Dear Conscious Man,
Thank you for loving that I am unapologetically strong, wild and fiercely free and for never trying to tame me. Trying to clip my wings would kill me faster than a thousand daggers ever could. Thank you for riding with me during all the storms that threaten our shores. Thank you for being a true partner and a best friend.
Thank you for never giving me excuses and lies when you know I’m smart enough to see through anything veiled falsely. I know being present with what’s going on isn’t always a picnic, but I thank you for valuing this place and being here with me.
Thank you for not hiding and for not closing the pathways that lead to deep conversation, deep love and deeper healing. Thank you for seeing the medicine that exists in the raw openness of this divine dance we co-create.
I know that sometimes things on this path dive us deep into contrast and are not for the faint of heart, bringing shadows to light and darkness to our eyes. Thank you for standing here through it. Thank you for working through the unconsciousness alongside me and expanding to places that we could once only have dreamed of.
Thank you for honoring me enough to be plain with me even when the words don’t fit right or it hurts to speak them. Thank you for not hiding until the storm has passed but instead dancing in the rains.
Thank you for showing me your heart even when you thought it was ugly and tainted and would have preferred to lock it up. Thank you for letting me see you in your light and into your shadow, both of which I find beautiful.
Thank you for not turning your head when my heart breaks or when I weep with a soft heart for the misdeeds done on Earth. Thank you for making me feel like more and never less. Thank you for understanding that I don’t have a price-tag and I can never be bought.
Thank you for being open when I was vulnerable and not shutting the door. In the act of being present and seeing me raw and bare before you, there is a sweet sacred union. Thank you for creating a safe space for it to be held without judgement.
Thank you for seeing me, all of me. Even the parts that I sometimes overlook and miss.
Thank you for the contrast you bring, the polarity and the expansion. Thank you for the challenges we find together that give birth to growth within us both. In our differences we are teachers to one another and in our similarities we are kindred spirits.
Thank you for celebrating divine sexuality with me and dancing in the ever-expanding flames. In divine reverence we worship at the altars of one another in an ever-deepening communion free of judgement or boundaries. Thank you for embracing not only the needs of my body for such nourishment but my heart, soul and mind as well.
Thank you for understanding my intuition and never berating it; for seeing that within me flows wild Earth magic and soul fire in equal measure and for cheering me on even when the path in front of me is unclear to my own eyes.
Thank you for being the solid ground under my feet when I need some extra stable footing and the wind of encouragement under my wings when I need a boost of flight.
Thank you for being present even when it’s not pretty or comfortable. Thank you for living beyond the pre-packaged, pre-conceived notions of what it is to be feminine or to be masculine.
Thank you for not running from my heart, from the deep well of feeling that dwells there. Thank you for embracing the love that was waiting on the other side with open arms. Thank you for knowing that in deep connection with one another we set the foundation possible to create worlds.
Thank you for understanding that I have a purpose and passion on this planet that at times may be hard to understand or define but that doesn’t make it any less true, valid or worthy. Thank you for never measuring your path to mine or making yours a higher calling. Thank you for seeing that we each have a journey in this life and we can each walk our truth and hold hands at the same time.
Thank you for your expression of the divine masculine, the unique and colorful way that you bring your one-of-a-kind male aspect into being. Thank you for being kind, considerate and gentle even as you are strong, fierce and passionate. Thank you for being of open heart and open mind.
Thank you for owning your shit, no matter how painful or uncomfortable it is. I’ve never asked you to get it perfect, but in your willingness to always try you show me your devotion to yourself. And in standing true with yourself, you stand strong beside me no matter how far apart we are.
Dear conscious man, wherever you are, thank you.
