Follow your heart

What does it mean to be a spiritual man today? How can men consciously express their masculinity without becoming cold or closed-hearted on the one hand… or wimpy and emasculated on the other? What is the most loving way for a spiritual man to express himself?

Here is one of many ways to live more consciously as a spiritual man:

Make real decisions.

A spiritual man understands and respects the power of choice. He lives a life of his own creation. He knows that life stagnates when he fails to decide and flourishes when he chooses a clear path.

When a spiritual man makes a decision, he opens the door he wants and closes the doors he does not want. He locks onto his target like a guided missile. There’s no guarantee he will reach his target, and he knows this, but he doesn’t need such guarantees. He simply enjoys the sense of inevitability that comes from pushing the launch button.

A spiritual man does not require the approval of others. He is willing to follow his heart wherever it leads him. When a spiritual man is following his heart-centered path, it is of little consequence if the entire world is against him.
