I would like to suggest a way to look at your life that will help you understand why you are here and what your purpose is.

My name is Steve Nash. I am a British mixed race 48 year old Yorkshire-man. I’ve been striving to find meaning to my life, to ‘the world’, ever since I can remember.
I have been changing my life recently. I have been going through a process of identifying what serves me in life and what doesn’t. I will be writing more on the details of this transformation in a future post, but now I want to outline a simple set of principles that I have adopted to frame how I live.
A Spiritual Warrior embraces noble personal attributes and strengths, he is someone who masters himself, overcomes personal desire, moral issues, and all weaknesses of character. He is someone who embraces a journey of self discovery so he can inspire others as well as enlighten himself.
In it I said, “How often do you hear men say, “My wife doesn’t understand me.” What they really mean is, “I don’t understand my wife.”
“We must learn to reawaken and keep ourselves awake, not by mechanical aid, but by an infinite expectation of the dawn.” —Henry David Thoreau
How do you relate to the environment you live in? What appreciation of the flow of nature do you have? Reawaken to the dawn? Does this mean anything to you?
Modern society has shifted the natural rhythms of the body to fit with it’s perceived needs. We use artificial light to lengthen our days and allow us to live as we want, not as nature intended. We no longer allow the flow of natural light to trigger our physical responses and take us through life.
This has been key to my life over the past 40 years. I was a lighting designer and created amazing environments for people to work and play in, for people to enjoy. The work I did enabled people to do what they wanted in a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere.
I am not recanting the work I did or even saying that it has a negative effect. I am saying that it has increasingly allowed people to become separated from the world they live in.
There is a natural flow to life that is about more than light and dark, about more than the obvious. There is a flow that is seen in the subtlety of nature, of the universe. It comes out when we reawaken to the dawn.
The play of energy that we live amongst is not noticed by most people and yet it powerfully affects their lives. The polarity between male and female energy affects not just relationships but also the balance of power in our cultures. Whilst many people see a battle between the sexes, I see a constantly shifting flow of energy.
The influence of spiritual energy in our lives goes far beyond concepts of religion. Our expectations in life, the way we manifest the life we lead is closely intertwined with the spiritual energy that flows through and around us.
When you insulate yourself from nature’s natural rhythms you also insulate yourself from the energy of the universe. When you close yourself off into an unnatural world you close yourself off from the opportunities presented by the universe and the spiritual energy that flows through it.
When you allow yourself to sense the subtle shifts of natural light you slowly re-connect with nature. As you allow this connection to grow within you, you become increasingly aware of the amazing potential in the world.
This process needs time to grow, but as you trust it it becomes extremely powerful in your life. It is a re-awakening of our spirits and our soul that will transform us and transform society. This re-awakening, however, has to come from within, from a sincere desire to re-connect with your core, with the source of your life.
As you feel the subtlety of the approach of the dawn, as you become able to sense the imperceptible shifts in natural light, only then can you truly become aware of the energy of the universe. Only then can you reawaken to the dawn. As this energy becomes real to you, you become more conscious of your role in life.
Then you are able to expect amazing things for yourself and society.
Do you know what love is? You form a relationship and get married to affirm your place in the world. You learn, you think, how to treat a woman, how to be with her and you call that love. But ultimately it doesn’t seem to work. You wonder where love went and wonder how to love a woman.
Through this I have come to understand the totality of what light means to us all, both as a physical entity and as a spiritual concept. Light is the most basic thing in our lives.
These men float around seeking change and not knowing how to get it. They want to be released from the pressure of the society, the culture they live in. They want to be a man without feeling guilty about it… So why am I so angry, what’s the matter with me. I’ve just been to a great weekend in Boulder, CO, spending two days talking to men about men.
This morning she said to me, “I feel angry, sad, lost and alone. I can feel you, but I can’t feel you.” What did that mean? How do I deal with that? What do I do? I can guess what it’s about but it seems an extraordinary over reaction, or is it? How can I understand women?
