The splits and divisions we see in the world outside, is a reflection of man's split on this inside.
If we are ever to unify the world, we must first seek to unify the man first.
Men are conflicted.
Much of the conflict is confusion about Who we are, and Why we're here.
Timeless questions like this, always arrive in a timely way. What I mean is, there are predictable transition phases in a man's life.
I refer to these transition phases, as "Life Path Initiation" phases, since it's a normal part of life. It is during theses times in a man's life that he is leaving behind his old ways, and is initiated into a new version of himself.
But during the transition most men will feel fragmented. These dark times can leave a man confused. He begins questioning himself, and his existence.
Life Path Initiation phases occur every 12 years or so.
At age 12 a boy is becoming a young man, as puberty is happening.
In my personal experience, and in my work with men, age 24 initiates a new chapter in a man's life. It's often referred to as a quarter-life crisis.
In the years surrounding his 24th birthday a young man will confront his childish hopes, fears and dream; in order to adopt a newer, and hopefully, wiser way of being.
He is being initiated.
Having passing my 36 year-old birthday, I can tell you...
Life gets very confusing, chaotic and lonely during these Life Path Initiation phases of the journey.
