In the land of Niaiseen there lived a young man whose eyes had been set free through dreaming. With great freedom he walked about with closed eyes. And all that was to be seen was seen in his mind.
It so happened that the young man came upon a young woman who was revered as the most beautiful in all the land. The young man looked upon her with closed eyes, and upon seeing her essence he said, “Your spirit is beautiful to me.”
And she said to him, “You are the first man to look into the heart of me. And I thank you.”
And from that day forth the man and the woman were close friends, and then lovers, and then father and mother to 25 children who were all, in essence, beautiful.
A man who can befriend his wife long before they are married will know the essence of love.
A man who can make love to his wife long before their bodies meet will know the essence of intercourse.
A man who can secure the safety of his wife, without possessing her, will know the essence of protection.
A man who can selflessly provide sustenance for his family will know the essence of sacrifice.
A man who can do just these few things is well on his way to being remembered and revered for generations to come.

There are many men who seek to shade their insecurities with the shroud of bravado. I too have done such a foolish thing.
It is often the case that those who do not see their own strength feel a deep sense of inadequacy. In such cases they may seek to make up for their perceived inadequacy through bravado, through the exaggeration of their strengths. Understand that true manhood is a condition in which a man shares a balance within himself. He finds no need to exaggerate. He finds no need to make himself appear to be greater than he is.
During those circumstances in which it is wiser for him to be greater, he adapts according to need. But in being greater there is no need for him to exaggerate; for he is merely displaying to the world what he has always been. During those circumstances in which it is wiser for him to be lesser, there is no need for him to depreciate himself; for he is merely displaying to the world what is necessary to maintain modesty, humility, and propriety. In this way he maintains his balance and participates in creating an outcome that is to the benefit of all involved.

“Men do not worship other men. Men raise themselves so that they can raise other men.” -Lenon Honor
I am raising my sons in such a way that they will look to no other man as being above them. They will look to no other man as being the possessor of greater abilities than their own to actualize the reality that they so choose. If my sons see any other man as their savior, if my sons worship me to any capacity, then I would have failed in raising them into men.
Every man must make his own way and he must not see himself less than any other man. Instead he must see himself as a powerful force in the universe. He needs no hero. He needs no savior. He is his own hero and his own savior. And on that day he will be a man and the wombearers will look upon him and say, “Behold he is a man, let us CREATE WITH HIM!!!”
