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.

Masculine Sexual Complexity

I spent many years not having a very healthy relationship to sexuality – the act itself, my sexual projections and my sexual essence. I used sex as a means to validate my worthiness and how I viewed myself. The truth is I manipulated the art of sexuality to attempt to fill a void that was not fillable.

The Change Of Man

Men have been in flux for a great deal of time – transmuting, reviving, redefining and realising their role, place and understanding of self. For those men especially that are not graced by (or have produced) affluence and have access to resources these are trying times on their masculinity and their perception of self…

We Are Not Weakened In Luxury And Comfort

Men, YES… you can be in this world of luxury and comfort and not be softened and weakened by it.

There is nothing intrinsically wrong with luxury and ease in life. In fact, it is something we all naturally pursue with zest. However, too much of it can make us weak, can hinder our ability to live an authentic life, where we abiding by some of our natural states.

Willingness Trumps Trying

We forget the power of taking ownership of our thoughts And actions and stepping in to this action from a place of clarity and discernment.

Trying is misdirected. It is noncommittal and flaky. Trying means we don’t believe in ourselves. Trying is laden with excuses preparing us for the justification of failure and it side steps us out of fear.

The Underestimating Of Female Power

As a collective energy and historically men have disregarded the sacredness of women – the authentic power they bring and the presence they contain.
The narrative has been one of discrimination, segregation, divide, oppression and minimisation…
