I have an article below to demonstrate why this is happening and why it is keeping men from being fully alive in their deeper masculinity for the greater good in their lives.
Men Going It Alone: Secret Pain Men Carry and How To Embody Deeper Masculinity
By Daniel John Hanneman
It has been happening for a long time that men around the world (especially Western men) have gotten the message that you need “to be a man” and forge your own path by yourself.
In fact, it is although there is almost nothing else that could be as true “to be a man” and those that behave would seek support from others would have been seen as weak historically.
In recent decades, there has been a shift of among some men awakening to being more open to being supported in many ways (including emotionally) due to many factors (social, societal, parenting, etc..) and they have become in some cases more feminized.
And, yet, there are so many men that are stuck in what I call the “nice guy act” (be a nice man and be sensitive) because that is what they were taught growing up with this but at the same time they are given the message in many ways to “be a man” (including “don’t be weak ever”; “tough it out”; “keep your feelings to yourself”; “don’t be vulnerable”).
It is no wonder that especially awakening men are feeling so confused with these conflicting messages for so long.
This has definitely left many men feeling bound by the straight jacket of so-called manhood and emasculated at the same time to be sensitive (not one of those jerk men) but don’t show your feelings because that is being weak and “like a girl”.
The independent, strong man type is what has been the definition subconsciously for what a man is for a very long time here in the United States especially.
There is nothing wrong for those that fit that bill perfectly in a healthy way and it is simply lacking for many men as a model for the own deeper awakening into their deeper masculinity.
When these awakening men that have felt more connected to their feminine nature for a long time start to embrace their masculinity with the support of other men, they will finally shed the many masks and limiting egoistic ways of the old paradigm of the strong, independent guerrilla guy that never truly fit for them.
Even these awakening men have been carrying emotions and stress that they will not share with others because it is not manly (in clear and subtle ways this shows up for them).
For a man to be honest about the SECRET PAIN that he feels in it all would be like “man suicide” is his fear and he would likely may feel like a total failure… until now… men are waking up… starting to see there is more power and potential that has been hidden from them… and now is waking up inside of them…
There is an awakening happening collectively for men that is just beginning to reveal itself into a whole new level of awakening that can end this old limiting game of so-called manhood and have men feeling deeply masculine without going it alone or feeling like they are being emasculated.
There is a calling for awakening men that want to serve the world with their most powerful gifts to open to deep love and acknowledgement of who they are as MEN (the love they always fought because it was not seen as manly for many of us).
There is a real need for awakening men to be supported in this process to become the powerful leaders of this collective awakening that is just beginning to emerge now.
In response to this happening, we have created an amazing opportunity for awakening men to step forward to gain this support through an online event called the Enlightened Men’s Movement Summit.
This is an entirely FREE and powerful way to start to stop going it alone as a man.
Begin to understand what is this awakening all about for you and for all the awakening men that feel the same way.
This is a way to take a stand for men coming together to support each other in their deeper needs and to see what it means to embody ENLIGHTENED MASCULINITY that make makes them come alive with life that has been buried away through so much past social/societal condition.
Together, I see awakening men supporting other awakening men as leaders that will ignite shifts that will allow men to live much more vibrant, powerful, and enlivening lives to bring forth greater fulfillment to their world and every area of their on lives.
Join us for FREE for the Enlightened Men’s Movement Summit to lead together the way for us to continue to explore what it means to be a man for you and see what wants to emerge for you as a man in your greatest life that awaits you.
