We will now look at the ways you repress yourself. Assistant course leader Karl-Otto Sandvik has mapped out three reasons men fail to stand their ground:
- Fear (of speaking your truth)
- Guilt (from not owning your desires)
- Shame (from lack of power)
The men we talk with often juggle with these three different obstacles. When they get in touch with them, and feel the awkward sting of reality, they often just grow a thicker scab on their wounds and pretend everything is OK.
You mustn’t show weakness or vulnerability, you know? Yet when you go on a journey with us, you will be faced with all of your conditioned beliefs. And when you do, you may get confused, because you may find that your “reality” is but an empty, fabricated illusion.
You may discover that you have placed your Inner Throne outside yourself, and that you live in the illusion that if you blame others for your misery, everything will change for the better. It’s a humbling discovery. It is for us all. Including the founder and all the team members.
So the price of reclaiming your Inner Throne is not $2479. No, it’s not about money. The price you pay is your precious false identity. You have to let go of it. Then you can stand your ground. Then you can be yourself. As you are now in reality, not in the fake story about who you’d like to be. And we hope that matters to you.
Men numbing out and consistently fleeing from the truth of their lives is a huge cultural challenge. We’re not talking about a minority here. We’re talking about the vast majority – more than 90%. Honestly, we’re most likely talking about you. (we’ve been there too!)
And so our world is on the brink of collapse, because men (and women too) won’t allow themselves to be genuinely human. Allowing the full spectrum of the human experience to flow through you unfiltered is too vulnerable, and it takes too much courage.
But if you’re going to stand your ground in a wholesome way, you have to stop repressing yourself. You have to develop the courage to face off squarely with reality and begin to remember who you are!
