No. 2 – January 11, 2018
My name is Chad Mast. Welcome to The Masculine Fire.
After telling a good friend of mine about starting this blog she said, “Okay, well, I don’t think I can relate much to that, but I like that you’re working on it.”
What I want my readers to understand is that this blog isn’t dedicated solely to men. Yes, the things I’m writing about are going to be written from a male perspective but that doesn’t mean that The Masculine Fire applies solely to males. We all operate from a mix of masculine and feminine energies; even you cutthroat, hardcore, ego-driven, ‘manliest’ of men have feminine energy inside of you.
What character traits are commonly associated with masculine energy?
TRAITS ASSOCIATED WITH MASCULINE ENERGY:
This list is not all-inclusive. These are just a few examples.
So, what is my interpretation of the masculine fire? It’s the energy, the force that comes from deep within you and pushes you to be the best version of yourself that you can be. It’s what encourages you to seek knowledge and pass your wisdom on to those around you. It’s what drives you to face your fears head-on and look them in the eye and say, ‘You will not own me anymore.’ It’s what forces you to your feet when you feel like you’ve fallen for the last time and growls in your ear, ‘Get up! Today is not the day you give up!’ You feel it in the core of your being where your heart and your soul intersect.
Regardless of gender, the masculine fire can be lit inside of you. It encompasses the greatest and strongest characteristics we have, masculine and feminine.
I’m going to discuss many things centered around emotion in this blog because I know handling and processing emotion is not something the masculine energy does well. As always, if there’s a topic you’d like to see discussed send me an email or leave a comment.
Thank you for taking the time to read this post. Until next time!
