The World I Have Come To Know

As I sit and watch, observe the world around me behave, watching my nephews eat and people stroll, walk and run past I can’t help but to feel the world around me…

Ever since I was a child I could really FEEL the world, people and their pain. I would feel their pain in order to not feel alone in the world. I also experienced so much of it myself that I wanted to help others with their pain.

As I reflect deeper on this I see there was definitely part of me projecting my suppressed pain in order to feel better about myself and share my suffering so I wasn’t alone and the other parts were my intuition really “seeing” what was below the surface of often what was pretend for people.

Society told me overtly and in more subtle ways that feeling others and myself in this way was not acceptable especially for a man. So I numbed it and stepped into a more aggressive version of myself, hating on myself whenever I was to feel the hurt of myself or others.

With all of the deep work I have done, the psychological and spiritual “pits of hell” I have often traversed I seem to be at a crossroads still… and we often will be when we choose to expand. Side note. The work doesn’t end per se.

I am now choosing what I perceive, intuit and sense as truth on a deeper level without judgment, doubt or from an unhealthy place. The crossroads is there is still an internal battle of breaking the old patterns…

That’s part of the journey, awakening and the growth. I accept where I am and I am excited for the possibility this acceptance brings…

One is glad to be of service

The Slow Burn Of Resentment & Anger

Can we not love the fullness of who we are? The fullness of others and embrace their humanness, our humanness? This does not mean not creating reverent boundaries, but it does mean surrendering to our authentic nature…

Go Deep To Go Far

There is so much superficial shit out there. The problem isn’t superficiality, the ‘puzzle’ (as opposed to the problem) is we remain in the superficial for too long. We are too scared to venture into the deep (we will come back around to this).

The superficial is actually healthy and a place where we can find common ground. Imagine being on a date – getting to know someone and your first question is: “so tell me your deepest childhood trauma”?

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.

To Ravage Wildly Begins and Ends With Openness and Trust

For the masculine to take the feminine in to ecstasy, both softness in surrender and authenticity in leadership must transpire. THIS IS DEEPLY ABOUT CONSENT, CONNECTION & MUTUAL TRUST. THIS IS NOT ABOUT SELFISH DOMINANCE OR OPPRESSION.

There Will Always Be Peanut Butter

At times we often gaze into the sky, into nothingness, to the stars, to the horizon, to apparent emptiness.

In these times of deep and sincere gazing, we question our place and path. We abstractly enquire into the nature of our existence, of our actions and our feelings.
