To Find Love… (S)he Loves Me, (S)he Loves Me Not?

A Father’s Guide to Wisdom

Einstein once wrote these great words of wisdom about a fundamental question we all must examine within ourselves.

The most important decision we make is whether we believe we live in a friendly or hostile universe.

Albert Einstein

On my way to work this morning, I was taken aback by a segment In heard on a local radio network, where the DJ’s were speaking about the absence of Dad’s in America. While I agree with this premise wholeheartedly, a young woman spoke to a hidden known reality about psychology that took me aback, and lead to the above segment of wisdom.

I have taken some time off with this. Mostly because of an internal shyness I have around camera’s. But today, I felt called, and really enjoyed getting back into the office and filming this one. It felts as if I was drawn to begin filming again, based upon a radio piece this radio peace that really moved me.

Let me explain the crux that I heard present in the radio show. A young woman stated that because she lacked the presence of a father figure in her life (a Dad), she lacked the capacity to find trusting relationships with men that would care for her feelings. This struck me at a deep level causing me to explore the tenets of this construct in depth. She blamed the absence of her father as being the reason why she lacks capacity to choose appropriate men. While this represents one side of the equation from a psychological perspective, it abdicates personal responsibility over one’s life. This is a dangerous phenomenon I see employed at all levels of personal and social being during this age. It would be like a person coming to me for treatment, and then me prescribing a method to treat the father not the person sitting in my chair. It simply will not work.

In this segment, I explore the depths of creating abundance in one’s life, to welcome in the gift of love. You cannon attain that which you do not have. And if you are filled to the brim with blame, guilt, anger, hatred, jealousy, or other underlying emotions that prompt hostile feelings, you are not operating on a frequency of love. These hostile emotions negate the capacity any of us have to have space or even welcome the more friendly emotions into our lives. In order to give you, you must first have an abundance of something to give.

I hope you enjoy my journey into the depths present in masculine wisdom and the collective need for fatherhood experiences.

With many prayers and blessings… Believe… Achieve… Advance Confidently in the Direction of Your Dreams.
