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.

The Sacred Invitation

There is something magnificent about the human gaze… Particularly that of a woman. She is able to show so much of who she is, what has been and what will be.

As men, it is an honour to witness the sacredness of the gaze. This invitation into the soul and essence of a woman’s world liberate us from overthinking.

How You May Be Unealthily Co-Dependent

Codependency keeps us in old patterns of reliance, low self-worth and playing safe. The patterns around codependency rely on others to feel “good”, safe, “whole”. This sensation and yearning of wanting to feel complete or whole reside within all of us.

Debunking 5 Myths Around Being a Man

Whilst there are many ideas around what it means to be masculine and what it means to be a man in today’s world, many of them are either based on outdated cultural norms or are distorted and unrealistic. Why? Because, we are placing far too much emphasis on what man ‘should’ be in an idealistic sense and not actually placing attention on the gifts of man.

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.

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.
