Masculinity As A Positive Force.

A person whom i admire very much, Bruce Lee, it’s linked to today’s topic and i thought mentioning him was a thing it felt right.

Bruce, in my book – is a perfect example of Masculinity : He was an overall achiever, he had objectives on which he never gave up (The acting career) and he was, and probably still is the greatest Martial Artist the world has ever known.

Masculinity today, at times it’s seen like a (and let me put emphasis on the quotes) “”Toxic”” trait.

I completely disagree with that, as it is something that’s intrinsic to the very nature of a man, how can something we’re born with be toxic?

And apart from that, masculinity is a strong and positive force, Men’s situation are changed because of it, are inspired to do good because of it, they take ACTION to better their (and other’s!) life because of it.

Here’s a video that explains it in a very good way – it’s a short video but it’s full of meaning when confronted with a lot of stupid nonsense some people are spouting nowadays. Watch it if you have time:

Now, why do i associate masculinity with Bruce Lee? well, i think that when a Man rises against all odds to realize something that’s really dear to his heart- that’s when he really shines.

And that’s exactly what Bruce did.

Bruce was the “peak of human strength and performance”, but he didn’t accomplish all of this overnight, of course – behind his success there’s a tortuous and long process that was necessary for achieving his strength.

While he enjoyed to stay in (stellar) shape but more importantly to Fight, in this way he wanted to show others (but first and foremost he did this for himself, to better his abilities) that he was the best – you know, some good competition that gave as a fruit the obvious, sought after byproduct of Mastery.

And here comes the good part :

But why does a man put himself into so much trouble to accomplish something? you’d think it’s just to satisfy himself right?

Yes…
BUT NO.

While Martial arts can be seen as destructive, it teaches men (and Women, even though these tendencies are more prominent in Men) not to just “be stronger” which in itself is a byproduct – but to Protect something, someone, dear to them.


The rising of certain characteristics such as Heroism, Selflessness, Sacrifice, Kindness, Relentlessness – always spurs because of a greater reason that you can’t see on the surface, martial arts it’s just an example very dear to me, but there are countless different situations – as you’ve seen in the video – where masculinity can be applied to.

In the end, masculinity shouldn’t be overwhelmed with attacks that won’t really go anywhere, as it’s not synonym of violence, as some degenerates love to claim.

Like femininity, masculinity it’s simply a collection of traits found since the birth of human beings, into men.

For both sexes not to express themselves like nature programmed them to, it’s foolish and unnatural, and what REALLY should be “condemned” it’s the toxicity of an individual itself.

No one, I repeat : NO ONE should be attacked and belittled for expressing these beautiful qualities that makes humanity – Human.

Have a great day!
Take care.

Gratitude And its Jewels.

Sometimes, or a lot of times I should say, I find myself in deep thought – the kind of thinking in which you’re not satisfied until you’ve explored every single facet of that thought, its pros & cons, its consequences, the impact that may have if you actually carried on with following through with that thought. That’s how i “met” gratitude.

But what is gratitude?

I think that gratitude is not just a feeling, not something you can get instantly like anger, joy, and happiness. Instead, it’s… A state of being.

Something that you can only discover day by day as you continuously move through life by being grateful and giving thanks:

For the air you breathe,

For the food you eat,

For the pain you feel,

For the chance you’ve been given to LIVE.

Those are just some examples, but you can be grateful for whatever you want really, for your enriching relationships and the people that loves you, for the material possessions that are helping you to live life with more comfort…the possibilities are endless, you can find gratitude everywhere – you just have to be still and…actually look for it, feel it, wait for the feeling to manifest, don’t force it because it will happen naturally.

What if all these things that you take for granted suddenly disappeared from your life- how would you feel? wouldn’t you rather feel at peace with everything around you?

I know I do.

The gifts of gratitude are very concrete yet very abstract in my opinion. At times gratitude won’t make itself visible until you’ve lost something very valuable to you, even. Only then you will understand. But just losing something won’t let you experience it, you must couple the loss you feel with the feeling and decision to Start over and try searching for it, especially if you just came out of a difficult situation.

