¿WHO WILL SHED A TEAR?

In the best of all possible worlds
Where love N’ life twirls
Is a space beyond this place
Where haste and waste
And contradictions contradict
And everything left behind tries to fit
Because opposites just sit
I often wonder, that’s it?

They often say ‘perfection’ is not an accident
But was ‘perfection’ HIS intent?
I in my mind
Search the recesses to find…
To vent and invent
That ‘perfection’ and HE are[n’t] in consent
But to prevent any mis-spent discontent
HIS life/death is NOT a little theater event!

Inconceivably inconsiderable
And insurmountably miserable
What can be worse than worse?
Except the tears we don’t shed.
Then NOTHING else matters
Just smatters and tatters
That to some THEY don’t matter
Just a matter of lack
A tactless tact
Shatters me to tatters
And that's a matter of fact

For in the home of the departed
In all the wonder of words
That cut as deep as knives
That flies beyond the beyond
This poem speaking for the dead mouths
And now departed
Taking a home on the range
How deranged
They are in the home of the departed
And our memories are just bartered
And yet I ask,
Who will shed a tear?

30 DAYS TO A BETTER MAN DAY 30: GET A STRAIGHT RAZOR SHAVE

At last! We’ve finally made it to the last day of the 30 Days to a Better Man Challenge. It’s been a tough 30 days. Hopefully, the tasks we came up with helped you stretch, grow, and become a better man. Today’s final task will both complete this process and reward your efforts during the past month. Today’s challenge is to get an old fashioned straight razor shave from a barber.

RELIGION VS ATHEISM

30 DAYS TO A BETTER MAN DAY 29: CONQUER A FEAR

Fear can be a good thing.  It’s a biological instinct that prevents us from doing stupid things that might kill us. For example, fear kicks in with good reason when we see a slithering snake or look over the edge of a cliff.
Unfortunately, fear is not always rational and not always healthy. Thus, our heart races when we’re getting on a plane but not when we’re driving, even though we have a far greater chance of dying while behind the wheel. And while fear works to prevent us from physical pain, it can also hold us back from the chance at both the pain of a crushed ego and the exhilaration of victory and success.

MISSING YOU



"Missing You" is a song by BrandyGladys KnightChaka Khan, and Tamia, recorded for the soundtrack of the 1996motion picture Set It Off. Written andy produced by Gordon Chambers and Barry Eastmond, it was released as a single in August 1996 (see 1996 in music). The collaboration peaked at number 2 in New Zealand and number 25 on the U.S.Billboard Hot 100, making it Tamia's chart debut. In 1997, "Missing You" was nominated for a Grammy Award in the category "Best Pop Vocal Performance By A Duo Or Group". 


I posted this song for the family and friends of Maurice Murrell. I hope that they get to the day where their sadness actually creates space for them to begin the healing process.

30 DAYS TO A BETTER MAN DAY 28: WRITE A LOVE LETTER

We previously discussed the idea that every man should strive to be a romantic lover, and how the date is one of a man’s best tools for wooing a gentleman/lady. A man’s other major tool in the romance department is the love letter. As long as love (and writing utensils) has existed, so has the love letter. It has been the go to way for millions of men throughout history to confess or reiterate their feelings of love for another.

OLDIE, BUT GOODIE: ¿GETMEBODIED?

30 DAYS TO A BETTER MAN DAY 27: START A BOOK

1 in 4 American adults did not read a single book last year. Those who did read books were usually women and older folk. This doesn’t bode well for younger men.  It’s not that younger men aren’t reading. They’re probably reading plenty on blogs or on their Tweetdeck. But reading snippets from blogs and websites is a completely different experience than reading a good old fashioned book. With a book you can get completely immersed in a story and suck out the marrow of good ideas. With the internet, you tend to just get blips of information at a time. It’s never enough to gain the kind of immersive experience and broad picture that a whole book gives you.
Today, we’re going to turn the page (so to speak) on the dearth of men not reading books. But before we begin, let’s just quickly review some of the benefits of reading.

THE PSYCHO HOMOSEXUAL...

This blog entry is about those men that we met and started a world wind ‘sex relationship’ with. I know many of you smile as I do because in thinking about my brushes with the men in my past, I sit and remember how our ‘sex relationship’ took off. It started with some nice teasing, he is just my type and the mutual attraction was instantaneous. The bedroom is soon filled with cries of ecstasy and refreshing honesty (so I thought).

