Inside the heart lie the propellers of our greatest flight. They are covered over by the weight of our deepest wounds and fears of our darkest places. They remain scattered among the soil of our emotional terrain. If we truly wish to bring our most prized possession, our humanity, with us on this next phase of emergence, we will need to go the places that anchor this incredible power and potential.
Like a spring that has been compressed, we hold our own version of kinetic energy. Stored in our emotional body, cells, and DNA. For men, I feel many of us are in conflict with that energy. What does that power actually look and feel like outside the unhealed domain of fear and control? The collective shadow of that control that we share and are not totally conscious of at its roots. We are not responsible for moving that individually but it does exist inside of us to whatever degree it does. What rage still resides inside of our hearts that has yet to be tapped into and loved with compassion and understanding?
Without going in and seeking to feel the answers to these questions there is something of our most impassioned essence that leaves us in a state of stillbirth. We can try some end run around this by focusing on mental pursuits or spiritual bypassing, but the heart will always bring us back to itself. That is a definitive statement but it just feels true to me. It has been true for me. No matter where you go, there you ARE.
As men, we have this inherent need for quest and journey. For creation and manifestation. For exploration and expression. The fire in the hearth of the feminine. It aches to launch out into the cosmos of the soul with reverence and also abandon. It will apologize later if it needs to. There is a wildness that doesn´t follow the rules and seeks to tear them down. To make bold claims and empowered choices. The masculine is on a path of fully embodying the sacred pyre and seeking union with its feminine counterpart. More than twins. Two separate yet catalytic co-creators.
This journey begins in the heart. Lifting and loving those anchors off the propellers so the heart can fly WITH the soul with the body as its vehicle. It is having a relationship with this aspects of ourselves that mitigates this endeavour of the arising wonder of the sacred masculine. Who are we in our most enlightened state as we lighten the anchors inside? I am on this path inside myself daily through the SoulFullHeart Way of Life as the portal to my highest expression. It has served much growth inside me and desire to serve that to others who are feeling the swirls inside them as well. The feeling of uncertainty or desire for more heart-centered conversation and expression.
The men´s group call is a container for Raphael Awen and I, to lead a meditation and discussion into our masculine hearts, our connection to the cosmos, and our desire for love and romance with the queens of our feminine fancy. It aims to be a great launching pad for our growing desire for community and brotherhood of heart. Both of us so look forward to going on this journey with you.