Then, in the end, after you’ve been through all this and finally started giving value to everything important in your life, only THEN those gifts will appear, you will be at peace with yourself and everything that surrounds you, you will have a new outlook on life- and the problems that before seemed daunting and caused you anxiety or trouble will seem trivial and funny! and these are only minor effects that gratitude will cast upon you.

BUT...

You must take the lifelong effort of searching, maintaining and expressing that feeling NO MATTER WHAT.


In a way that someday will become who you are:

Truly grateful.

Visualizing As A Way to Prepare for Success

While i’m not a fan on relying completely on this method, (because, let’s be REAL for a moment-you need action to manifest things) taking the time to visualize the things you desire must not be underestimated, because like i said before-if coupled with RUTHLESS ACTION (am i sounding like Napoleon Hill yet?) you can be sure to be on the right path to manifest whatever!

Visualizing your goals, like: where are you going to live in a few years, your dream car, the job you want, the partner you seek, ecc.. can put yourself in that new mindset that is needed to attract those things, you’re preparing yourself and saying to your subconscious mind that you are “ready” for those things to happen, and as a byproduct you’re subconsciously starting to develop and gravitate towards the traits, habits or characteristics that a person who possess those things acts like! it’s not magic or wishful thinking.

Doing so can really give you that “what’s like to have that” feeling, that is so important especially when you’re going through hard times\challenges that can discourage you daily. You’re literally creating those situations in your mind so that you can see what it’s like to be there, what’s needed to actually get there (by calmly seeing how you would accomplish that in a relaxed state) and so that you can prepare for whatever challenges that might come with getting all of those things.

Just find a quiet place and if you’re already used to it, go in a meditative state- and if not, just close your eyes, breathe deeply and sit quietly while working towards those thoughts, and try to feel like you’re already where you want to be for an extended period of time, joyfully lose track of time and allow yourself to relax and see ,feel and enjoy the process along with what you’re visualizing, don’t hold back and go in much detail as possible.

You will find that by doing this daily you will automatically be more relaxed (as this is a sort of meditation too) centered and happy, as well as developing the things you need to get those dreamy stuff of yours-which are usually personality traits at the moment missing in your persona.

Try this out for a week or so, and let me know how you feel 🙂

The Current Disruption between relationships.

The thought that relationships are being somewhat disrupted- be it by society’s “new” norms, by paranoid thoughts or by even nothingness has been knocking on the doors of my mind. Because it seems that NOBODY is able to give without expecting something in return. And why would they, right? we only think of our own gain – truly, we are selfish creatures now more than ever.

Lately i’ve been seing on the web, and in my everyday life, that always more standards are being enforced on males and females when it comes to relationships (romantic and not)- or should i say rules, ways to act to gain whatever you need from the other person.

“Act like this so he will miss you, act like that so that she will give you a blowjob, say that thing so the others in the group will validate you” And so on. I honestly find all of this pathetic.

This is basically how you annihilate your personality and close yourself off from any TRUE bond.

Why? because you’re no longer trying to form a fucking connection with that individual, instead you’re looking to GAIN something from them- don’t get me wrong, it’s not inherently bad to gain something from a relationship- but when ALL THAT YOU’RE LOOKING FOR is to gain, then i think there’s something out of place in the way we think of connections with others. You’re not acting like yourself anymore, you are just wearing a mask so that you are able to manipulate someone else in getting you the things you need, that’s why most relationships are short lived nowadays- do you think this approach can work long-term with another human being? HELL NO.

And while we can keep being scared because of our past traumas and bad experiences we must understand that the only way to stop shallowness from seeping into our society is to hold onto meaningful values (that are oh-so badly seen) that have been around for centuries and actually open ourselves to others while being SELFLESS! that’s the only way to let your unique character shine through all of this indifference we have sadly being accustomed to. Playing games with each other needs to go out of fashion.

And that is, in my opinion, the only way to a real connected world.