After a while the passion dies (and it will) you find yourself dealing with a man that wants more than sex. And suddenly, without even realizing it, you got a dreaded psycho-homo on your hands. He starts showing up announced, calling friends to find out who you are ‘dating’ (ok f&cking) in order to scare them off, he even follows you to places he know you hang. How do you deal with such a man? Share your INTERESTING stories with the blogoverse.

30 DAYS TO A BETTER MAN DAY 26: TAKE THE MARINE CORP FITNESS TEST

During the 30 Days to a Better Man project, we’ve been doing a lot exercises for our mind and character, but it’s equally important to exercise our bodies. A man’s health is his most important asset. If you suffer from chronic health problems, it can take a toll on your job, on your bank account, on your family, and on your psyche. And being out of shape and unhealthy saps one’s manly confidence and spirit. Unfortunately, for the past few decades, the fitness level of men, particularly American men, has been going down hill. With cars replacing walking as the primary mode of transportation and desk jobs replacing manual labor, men have become more and more sedentary.

REST IN PEACE MAURICE

FELT YOUR ENERGY WHEN I SAW YOU. REST IN PEACE!

30 DAYS TO A BETTER MAN DAY 25: START A DEBT REDUCTION PLAN

Since I’ve graduated law school, I’ve been taking a look at the debt Kate and I have accumulated during our time in school. And it isn’t pretty. I hate debt.  I hate the feeling of owing another person money. I hate thinking, “Oh good, I have x amount in savings!” And then realizing that when I take into account how much debt I have, I actually have nothing to my name.
Some debt is necessary for getting ahead in life and building a future. But there are few things more emasculating than excessive debt. A man should strive to be as self-reliant as possible. To be able to stand on his own two feet. To be able to plan for the future without being hobbled by the past. To be free from the shackles of dependencies. To live without another man looking over his shoulder.

¡HAPPY EARTH~DAY NOEL!


I am there
You cannot see me, yet I am the light you see by.
You cannot here me, yet I speak through your voice.
You cannot feel me, yet I am the power at work in your hands...
I am at work, though you do not understand my ways.
...I am at work, though you do not recognise my works.
I am not strange visions. I am not mysteries.
Only in absolute stillness, beyond self, can you know me
as I am, and then but as a feeling and a faith.
Yes I am there. Yet I hear. Yet I answer.
When you need me, I am there.
Even if you deny me, I am there.
Even when you feel most alone, I am there.
Even in your fears, I am there.
Even in your pain, I am there.
I am there when you pray and when you do not pray.
I am in you and you are in me.
Only in your mind can you feel separate from me, for
only in your mind are the mists of "yours" and "mine".
Yet only in your mind can you know me and experience me.
Empty your heart of empty fears.
When you get yourself out of the way, I am there.
You can of yourself do nothing but I can do all.
And I am all.
Though you may not see good, good is there, for I am there.
I am there because I have to be, because I am.
Only in me does the world have meaning; only out of me does
the world take form; only because of me does the world go forward.
I am the law on which the movement of the stars and the growth of
living cells are founded.
I am the love that is the law's fulfilling.
I am assurance.
I am peace.
I am oneness.
I am the law that you can live by.
I am the love that you can cling to.
I am your assurance.
I am your peace.
I am one with you.
I am.
Though you fail to find me, I do not fail you.
Though your faith in me is unsure, my faith in you never wavers,
because I know you, because I love you.
Beloved, I am there.
~James Dillet Freeman

30 DAYS TO A BETTER MAN DAY 24: PLAY!

When you think fondly about your boyhood days, you probably think about the time you spent playing. While we now associate playing with toys, your best memories probably don’t involve plastic crap at all. You likely think about catching fireflies, building dirt ramps for your bike, playing capture the flag, having dirt clod fights, playing wall ball, and hunting for sparrows with your BB gun.
As we got older, those endless summer nights of play came to an end as we were expected to take on more responsibility and act more “grown up.” We accepted new rules about how to behave and what to prioritize. We stopped playing and started working.

¡WORD WAS BOND!

