The True Masculine - Practicing self-mastery each day - By no means easy - We are not perfect. I am a strong warrior walking through life with masculine purpose, emotional and spiritual intelligence. This is my truth, my ambition - #masculineproud.
He cleans up after himself. He cleans up the planet. He is a role model for young men. He is rigorously honest and fiercely optimistic.
He holds himself accountable. He knows what he feels. He knows how to rage without hurting others. He knows how to fear and how to keep moving. He seeks self-mastery.
He has let go of childish shame. He feels guilty when he’s done something wrong. He is kind to men, kind to women, kind to children. He teaches others how to be kind. He says he’s sorry.
He stopped blaming women or his parents or men for his pain years ago. He stopped letting his defenses ruin his relationships. He stopped letting his penis run his life. He has enough self-respect to tell the truth. He creates intimacy and trust with his actions. He has men that he trusts and that he turns to for support and learn from. He knows how to roll with it. He knows how to make it happen. He is disciplined when he needs to be. He is flexible when he needs to be. He knows how to listen from the core of his being.
He’s not afraid to get dirty. He’s ready to confront his own limitations with boundless ambition. He has high expectations for himself and for those he connects with. He looks for ways to serve others. He knows he is an individual. He knows that we are all one. He knows he is an animal and a part of nature. He knows his spirit and his connection to something greater.
He knows that the future generations are watching his actions. He builds communities where people are respected and valued. He takes responsibility for himself and is also willing to be his brother’s keeper.
He knows his higher purpose. He loves with fierceness. He laughs with abandon, because he gets the joke.
By no means is this list complete.
The beauty when we let go of our ego. Ego is a killer."You’re waiting to not be afraid and that’s never going to happen. If you want this, it’s there for you. But you have to jump through the fear."
Jump! Staying in your comfort zone is a shit place to be.
And anyway the sun will still rise again tomorrow morning.
Most of us ‘Just Kinda Want It’
This is what we have to do if we really want it.

No excuses. Play life like a champion.
Great perspective about all the crap we whinge about.

Great video showing that we’ve arrived and have never missed living in the present and moment as much as we are now.
Have a good Poker Face.
I have beautifully evolved and changed since I left Sydney; living in London & New York and taking the time to visit many wonderful countries across seven and half years.
The world and its people have taught me well.
Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.
I lived in London for four years September 2006 - June 2010.
