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.

A Fierce Kind Of Love

We cannot expect others to fill our voids. If we are not connected to who we ultimately (in an ever-evolving way) are we are ‘losing’. Love with ‘others’ may only flourish when we at least recognise the love within ourselves, when we realise we are our own source of brilliance, power, flowing love and divinity.

Man

Thousands of years of compounded behaviour has resulted in the unhealthy and extreme posture and dominant masculine expression rampant in the majority of men today. By describing accurately who we have been is not perpetuating a myth or holding ‘ourselves back’. We are holding ourselves back by fracturing our psyche by not looking at ourselves from a place of holism…

Tapping Into Your Feminine

The internalized embodiment of feminine consciousness by man has been a welcoming change as it has allowed both men and women to see each other at greater depth. A more profound appreciation has transpired towards women and this has bridged the gap of isolating our differences.

The Sacred & Compelling Power of Monogamy

There has always been an integral part of me that has valued the nature of deep shared intimate connection. A connection that takes us on an intertwining journey. In this article we explore the innate and powerful value of monogamy as a source of growth…

Transference – How Good Are You At It?

Attempting to understand this type of behaviour according to a superficial or face value view will only confuse us and distance us form ourselves and our loved ones…
