Invitation to the Conscious Men

He is Not ok to receive, unable to express his hurt or even love, not ok with chaos or conflict, driven by patriarchal definitions of being a man, unable to Express his heart, his weakness and his vulnerability, he is driven by what society expects of a man to be.

What am I if I am not my name or social status or a father or a mother or a brother or a friend? Do I know what I’m doing and why I’m doing it when I’m doing it? Why am I here?

My life has started to revolve around these questions more and more as I’ve started to face myself – in front of the mirror, in front of a begging child with no legs, in front of the stray animal that needs me more than I can ever understand. I call this “becoming conscious”. Conscious of myself, my fellow earthlings, the nature, the universe and the laws that govern us. I tend to believe when many a scientists discover something in nature, they aren’t doing it out of necessity. They are doing it out of curiosity that has them spellbound to that one moment when their question will be answered. But did they ever really know the question fully? More often than not, don’t they get more than what they bargained for? That’s nature, the feminine aspect of our existence, that is forever prepared to give to its children. The curiosity however, and the action ensuing it, is masculine – an eternal desire to do, accomplish, prove, manifest. Each feeling within us all has a masculine and a feminine attached to it.

Ever since these parts were discovered, brought forward to our conscious minds and made available for study, it was found that the world has grown incredibly masculine, maniacally power hungry to the point of toxicity that needs urgent attention, to the point that it doesn’t understand the feminine at all. There is a crisis brewing and we don’t know what to do about it at all. And hence, the world today is diving deep into the feminine energy of the planet, tapping into its reserves to find out what it means to truly feel ourselves, our skin, our emotions and remaining true to our most authentic essence.

However this message needs to reach people who are currently unaware of who they truly are. This task has been taken up by a few people, chosen by the spirit itself, and those who’ve made it a goal of their lives to teach masculine and feminine to the world. One amongst those rare ones is Neelam Nanwani. She has extensive experience of teaching the feminine to women and has helped them remind themselves of their feminine essence and helped embody it too. While several have taken up the task of teaching the feminine to the female, she has decided to work with the males too and teach them how to discover and embody their own forgotten femininity.

Here is what she has to say –

I see most men disconnected from their feminine essence. They may be good intuitively and possess amazing psychic/spiritual gifts but yet each man is unable to emote and EXPRESS what he is truly feeling.

He is Not ok to receive, unable to express his hurt or even love, not ok with chaos or conflict, driven by patriarchal definitions of being a man, unable to Express his heart, his weakness and his vulnerability, he is driven by what society expects of a man to be.

He worships the goddess but truly doesn’t understand Her.

He longs to be a good son, a good father, a good husband… But what is this good? Is it good for his own soul, his own body, his own heart????

His words, actions, doing is all driven by the masculine and that too is also wounded because a man who has not yet understood and integrated the feminine will be a wounded man and will continue operating out of wounded masculine, no matter what.

What goes on in his body and heart? Is he able to voice it fearlessly? Share it with what he is going through and churning with? How difficult it is for a man to share his heart with the other and talk about his feelings and emotions? The only emotion most men understand and embody is anger (many a times).

He is finding answers but is lost not knowing many a times where to look and how to begin. Will he look at the Divine Mother for help and leading the way. Can he truly trust and surrender??

Is a man ok with the unknown and chaos within himself? Can he express to his friend, teacher, acquaintance, client, partner, wife, mother – how incomplete does he feel within and what is that something amiss?

The Divine Mother beckons . Will he listen ? To be guided, to he HELD, to break down, to cry his pain out??

Will he allow?? Will he beckon to my invitation??

Along with Neelam, I invite all of you to join this incredibly powerful path breaking journey for all men, call to discover your feminine essence and in turn realize our divine masculine too –

Choices

Ever felt like being stretched from your hands and legs, spread eagled in the air, helpless, caught by the people whom you so despise but you once trusted with all your heart? I think I’m going through a period when I’m now so used to this feeling that it feels more like an exercise. Everyday, I’m stretched painfully in either direction, emotionally. I have no clue when I’ll break but tension is high and I feel it in my veins. This isn’t normal – the way I’m trying to live, castrated by the things I’ve so loved. Brainwash seems imminent!

Anyways, that’s about me. Regarding this stretching, have you ever noticed how there’s always a power struggle between the ones who tend to take the middle path and the ones who don’t. Let’s call the former as ‘M’ for middle path and ‘B’ for clearly biased.

M’s, I think, are closer to attaining spiritual freedom, for they tend to keep their heads still, and always try to weigh the outcome of either of the choices. These are the people, whose focus is set at equality, and that they must never hurt anyone with their choices. They are often more articulate than most. These people tend to use a proper combination of heart and brain to weigh their options. These are also the people who’ll stay confused for far longer than most and don’t tend to come to conclusions until their set criteria is met.

The B’s though, tend to think more from their heart than their minds. They have a tendency to start building an opinion after they have elected for an option which makes them rather more prejudiced and prone to making mistakes. These are also the people, more hasty and unclear in their thinking. Their world revolves more around showing off than actual reasoning. These often have high egos which further prohibits clear thinking. They are also the people who tend to disturb the M’s more than anyone else. These people think, since they’ve made their choices early, they’ve got to have materialistic evidence to support their argument and this is where M’s come in.

B’s invite M’s to their side by telling them how lucrative and correct their side/argument is. B’s in this sense are manipulative as well. In short, B’s are often better equipped to take the world head on than the M’s. M’s hence find it even harder to make their choices. M’s are far more influenced than B’s who don’t leave a room for any further influence on their decisions than their own.

My friend narrated me the story of some man in American continent, who used to answer every question using just his right index finger. There were several attempts to figure out what exactly he meant by that index finger. Was it one, solitary? It was hard to find. Even when dying, the answer to the question about his index finger was… ‘an index finger’. Few years later, a very intelligent version of the finger arrived, in that, he always meant that “All is One”. That with experience we learn to take the middle road to happiness, in that the happiness of polarity in decisions becomes immaterial. That after a point in life, that one point, all your choices are correct. You have attained what’s called Spiritual Nirvana.

My argument, for which he had no answer was, is as follows –

What if the entire thing of that one focal point, is an alibi to escape the logics of the world and avoid all further scrutiny, an escape route? Viewing it from a different angle isn’t that one focal point also a side that we’ve taken. Don’t M’s become the B’s then? Aren’t we all scared again and running away? Is Spiritual Nirvana a prejudice?

For a person who makes his choices carefully and after a lot of thought, it’s so slippery, this world! For one single slip of thought and you will end up making the wrong choice, and for all M’s, it’s a huge setback. For B’s though, this situation/condition never materializes for they’ve already made their choice and are more often than not, ready to live with the repercussions.

I’ve made my choice and I am the middle-man, M.

What are you? M or B.
