by Daniel Nielsen:
An awakened man is a warrior of the heart.
He has heard the deeper calling.
He is conscious of his feelings and speaks the language of love.
He sees the beauty of the world around him, is present-minded, and knows the ways of the divine.
He is compassionate, authentically cares about people, and has the highest respect for the feminine.
He adores the woman who calls to his soul, knows how to listen and communicate to her heart, and understands how to satisfy her deepest desires.
He is comfortable being vulnerable, looks for the answers within, and is not afraid to surrender to truth.
He learns from the pain that each life-lesson teaches him, admits when he is wrong, and is always accountable for his actions.
He actively uses his sword with a dual purpose — to strip away his own ego so the light can stream in while also protecting those he loves.
He is a champion of those who do not have a voice, strength to those who need encouragement, and a light to the ones who have lost their way.
He is confident and strong, but he is also a promoter of peace, an agent of humility, and a model of grace and forgiveness.
He calls to other conscious men to join the revolution, to lay down their ego, and with true masculine energy, demonstrate what it means to be a man who is connected to his heart.
