I had recently been living in the South West of the USA, holding up in a nice environment, mostly out of fear, of once again venturing out of my comfort zone, keeping life in a continuous monotony of the past, and not deciding on doing something different for my self, and what I teach. Besides all the labels of what I teach, what I really teach is learning how to be free from one's own fear, and I was not living my teaching, that would be to follow my bliss, and the guidance of this creation we call life, through the universal energy, as well as my own guidance of that in me.
Yes, men do have feelings and emotions. What we may want to better ask is what do men do with their feelings and emotions?
Hold them, stuff them that may eventually take them to abuse drinking, and drugs, to relieve the pain. As well as take part in other limited addictions and patterns that keep the feelings and emotions in control, and deep in each one, that may ultimately take one to explode with anger and rage toward others and possibly to self.
Self Mastery can be defined as having the human ability to manage one's thoughts, feelings and emotions, especially as one is clearing one's 'human domestication process.' Human domestication process is how I refer to what was passed down to you by family members, learning institutions, culture, as well as peers--especially during your formative years of life. Later on in one's life, Self Mastery helps the individual manage, cope, and deal with real life situations, especially with other human beings, be it with your partner, family, friends, and or with individuals in your work environment.
The most unlimited and active form of living life is when humans learn how to 'connect' with one's self, to feel others that you are relating and interacting with, either on a personal basis or work environment. Connecting with self, is the act of becoming aware, owning, and expressing in a healthy way your feelings and emotions.
What stands out for me about this great global recession is how some critics and supporters are viewing our present economic situation. Most are searching well above the surface of the economic debate to see who was at fault, how it came about, or what we can do about it. All of this is just one part of the equation. There is a much deeper issue that is affecting us economically; an issue that asks us to look within ourselves for new individual guidance of our personal values to make right life choices. These choices can affect all of us personally and communally. Eventually they can even change our local, national, and global priorities. We also may want to look at our limited habits and patterns that come from a fear of scarcity, and our current measurements of success.
A few week's ago I was rereading Lord Alfred Tennyson poem in Wayne Dyer's, book, Wisdom of the Ages, that I'm sure many have read and most remember the last two lines.
"Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.”
These two memorable lines from Tennyson's poem, I Envy Not In Any Moods, from my perspective, goes beyond that of the love between a beloved in relationship. It may also say a lot, about how we may need to take risks in life as well as always going to the “love” in what ever we feel, see, and do.
