069: THE WARRIOR - A Review of King, Warrior, Magician, Lover (Part 3)
Part 3 of 6
Men are faced with unique challenges and many of our failures come from operating with “boy psychology” instead of the mature and evolved “man psychology”. We often find ourselves asking “what kind of men should we be?” There are many perspectives about healthy masculinity and even more widely varying ideas of what it means to “be an alpha.” Today my 3 ALPHA guests and I continue a 6-episode series on our review of the book “King, Warrior, Magician, Lover” by Robert Moore and Douglas Gillette, who describe the difference between boy psychology and man psychology and give a very effective model of healthy manhood by helping guys rediscover the archetypes of mature masculinity: in this episode we discuss the WARRIOR.
- What is the WARRIOR archetype, expressed in its fullness?
- What are some relatable examples of men living this way?
- What does it look like when a man is operating from SADIST energy? And relatable examples?
- What does the MASOCHIST act like? And relatable examples?
- How can a man fully access the WARRIOR energy within himself?
Many people are pretty uncomfortable and uneasy about the “warrior” form of masculine energy. Most of the time, that is because they have only encountered the negative side of that...the abusive shadow side of the warrior in us has victimized far too many people. If a man’s warrior energy is repressed, it just keeps flowing underground and unchecked it erupts into verbal and emotional and physical violence. The archetypes are patterned in us. There is no ignoring it because eventually it surfaces. The key is to understand which of these energies is present and mindfully choose the discipline of the warrior within.
