The Fullest Expression

There comes a time when we realize we are more than just how we express in to the world.

There is a fine line between giving, receiving, observing and being active in our action taking.

This recognizing of who we are at depth, whilst recognizing the intricate layers that we are made of frees us from the pain of limited expression and rigid posturing.

We are often grouped in to categories of ‘types of people’. Based on our gender, sexual orientation, age, race, ethnicity, social status, beliefs, relational status, socioeconomic standing, values, likes, dislikes, and so much more.

Whilst we are these expressive elements of life we are also so much more. We hide from the world aspects and expressions of the core of our being that we fear may ostracize, segregate and minimize us.

When we fear social isolation, rejection, ridicule and judgment we hide from the world.

Seldom are we courageous enough to step out of paralyzing fear and as a by-product step away from the normative status quo and stand strong in our truth.

But what if we did? What if we exposed those layers of self that we so often hide and shy away from?

Imagine that, the compounding effect of years of hiding important parts of self from our own self, others and the world?

Our externalised and normative expressions no longer become ours but society’s. When we step in to authentic posturing we are revealing the layers that are congruent to our hearts.

Then we expose more of who and what we are. This empowering series of actions is liberating and demonstrates our ability to step in to open-mindedness, compassion, self-love and connectedness.

A powerful moment of truth for anyone who is choosing to reveal themselves in this vulnerable manner.

It is a misconception that vulnerability is weakness. From the perspective of war, perhaps. But we must release the nervous system and cultural mentality of ‘survival of the fittest’.

In collaboration, true expression and unity we may thrive. Expressing layers of the self that may carry consequences of pain and discrimination requires great strength and is not weak.

Who will continue to pioneer this movement with me?

One is glad to be of service.

Men – The Need For Freedom

Traditionally, men have required freedom in order to function, in order to feel safe, at peace and connected.

This is not a, nor THE problem. The ‘problem’ (or perhaps puzzle to put together and mystery to solve) is how we have defined freedom as a collective and how we will define it moving forward?

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…

The Harsh Inner Critic

Lately, I have found myself comparing myself to others (particularly men in my space) that I perceive to hold the attributes I don’t yet have within myself. This has placed me in a little bit of a tailspin. There are times where I will be empowered and inspired and do more and concentrate on the authenticity of my expression and…

There are times where I revert and get stuck, feel the victim that I put so much effort in and “where am I still, what does he have that I don’t?” I criticize, become frustrated, agitated, short with others, despondent and not motivated to create. I feel jealousy and unworthy in this comparison mode.

Why ‘One Is Glad To Be Of Service’

Many years ago, I watched a beautiful movie called Bicentennial Man with Robin Williams. An unfolding and beautiful story about an AI Robot who is an enigma and somehow carries consciousness, awareness and metacognition. The journey unravels that he continues to grow and wishes to ‘BE-come’ human. What does it mean to be human?

Compliment Your Heart, Not Your Ego

The ego plays an important role in our development of self, our socialization and our connection to the ‘outside’ world.

However, when we consistently choose the ego over the expansive power of the heart we become unbalanced.

Ego protects us from a vantage point of fear, contraction and minimizing the true self. ‘It’ (being us and a part of us) still has a directive of self-preservation.
