The qualities an enlightened, spiritual man are the foundation upon which a man builds his masculinity and a successful life. True principles endure throughout a man's life. While the world arounds him changes, a man core beliefs, principles, code of conduct, should not change. Real men have strong foundations and anchors.
Even though qualities and principles are very important, knowledge on this subject matter is limited. Some of the most important information for men is not readily available.
Learn new truths about yourself. It is exciting to do so. Invigorating. Walk from darkness into the light. Knowledge changes everything. It changes your entire perspective. Keep an open mind and heart while you learn. Find the truths and seem to make things clear to you. And make those truths part of your life.
Do not take my words too seriously. I'm not an expert; I'm not a doctor; I'm not a professional advisor. I'm just a man - like you. And I've studied and thought a little bit on this subject. A study into a man's core beliefs is serious business. Take a few moments. Think about it. Take a walk. Go to the beach. Do not take self-examination lightly. Your obligations as a man in this world seem onerous. Do not shrink from them. Learn them.
Most of what I write in The King's Guide will seem strange. Much will sound downright wrong. That's okay. This stuff may not be for you. Or, this information may sound just right. Either way, have fun. The benefits of learning about yourself are limitless and will certainly extend to those you love.
Spirit is a force that exists in the universe. It is energy. Where is it? It is everywhere. You're made up of it. You're essentially made up of elements and energy. And so is everything else.
If you think of yourself in this way for a moment (elements and energy), you'll realize that deep down inside, you're made up of pure energy. Vibrating energy. If we take a piece of your body, say your thumb, and break it down into molecules, we'll see atoms. Break atoms down further, and you'll see electrons. Then particles, and sub-atomic particles. And finally, if you try to take these quantum particles and smash them together to see what they're really made of, you'll find that there's no particle at the source. There's nothing but pure unbound energy, vibrating really fast. So, at our core, we are essentially boundless vibrating energy. I call it a spiritual energy, because it has purpose.
Cut open an apple, and look at it's seed. Take one seed and cut it open. What do you see inside? An apple tree? No. Take a chestnut. Cut it open. What do you see? A small tall chestnut tree? No. Plant a sunflower seed in the earth, and what will grow? An apple tree? No. These are simple questions that may make one consider how incredibly organized, apparently purposeful, and beautifully designed unseen energy can be. In nature, it's not difficult to predict an outcome, ie. apple seeds grow into apple trees, sunflower seeds grow into sunflowers, etc. And that's because deep down inside these physical manifestations of energy is spirit. Spirit, unbounded energy with an apparent intention or purpose.
We are connected to this field of energy that is omnipresent. Some believe our brains interact with this spiritual energy field. Maybe our brains are designed that way. The interaction is manifested as imagination, creativity, and intelligence. Our thoughts are the result of connecting with this spiritual energy that's all around us. Enlightened folk seem to be connected more to this than the rest of us. They are more in spirit, inspired.
Some have suggested that everything you can think, all information, everything actually exists in an invisible domain or unseen reality, and you can tap into this information when you need to. You can plug in and connect. You become in spirit or inspired.
Take a moment to reflect. When was the last time you felt inspired? Really inspired, motivated, to do something fun or creative. Was it brought forth by a thought, or maybe you felt connected momentarily with someone or something else? Now, imagine, if we're assuming that this energy is all around us, you could choose to be inspired. Imagine that at any moment of your choosing, getting really inspired. Feeling and being really connected to that which inspires you.
My desire for you is to not be disconnected. Don't be disconnected from that which is all around you. If you want to live like a king, you've got to plug in and connect.
