YELLING AT GOD LIKE LT. DAN
ATHEISTS, FAITHEISTS, AND REVERENCE IN MASCULINITY
Mike recounts some special moments where he and his dirt-biking brothers brought some love and service to an orphanage on the most recent of his ‘Taco Tours’ in Baja, Mexico.
After last weeks episodes on porn, we decide to turn our discussion to reverence: the respect and awe of all valuable things. We discuss the need for a having a framework for understanding the bigger-picture of life which helps men understand themselves, other people, hardships, and the universe as a whole.
Whether you are an atheist or a faitheist, this episode will inspire you to tap into universal power and beauty, which ironically includes the need for you to ‘lay down in the dirt’ and be like David, King of Israel, who said he is “a worm, and no man.”
Talking points include Lieutenant Dan from Forrest Gump, narcissism as the enemy of spiritual growth, when you should just keep on sinning, and the need for a higher power and how to connect to it, with and without traditional religious practices.
This is part one of a two-part episode which covers Reverence, from The Red 9, the principle characteristics of masculinity as seen by the Alpha Quorum.
