Heroic Man Defined
Written by Kesh Brown
Heroic Man knows this first and foremost…
He is a participant in Life, not Lord & Master over it.
He recognizes and honors the contributions of all life.
He is awake, aware and present.
He doesn’t buy in to the macho bullshit of dominance and control.He is not fooled by the greedy fools who pretend to run the world, trying to control and enslave him in the process.
He is his own man. He thinks for himself, speaks his mind, acts from a space of honor, respects others, and works to find common ground.
But make no mistake, he is not some pushover who caves to pressure from wrong-headed fools in the name of getting along, or being politically correct.
If you push him, he pushes back.
He is intrigued by his own heroic nature.
He is not threatened by Dangerous Woman. On the contrary, he is beyond proud to walk side by side with such a powerful ally. She helps make him a better man, and he knows it, just as he knows that he helps make her a better woman. He supports her dangerous nature, as she supports his heroic nature.
He recognizes that many of his fellow men are still asleep and deeply disconnected from the truth of Life.
Heroic Man will not be caged or fenced in. Heroic Man is a Free Man.
He knows full well that those who are still asleep see the Earth and all other life upon it as somehow separate from themselves. They look at everything that exists as merely resources, having no intrinsic worth of their own beyond their usefulness to humans.
He clearly understands that the current trajectory of civilization, especially in capitalistic societies, is simply not sustainable. He sees that civilization must change how it lives, and more importantly, how it consumes and abuses the rest of life on our planet, or it will surely bring about the destruction of not only humankind, but many other life forms as well.
Heroic Man hears the cries of the Earth. He knows that Gaia is pissed. The out-of-control entitlement of the human species has led Her to the conclusion that we are ignorant, petulant, spoiled children who have no respect for the sacredness of our world and seem determined to destroy all life in our never-ending quest for comfort and the fulfillment of our own selfish desires.
Heroic Man says enough is enough. He is all but screaming for others to awaken from the sad state of ignorance that has brought our world to the brink of total collapse.
He is ready to break any and all rules in order to defend the earth, and all Life, from the foolishness of man.
Wake up, he shouts.
