Are You a Purposeless Man?

What Is Your Edge?

There are millions of men in our culture who have misplaced their edge and vitality for living. These complacent fathers, husbands and purposeless men are stuck in patterns and beliefs that reinforce the stagnation of their Spirit. They are dying inside. Many irresponsibly venture to the dark side of their consciousness, negatively impacting their families and communities.

On the other end of the spectrum, there are many men who are chasing a dragon’s tail. They exhibit addictive behaviors that are never satisfied and continue to look for outside confirmation for peace IN mind and happiness. Hedonistic pursuits that negatively impact their lives and those who love them.

I believe men who embody the new masculine heart create vision through action and balance while being willing to embrace the edge of their unique purpose.

Men are born with the heart of a warrior. We are adventurous souls who hunger for exploration. Intuitively we know our unique qualities. We know this unique blue print can ignite our passion for life and when we join others who carry the same fire, we fulfill our destiny and begin to live a life of purpose with our destiny partners.

The challenge, “What is Your Edge” begins with an exploration and awareness of self. At that moment of self awareness be willing to commit to always expanding to your edge. Your edge is identified by you and you will always know your truth.

Your Edge is a rich, spirit filled exploration of life benchmarked with achievements and failures.

The New Masculine Heart

What Really is In Your Heart?

How is your heart today? What is on your heart today?

These questions solicit different responses from the typical decencies exchanged in our culture.

For the most part, our culture finds it necessary to ask how someone is, but rarely do we have interest in the truth or a response. We scurry on with our project and hope for a response like, “I am fine” or I’m pretty good-thanks.” Avoiding a connection that might actually share what “really” is in our hearts.

These exchanges tend to be even more constrictive and shallow among men in our culture. Men respond with one syllable grunts. Is this exchange a way of protecting our safety and vulnerability? It was for me!

Men are creators and warriors in so many areas in life but it is an extraordinary man who lives from his heart and has surrendered to the machismo archetype while still maintaining incredible power and intimacy.

We all have intimate moments when we perceive the space is sacred and safe. Next time you have this experience notice the physical space near your heart and how open and free this space feels.

Why do we as men hold back and protect our truest nature?

What if we allowed our hearts to guide us into a balanced life with purpose?

The New Masculine Heart is a dynamic expression of masculinity in the 21st century that is awakening.

We need men to answer their calling and awaken their masculine heart. At our truest nature our hearts are wild and adventurous and my experience is that the adventure of The New Masculine Heart has been one of my life’s grandest journeys, a non- physical journey that continues to challenge my emotional intelligence.

Are you willing to join me?
