truthful perceptions: times…

Are you a Man or a Mannequin? Real men exemplify the substance of integrity abiding inside of them. Fake men are like the mannequins in a store.

Dressed fashionably well to attract others towards them, and yet cold to the touch and hollow on the inside from a lack of moral substance.

Real men clothed themselves with the vest of integrity each and everyday. Fake/abusive men don’t even realize how naked they are before the world regardless to how expensive their clothes are.  

Real men court, date, become engaged to and marry integrity for a lifetime. Fake/abusive men have already divorced themselves from the possibility of even knowing who she is.

You can never step up as a Man, if you’re knocking down a Woman. You can never improve yourself as a Man, if you’re verbally abusing a Woman. You can never better yourself as a person and advance inspirational thoughts in others, by destroying the life of a Woman.

Integrity is a lifestyle, not a choice. It is not a demand, but a dialect of human language invisibly spoken in the form of a selfless love and respect for all life, especially the life of your wife/intimate partner. Most men have integrity genetically encoded in their DNA and will absolutely protect and defend all life. They never abuse women and behave as a moral leader in their home, at the workplace and most importantly when no one is watching.

Men of integrity behave this way at all times…

truthful perceptions: discernment

IMG_3502

As a man, you are not here to set the world right, but to see it rightly. When to judge a situation rightly is to know what triggers your anger, your fear and your jealous emotions and then immediately stop, intervene with replacing negative images and stop the pattern of habitual behavior you would normally do.

You have the ability and the obligation to judge a situation rightly. This principle is most important and exists especially in situations where you may have been legitimately wronged and have all the evidence you need to prove it.

Give no opportunity for yourself to be influenced, coerced, pushed, persuaded, triggered, pressured, brainwashed and angered to become physically and/or verbally violent with your wife/intimate partner.

Use whatever negative situations that may arise as an opening to practice right judgment over your own actions. Always remember that you have control over no one but yourself.

truthful perceptions: children

IMG_0011 copy

This past week I read the most horrific news of a man in Colorado, who posted a picture on Facebook he took holding his one year old baby girl, right before taking her life using a gun.  Is there injustice, yes. Is there the constant thread of man’s inhumanity to man, Woman, Children, Animals, the Planet and eventually not just the exploration of Space, but the inevitable exploitation of it too, yes, there is and will be.

This irrationality of behavior is far from the things of God and the purpose of love, which are sadly forsaken for the cause of greed, the existence of fear and the illusion of power.  For greed has never created one human being to be loved, fear has never freed one soul and lust for power pushes men ever further from the divine design of compassion.

Domestic violence and all of its devious tentacles is an insidious virus of the human condition, continuing to morph into the most hideous of all earthly creatures. More and more men are now killing the children of their victims of abuse, as a form of punishment against the Mothers. This has got to stop.

Stories come in from all over the country: In Grifton NC. A man kills his 3 yr. old son with a gun in front of the Mother wounding her soul in ways no physical blow can.  In San Jose CA a man kills his three children in a fit of anger to punish the Mother.  The most recent happened in Colorado with a man who shot a toddler in the head, (who incidentally had just learned how to walk) because he wanted to punish the Mother for leaving him, stating that if he can’t have her, no one else will.

Using children as weapons against Mothers is the worst demonstration of greed, existence of fear and the illusion of power a man could ever manifest.  Whether it became a spontaneous last minute tactic brought on by an argument, or a nuclear option you decided to implement after feeling you’re losing the control you’ve had over the Mother for so many years.

Abusing a Woman through killing her child is the lowest level of manhood and the highest form of cowardice you will be forever known for. Deep down as a Man you know this to be true, as this contradicts and presents the complete opposite of why you are divinely blessed to be a Father.  In this case opposites are not attractive.

As a man, if you’ve ever come to this level of thinking then now is the time for you to truly seek the help that is available for you.  No matter where you are, please look into the National Resources listed below to find the someone to talk to in your area.

Just remember there is an answer to every anguish in your soul and a solution to every shadow in your life, but you have to fight to obtain the peace and dignity we all deserve, especially the children.

truthful perceptions: worth…

Abusing a Woman doesn’t make you a Man, anymore than siring a baby makes you a Daddy. The realities of your intent, based on the content of your actions are what qualifies a Male to be a Dad, and a Man in loving a Woman.

Any fool can ejaculate sperm into a Woman, but its the Male who takes the lifetime dignity of responsibility for the life-giving result of those actions, that both separates and equates, designates and defines him as a Real Man.

