A Genuine Brotherhood in Truth

The importance and significance of being part of the Awakened Life Men's Group only became clearer as I was already involved in it for some time. Never could I have guessed how far reaching, subtle and limiting gender conditioning can be. Through our shared inquiry I have seen and felt how painful the self imposed culture of patriarchy and male superiority was and is or both genders and how we are usually unaware of it. How heartbreakingly painful to feel how that love which we ARE is so often denied expression and equally painful the desperate longing to receive it.

How sacred and precious this circle of men is where we can learn to relax in our humanity, deeply trust and let go of the the harshness of the conditioned position we usually hold onto (some degree or other of pride, fear and aggression) and like a sigh of relief just turn up as who we really are: open, tender, soft and vulnerable. Actually 'relating', and 'be related to' for REAL; meeting and being met. Finally not alone - and yet being as much one as we will ever be.

Perhaps, the highest quality of this men group is the ground on which we walk and from which a genuine brotherhood in truth can arise. This is not merely a circle to discover in ourself the expression of an authentic manhood for our time, although that is included, but rather to discover the truth of who we really are beyond gender, and abide in that in such a way that we may become the expression of that love and Spirit together as One.
