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.

To Honour Is To Create Together

“When I truly honoured myself, I was able to honour women”…

In this life I have been blessed to transform many times over. There have been times where I have delved deep in to my own self solo and in isolation. There have been times when I have been deeply supported by other brothers. And there have been times where I have been guided by the divine presence of the feminine.

To Avoid Is To Hide

How do we respond to ‘rejection’? How do we respond to being pushed away? What is happening in our minds, brains, emotional bodies and physiology when we are perceiving to be rejected…?

To Ravage In Sacred Intimacy

To ravage our lovers and our beloved on sacred union (however you choose to define this) is to be fully present, is to expose the beauty and wonder of who we are.

Role-mate Or Soul-mate?

A role-mate is born of desperation, survival and fear. We get together to survive, not thrive. We don’t share deep values, we are here to serve primal needs only. Our intimacy is empty and scarce. We base our relationships on convenient agreements of doing in the world. Soul-mates come together to thrive, expand their connection to self, each other and the world. They are here to grow and explore their sexuality, spirituality, contributions and more. They are clear that they are here to serve the greater good of society and themselves. Which are you???

The Place Beyond Knowing

There is a place – a space that occupies the sub structures of our minds that resides beyond the conscious self.

This place is what we do not know, what we are not aware of and what is not familiar.

It is here in this place where there is so much that we know, yet are unaware of. Here, there is a story being constructed that we are architecting, it has no idea.
