WILD Men

._.¥].[¥._.
Soft.Male? Wild.Man? Savage?
_:¥
"The male in the past 20 years has become more thoughtful, more gentle. But by this process he has not become more free... He's a nice boy who pleases not only his mother, but also the young woman he is living with.."
¥:_
"The Wild Man's job is to teach the young man how abundant, various, and many-sided his manhood is..."
_:¥
What if the desperation cant be quiet anymore?
¥:_
Through old stories we can resurrect the ancient and deep power of the masculine ... Through myth and legend, men can find a middle path between the greater awareness of the "sensitive new age guy" and the power and vitality of the warrior...
_:¥
¥:_THE.STORY_:¥
This story has been around in one form or another for thousands of years... ¥:_In.A.Nutshell_:¥
A hunter answers a challenge from the king to go to a part of the forest from which men dont normally return. The hunter goes into the forest and his dog is taken by a hand that shoots out of a lake. Slowly draining the lake with a bucket, he finds at the bottom a hairy wild man, who is taken back to the town castle and imprisoned.
The king's son is playing with a golden ball when it accidentally rolls into the cage holding the wild man. At length, the prince does a deal in which he gets the ball back, but only after he has released the hairy man in the cage. This deal marks the beginning of the boy's manhood: He is willing to separate himself from his parents and retrieve his "golden ball" (that alive feeling of youth) through discovering his masculine energy...
¥:_Those.Who.May_:¥ laugh at this, are probably those who need it most...The most destructive types tend to be those with the least developed powers of self-examination, and woman should welcome any efforts to revive a forceful, but non-destructive, spirit of masculinity...

¥:_WHAT?_:¥
._.
Yes, a civilised man tries to incorporate his wildness into a larger self. When the prince in the story risks all and goes into the forest with the wild man, the parents simply think that their boy has been taken by the devil; in fact it is a profound initiation, an awakening. Mythology beckons us to enter fully into life, with all it's blood and tears; the way we achieve full realisation of ourselves is to focus on "one precious thing" (an idea, a person, a quest, a question) and the decision to follow it at any cost is the sign of maturity. When we make a clear choice, the king inside us awakens and our powers are finally released...

Teen gang warfare, wife beating, paedophilia, and feelings of shame... Could it be because of "WARRIOR.ENERGY" that has not been honoured or channelled? If used rightly, warrior energy can become a source of delight to everyone in it's refinement. How else can we explain the unconscious admiration for a glorious knight or a man in a starched white uniform and medals? This image represents the civilisation of warrior energy. We can apply the warrior spirit and the occasional fierceness in relationships. Psychoanalyst Carl Jung said American marriages were "the saddest around because the man reserved all his fighting for the office". At home he was a p*ssycat. Fierceness involves protecting what is rightfully yours, and women want to know what a man's boundaries are...

¥:_Getting Down_:¥
._.
A man may spend his twenties and thirties as a sort of "flying boy" ; in his imagination, nothing can hold him down. But for a man to be made whole, there has to be something that rips him open, a wound that allows his masculinity to enter. In many myths, a wild animal gets close enough to a young man to gore his leg; in our story, it is a knight who chases after the prince and stabs him in the leg. As he fells off his horse, the golden hair he has hidden from everyone underneath the helmet is revealed in all it's glory. Until then he has seemed almost two-dimensional. Appreciation of pain and sorrow... is as vital to a man's potentiality as is the ability to soar through the air...

¥For.The.Musculine¥ ._.The male initiation ceremonies of all cultures form a deepening, a forced discovery of your inner self. Women cant initiate men. In many cultures, a boy is taken from the women who have so far managed his life and made to live among older men for a while. But modern society has few structures for initiation, and boys can spend their teenage years prolonging their freedom, manifested in wild behaviour, rudeness to parents (particularly the mother), and clothing and music that attract attention. Men start to think more about their fathers as they get older, and mythology has much to say about the heaviness of "entering the father's house," leaving behind the expectation of lightness and comfort to face grim reality. Take Shakespeare's Hamlet, for instance, that is an elaborate metaphor for this process of moving from the mother's side to the father's. Millions of men have grown up with an environment of feminine energy- which is'nt a problem in itself, but boys also need the masculine...

¥:_Colours_:¥
._.
In our story the prince, disguised as a knight, rides a red then a white then a black horse. These colours have a logical symbolic progression in relation to a man's life: The "redness" of his emotions and unbridled sexuality in younger years; the "whiteness" of work and living according to law; and the "blackness" of maturity in which compassion and humanity have a chance to flower.
For example; In the later years of his presidency, Lincoln was a man in black. He had seen it all. No longer ruled by is emotions (red) or some external set of principles or law (white), he had ceased to blame and had developed a brilliant, philosophical sense of humour. You tend to know when a man has begun to move into the black because he is really trusted. There are no hidden corners, because he has fully incorporated his shadow...

There Is A Definite Distinction Between The Wild Man And The Savage Man... The Savage Type Wrecks And Abuses, His Inner Desperation Being Pushed Out On To The World As A Disregard Or Hatred Of Others. The Wild Man Has Been Prepared To Examine Where It Is He Hurts; Because He Is More Enlightened On Self Examination. The Wild Man Is Masculinity's Highest Expression, The Savage Man Is The Lowest... ~¥:_the.end._:¥~
