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.

We are here because our ancestors fought to be here. We have evolved through the selecting of optimal biology, cultural adaptations and intelligence. According to human history only 30% of men reproduced. This was due to the fact that early humans were largely non-monogamous.

Those who were able to procreate were those who took risks, who ventured in to the unknown and explored, who challenged the norm, who went beyond the safe, who assumed leadership, took charge and who carried the intelligence, insight, strength, and courage to become act on their intuition.

The men who did not have the prowess to be successful died childless. We have descended from the strongest, most adept, fastest, most aware, bravest men of the past: history’s dominant and powerful males. It is not inconceivable to think that the blood of greatness runs through our veins.

A world of plenty makes us complacent, weak and lazy. When we seek challenge, we are honouring our evolution. When we become physically adept, knowing within ourselves that we are ready for war, scarcity or the next Zombie apocalypse we are being fucking GOOD at being men.

When we become consumed by society’s plenty and are purely polarised by this, blinded by the ease of access that drapes our every experience – the plethora of simplicity that allows us at times to be mindless drones and we do not seek to be challenged physically, mentally and spiritually we are decaying at every level.

We are not honouring our rich heritage of strength, courage, mastery, wit, cunningness, adeptness, willingness and prowess. We are becoming a dying breed of confirmatory pre-programmed, robotic, repetitive duplicates – with little autonomy, even less sovereignty and minimal appeal.

Women are fundamentally primally drawn to us by our yearning and ability to move through fear, to be ready to give our all, and to stand present to danger. There is something tantalising about the sacrifice. As scary as it is and as much as the feminine pursues peace and the masculine pursues conflict – the balance resides in seeing this dance for what it is.

A part of our truth and evolution. A woman knows that when she is fought for, when man proves his prowess through relentless pursuit his genes are something to take notice of. But it’s not just about genealogy. It’s more than this. Much more.

To activate our genes, our mindset of willingness, foresight, insight, wisdom and clarity must come in to play. Clarity to know what we are pursuing as men is something we deeply desire. This moves beyond biology and in to the mind/body experience. Are you ready for ‘anything’, are you connected to nature, are you willing to delve in to the realm of the unknown?

The point is you were born to be challenged, this form of challenge in facing the unknown and not being complacent has brought you here today. I am not stating that you start gang warfare to get a buzz, I am saying observe your life and ask yourself: “Am I too consumed by the culture of complacency and am I really growing in life? Am I happy with my body and strength, courage and prowess or am I hiding?”

One is always glad to be of service.

Why You May Be Attracting an Effeminate Man In Intimacy

We learn at a young age to wear masks to protect ourselves and be part of the “in” or popular group. We seek validation, approval and acceptance of those we deify, love and respect (aka our parents, peers and society).
We can’t maintain this. We seek to be accepted in all the wrong ways. Masculine and feminine energies exist in all of us. They are simply contrasted energetic expressions of our thoughts, beliefs and reality.

Embracing differences

We speak to the differences in men and women not to segregate but to celebrate. This celebration allows us to honor ourselves and each other. The truth is we are in this together.

Divine Union is something that can only flourish when polarity is felt to be merged. When sacred masculine deliberate intention meets sacred feminine compassion and opening.

The Gift Of Jealousy – Why Do We Experience Jealousy?

Jealousy, if misunderstood, not felt and expressed fully and not connected to in an authentic manner can reap havoc with our emotional lives. It becomes problematic when we ignore where the deep feeling of jealousy may lead us…

Owning Anger

I’ve been angry at people, myself, collective leadership, culture and everything that isn’t “seamless” in life. I’m judging myself and not owning my anger. I’m stuck in a pattern of pitying myself and thinking I’m weak because I am angry. Whilst I’ve been aware of it, I haven’t slowed down ENOUGH to digest feeling the accumulation of the collective panic, I have been in “response mode”.

Entering The Sacredness Of The ‘Yoni’

The only vantage point we have is our own. However, through accessing our empathetic faculties, our own direct experiences and the yearning to learn and grow we may reach a place where our wisdom and willingness to connect plays an integral role in our expansion. This is a male perspective on one of the most sacred ‘homes’ in the cosmos…
