I thought I was doing everything right. I was certainly following all of the rules. I was living in the box, a good sheep in the system, having no idea that the higher I rose in those ranks, the farther and farther I was walking from my true self.
I fell for the trap and thought I had to choose from the paths in life that were presented to me. I didn’t realize I had skipped over doing all of the real work that would lead to the life I was supposed to live.
I never figured out who I was because I was always too scared to be anyone other than what the world asked that I be.
I never understood how to connect with the right work because I listened to the brainwashing I received about what was possible, reasonable, appropriate and expected.
I wasn’t able to discover my purpose because I spent all of my time looking for it. I had no idea where the answer was hiding. I didn’t have the tools required to bring it forth from the depths within me.
I never grew up on the inside because I didn’t realize that being a man meant developing the power to be the stillness in the midst of storm. I wasn’t aware that a man must develop the ability to gift to himself everything he is trained to seek from others.
I had no understanding that the children I helped bring forth into the world were to serve as my teachers for some of the biggest lessons of my life. I didn’t realize, at first, that they had chosen to serve as a refiner’s fire for me to grow closer to my truest and purest expression of myself.
And then one day, everything changed. My world cracked. And from that destruction began the creation of something new. It was the beginning of the journey towards becoming what I now refer to as a Sovereign Dad.
This is the road I now walk, and it’s the road I’m honored to help others walk as well.
