Be the Buddha

Instead of quoting the Buddha,
be the Buddha.

Eckhart Tolle

Essential First Step

Self-understanding is an essential first step for men today. If a man is to be a good father to his son, or a good husband to his wife, he needs to know what he got, or wanted and didn't get, from his own father; how he was both strengthened and wounded by that relationship; how it has influenced his own fathering style and his own identity as a man.

Samuel Osherman

No Place

There's no place
for objective reality
in personal relationships.

Terrence Real

Teacher

A teacher teaches
what he needs to learn.

John Bradshaw

Respond

Try to respond to your partner
instead of reacting.

Adhijit Naskar

I Am a Lighthouse

I am a lighthouse rather than a lifeboat.
I do not rescue, but instead help others
to find their own way to shore, guiding
them by my example.

Modern Affirmation

Full Manhood

I don’t want to talk to you about what it takes to be a good Morani (warrior). I want to talk to you about what it takes to be a great Morani. To be a great Morani: When the moment calls for fierceness, nobody fucks with you. And when the moment calls for tenderness, you are not tender. You are very, very tender. And a great Morani knows which is which.
