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…

Masculinity...(lol.....what else?!)

A good friend and brother (not on AoM) wrote:



"Learning to enjoy and self-affirm my own God-given birthright of intrinsic masculinity. There is something incredibly testosterone rich with a healthy self appraisal."

And so I was inspired to comment:

Often, in my experience, I can get full of myself, ignoring the humbling areas in which my growth is most-needed. As if that revelry were to balance out the shadow places. But it IS about balance. And like…

A poem from young manhood

Posted on May 9, 2014 at 7:30am 0 Comments

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…

The Great Debate

"Iron sharpens iron." A place for men to impact each other by debate and exchange of ideas. This is a group where no ideas are off limits. If your motto is, "I never talk about politics or religion," this group is probably not for you. A "gym" for thinkers.See More

Date Night Ideas

Romance is manly. And every man should know how to plan a great night out for his woman. But, let's face it, sometimes ideas are few and far between. This group is for exchanging ideas about the venerable "Date Night" and other acts of romance.