"We came out of a society that did not write out agreements. If we said something verbally, our mouth was sweet. That meant we could be trusted, and we didn't have to write it into law. If anybody sees you crating a pattern, they know it's yours. You don't have to copyright the pattern because nobody's going to steal it. Once more we see honor and obligation running through the totality of our society and the totality of ourselves." - John Henrik Clarke

30 DAYS TO A BETTER MAN DAY 23: LEARN A MANUAL SKILL

I read an interesting article in Sunday’s New York Times where the editors asked 8 artists to draw a portrait of their fathers and name one thing that their dad can/could do, but they can’t. The answers were interesting and made me think of the things that my dad can do that I can’t. Like clean a gun. And skin a deer. While it’s not universally true, among people my age, it seems our dads are a lot handier than we are. Sometimes I imagine what would happen if there was a terrorist attack or natural disaster that wiped out our electricity and disrupted society. How many of us would be standing on our lawns, scratching our heads, absolutely clueless about what to do next?

REVIEW OF FAST FIVE



                            
Fast Five is the latest in high octane speed franchise that is Fast and Furious. It reunites the usual cast from the previous films and for the first time Dwayne '' The Rock'' Johnson. True to form this high speed action flick starts off with a wild and daring escape,where Brian O'Conner (Paul Walker) and  Mia Toretto   In the opening scene Brian O'Conner (Paul Walker) and Mia Toretto (Jordana Brewster) break Dom Toretto Vin Diesel) out of custody.

30 DAYS TO A BETTER MAN DAY 22: IMPROVE YOUR POSTURE

They are the battle cries of moms and elementary school teachers all over the world: “Sit up straight!” and “Stop slouching!” Despite what our third grade minds may have thought, sitting up straight wasn’t a stress position used to break unruly children. Believe it or not, our parents and teachers had a reason for issuing these demands. They intuitively knew of the health and psychological benefits people with proper posture enjoyed, and they were just trying instill the habit into our young, impressionable minds. To their disappointment, we probably ignored them and went on with our slouching ways.
But today we’re going to redeem ourselves. Today we’re going to improve our posture.

¡THE RETURN OF CHRIST!

Judgment Day is coming May 21, 2011 -- not sometime this decade, not sometime this year, but precisely on May 21.



30 DAYS TO A BETTER MAN DAY 21: WRITE YOUR OWN EULOGY

It’s something all of us have imagined at one time or another. What would it be like to die and attend our own funeral? Who would be there? How many people would come? Will the woman who spurned our love be devastated and finally realize how great we were? Will someone you thought you were close with be surprisingly composed?

OLDIE, BUT GOODIE: "FEM ON TOP"

30 DAYS TO A BETTER MAN DAY 20: PERFORM SERVICE

When we think about moments that epitomize manliness, we often think of the captain going down with the ship, the men who allow the women and children to go first, the soldier who throws himself on a grenade to shield his brothers from the blow, the old man who attempts to save a drowning child and perishes himself in the waves. The common denominator in such scenarios is this: sacrifice. Sacrifice is arguably the manliest of virtues. It is the ability to give up our desires, sometimes even our lives, to aid and benefit someone else.

¿EQUALITY IS SOCIETAL SUICIDE?

It's clear ANY victory on our part would stir the hornets' nest; and though we've stood up to ugly attacks more times that I care to count, I can’t help but ask, is our quest for equality worth the ‘societal suicide’ that comes with it? 

30 DAYS TO A BETTER MAN DAY 19: SCHEDULE A PHYSICAL EXAM

Men are reluctant to pay a visit to the man in the white coat. Studies have shown that more than half of the men in the United States have not been to see a doctor in the past year. And 55% of men admit that they are reluctant to visit the doctor. When we do go, we usually wait until we’re missing an arm or have a javelin stuck through our head.

¿HOW ABOUT THAT 'AMERICAN DREAM'?

The American Dream is a national ethos of the United States in which freedom includes a promise of the possibility of prosperity and success. In the definition of the American Dream by James Truslow Adams in 1931, "life should be better and richer and fuller for everyone, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement" regardless of social class or circumstances of birth.[1] The idea of the American Dream is rooted in the United States Declaration of Independence which proclaims that "all men are created equal" and that they are "endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable Rights" including "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

¿WHAT DOES THE AMERICAN DREAM MEAN TO YOU?

30 DAYS TO A BETTER MAN DAY 18: FIND YOUR N.U.T.s

One of the most important challenges facing every good man who wants to be better is to know exactly what he’s committed to. Without a clear understanding of what is acceptable and what is not, a man is untethered, and likely to find himself down a path of compromise, resentment and despair. So, what’s a better man to do? Find his N.U.T.s and maintain a firm grasp.
