One thing many people don't realize about me is that I can go deep. Very deep. I usually don't do so publically because the knowledge I can drop can go over people's heads. It doesn't do any good for me to share something and people have no idea what they read. That being said, we live in the time of the storm now. We have all this great technology now but socially human beings are regressing. As a race of beings we are going backwards. The average male/female relationship has gone from lasting three years to six months. We have all these medical advances and yet people are sicker that what they were 100 years ago.
The knowledge is there to turn things around. In the coming months I'm going to taking people higher. In that spirit I'm sharing one of my first blogs from October 2013. The House of the Man is taken from warrior traditions of indigenous societies from around the world. In these societies boys had to go through a rite of passage for the right to be called a man. Rites of passages are needed in this society. We have too many men in their thirties and forties who behave like teenaged boys. This would have been unacceptable in traditional cultures where a man was expected to be a husband, father, warrior, and hunter. Indigenous cultures may have lacked smart phones and cars but they knew how to evolve a human being.
Think on that for a bit.
Here is the "The House of the Man" blog from October 2013.
"The House of the Man" is the foundation of the spirit of man. There are four cornerstones or archetypes to this foundation. The four archetypes are the Warrior, the Hunter, the Eagle, and the Healer. The average man will have one dominant archetype while the others are dormant. Even in the case of the
dominant archetype the average man will not have full use of all the traits within that particular archetype.
The first archetype is the Warrior. The Warrior is protective, rigid, paternal, and aggressive. The Warrior is about the art and act of engagement. This engagement may involve physical confrontation but also includes economic, political, or legal battle. This is the man who is prepared to defend his household against an intruder. This is the man who will fight to get a school built or will stand against the violation of someone’s civil rights. When other men run, the warrior will stand his ground regardless of the consequences. The true warrior lives by a code of honor.
The next archetype is the Hunter. The Hunter is predatory, disciplined, persevering, and paternal. The man with this archetype dominant in his spirit has the ability to be accountable for and responsible for the welfare of others. The Hunter is the provider. He is at his best when he is taking care of his loved ones. This is the man who will work two jobs to provide for the material needs of his family.
The third archetype is the Eagle. The Eagle is the logical thinking, intellectual planner. If he wants to move his family out of an apartment to a house, he can see the steps needed to accomplish this goal. The Eagle is the man with a vision and the ability to turn that vision into reality.
The last, but not least archetype is the Healer. The Healer is holistic, balanced, sociable, artistic, and romantic. True healing is about restoring something to its natural state. The Healer heals not only himself but most importantly his mate and children. If he cannot personally heal his family he is responsible for finding the methods that can provide healing.
All men have at least one archetype dominant with limited access to the traits of the other archetypes. Even within their dominant archetype the average man may only have access to only a portion of the traits contained. For example, the Hunter may have the ability to get money and resources, but may not have the paternal instinct to provide for a family. The Healer may be able to charm women to satisfy his sexual needs but will not do what’s necessary to heal the women.
To be an optimal man, a man must work to develop all aspects of his spirit. A limitation with having a dominant archetype is that a man will have a worldview based on just that one archetype especially when it comes to dealing with women. The Hunter may feel it’s all about the money. He will think as long as he has enough money he can relate successfully with women. The Healer will think he can get by just on charm. The Eagle will feel like he can use logical reasoning to relate to women. The Warrior will feel all he needs to do is provide security. The worldviews of each archetype affects other aspects of life outside of relationships. The more a man can develop all aspects of himself the more he can succeed in life.