Any fool can place a diamond ring on a Woman’s finger, or buy her a house and a Yacht, pay her rent or provide her with a substantial monthly wardrobe allowance.  

However, In the fight against domestic violence, the single most important agent of change in acquiring social justice is the empowered survivor.  They will tell you that a ring on there finger never stopped a beating, a Yacht never prevented a punch and fancy wardrobe doesn’t heal the bruises from bodily blows any faster than regular clothes. 

The Great Slave emancipator Harriet Tubman said that “Although I freed over ten thousand slaves, I could have freed thousand’s more if only they knew they were slaves…”  The greatest weapon in the possession of the oppressor, is the mind of the oppressed. 

The greatest weapon in the possession of the domestic abuser is the heart, mind and soul of his victim. It is the basis of his ability to control his victim. The strangest dynamic to witness is how oftentimes the abusers insidious ability to flip the script to have the victim believing that “she” was responsible for him beating her up.  

This tactic of reverse psychology is akin to the fox blaming the chicken for being a meal for the fox. The treacherous nature of this tactic is simply to burden the victim with a ever growing overweighted sense of false guilt, and thereby meant to lessen her self-esteem in order to worship and raise his arrogance of delusional grandeur of being a real man, when the true fact of the matter is that he is a real punk. 

Let the young Women know from now, that no male, money or bling is ever equal to the value of there precious self-esteem. Let all Women practice a non-compromising attitude for any red flags symptomatic of anger issues within a potential mate. Don’t make the same mistake as many before you have made in attempting to be the “Rescuer of an Angry Man…” 

Every Woman deserves to be loved, cherished and to have a faithful relationship conducive to a lasting and violence free marriage.  

The only thing that must always supersede that blessing is the inner oath of a deeply personal self love.  One that is not narcissistic, but has a mental, spiritual and emotional allegiance to the highest quality of life conducive to her peace of mind, joy of happiness and immeasurable self worth.

truthful perceptions: nature

For some unmitigated reason, I’ve had to contend with the most overwhelming brilliance.  A mystical find of greatest importance, and yet treated daily with underwhelming significance to a majority of humanity, simply by virtue of our content with its existence.  

Well I for one refuse to be so disingenuously idle about this event, and I will not just sit back and take the magnitude of this blessing for granted.  Isn’t it just like human nature to subsequently throw under the bus those things of the most significance to our lives,. and yet bally-hoo about the most unimportant things and blow them up to huge proportions of worship.

For example, professional Sports. The manner in which we as humans, or at least a large portion of us deem the existence of sports as religious events rather than mere entertainment is mind boggling. Professional athletes are treated as gods to be worshipped while humans vulnerable to the addiction of gambling will go as far as losing their homes on gambling debts to bookies, or through foreclosure for using mortgage money for betting.  I’ll pass.

I played sports and love to watch the action just as much as the next guy, but all within reason and proportion. I’m also greatly partial to the beauty of the Sun, the Forests, Mountains, Oceans, and the Rivers that parlay themselves around this globe with a resplendent grandeur unequal to anything Man could possibly dream up.  That’s the overwhelming brilliance I speak of.

Why?  Because it lays upon mine heart the equivalent gift and blessing of Virtuous Women given unto Men through GOD. I call attention to this equivalent phenomena not to be disrespectful or facetious, nor to accommodate my conscience for some undue act of immorality.

I raise this empirical point for it is the Virtuous Woman that enhances a Man to be the best he may gainfully strive for himself to be.  It is the Virtuous Woman of whom inspires a Man to first marry himself to the acts of courage in his life, were he to then secondly become impressive enough for a Woman’s attention, admiration and attraction to a confident Man. 

The brevity of life hones our necessity to sharpen the arrows of wisdom to the people, places and things, most meaningful to our lives. I would pray that Men of all walks of life would lessen themselves to those things immaterial and vain, and hasten respectfully in contemplation to the inner beauty of Virtuous Women that surrounds us each and everyday.  Through supporting the efforts of a Virtuous Woman, we morally ground ourselves. When making exceptions of time within our busy schedules on behalf of a Virtuous Woman, we gainfully strengthen the spiritual cords that bind us all.  

We then learn the true meaning of faithful interdependence with each other, while lifting  the currency  of love through mutual respect as the greatest of all abilities accorded to our spiritual human nature.
