imagination because we are too fearful to explore the meaning of them.

Sacred Sexuality

The practical sense of REAL and TRUE sacred sexuality is supporting and seeing each other through uncertainty and vulnerability.
Sacred sexuality allows us not to hide, to be open in our bodies.
Sacred sexuality allows us to trust. This frees us so we do not harbour pain and tension.

We All Have Stories

We all have stories… We all have a past. Most of our pasts are less lopsided than we think.

Amidst the chaos, confusion and the volatility exists a place where there is at the least; some peace. My past and childhood at large weren’t pretty… Many of us share similar pasts.

Why Others May Be “Mean” To You

There are no excuses for someone mistreating you, however, there are reasons. Understanding these possible reasons bridges the gap between response and reaction (and reaction often damages relationships). This understanding provides us with two important access points to greater consciousness and relationships.
