If I Could Tell You Just One Thing

If I could reach through the computer screen, grab you by the shoulders and tell you just ONE thing, it would be this:

Never apologize for your strength, your edge, your restless energy.

The world may make you feel a threat and a pig, simply by virtue of being male.

But it is not your masculinity they fear… it is the fear of man’s power untempered by love.

The highest expression of a man is when his POWER and his LOVE are held and exercised in equal measure.

When you open yourself to the true birthright of your gender… when you fully embrace both the POWER and the LOVE that are equally and inextricably your deepest nature… that is when the magic happens.

That is the “sweet spot” from where you’re able to unleash massive effect on the world:

When you are able to cut through obstacles that in a lesser state seem insurmountable.

When you are able to look at your wife, even as she weeps or says words that on another day would have cut you to the bone… and sweep it all away with one look, the look that says “I love you… and it will take more than that to break me.”

    “The highest expression of a man is when his POWER and his LOVE are held and exercised in equal measure.”
    I think I believe this to be true. It’s a great way of putting it and your wife example really brings it home and makes it tangible. It’s a difficult place to get to though…
