Man, This Is Your Year


Man, This Is Your Year.

To heal, restore, and reclaim,
your sense of pride, your sense of self-worth, and your masculine name.

This is your year, to let go of the past,
honor and respect it, but stand tall — a new mast.

This is your year to be carried by grace,
out of the labyrinth, to a wide open space.

This is your year, man,
To speak your clear, tender voice,
To redefine what it is to be a man, and permit your own rejoice.

This is your year to choose to live,
to dream of kindness and truth; find purpose — forgive.

This is your year to show all how to lead,
to release, accept love, and to no longer bleed.

Dear Men, You Are Warriors — And You Are Already Worthy

Moon Wisdom "The stronger and more unified the force of human presence is the more universal power can get behind it. Miracles happen when we believe in people. You must hold sacred ground in times like these. The old arguments of rationalising it away, won’t work. You must remain realistic and ever more attentive. While you fight together for these causes — clean water and basic human rights (among others) — you must you must you must continue to defend the sacred from within you. The principles of the 13 grandmothers will help guide you: Gratitude, Integrity, Wisdom, Balance, Family, Peace, Compassion, Diversity, Unity, Tenderness, Wonder, Justice, Co-Operation, Expression, Vision, beauty, Creativity." —Andrea Maxine Frade #moonsandstars #newmoonnovember #howlforyourlife Read more:
