"It may be a burden at times, but don't we get stronger by bearing burdens? By learning that it feels good to carry an appropriate amount of weight? Not so much to make us collapse, but enough to feel and function in a healthy way. And if a…"

Manliness down deep...a bit more

Posted on November 16, 2014 at 12:05pm 0 Comments

If you have not read my earlier blog entry, “Manliness down deep” the following paragraphs will suffice as an introduction. If you have already read that, continue at the break marked “----------------“.

In the emotional and spiritual realm, men are finding safe places to bare their souls every bit as much as they would bare their bodies in a locker room and showers. No matter what our physical bodies may appear to be, as varied as they are, inside each is a man carrying…

Our Core of Masculinity

Posted on August 21, 2014 at 6:57am 0 Comments

Our core of masculinity, mine and yours,

Is like a holy of holies, a source into which God pours

Oil of gladness

Not just to anoint, but for fuel to fill the golden candlesticks

To burn and shine and power, to give us light in difficult hour.

Why then do we have such trouble this holy place accessing?

Do we fear the awesome power? Do we seek to control the blessing?

Are we preoccupied with our manly flesh so visible to others?

Is all that matters how I…

A poem from young manhood

Posted on May 9, 2014 at 7:30am 1 Comment

I had hesitated to post this, since it might be misunderstood, and I really hate being misunderstood. So I sent a group message describing my quandary, and I now forget what group it was...Buck Naked, I think. After getting zero replies, and now having a bit of time to handle it, have decided to post this gem of naive and raw masculinity from my late teens or early 20s. I have shared it with a few men who say that it did resonate with them, and so I am…
