Manhood and the Need to Believe

Greetings Barbarians! Long days and pleasant nights!

Religion and politics: two topics that I’m avoiding like the plague. Because let’s be honest, these two caused more divide than solidarity. With the way things are going right now, it’s easy to cancel each other out than to seek common ground. I don’t know about you but I’m not about that, I’m all about co-existence, goodwill, and acceptance. Yet, I am willing to talk about spirituality and a man’s need to believe in something. 

As you all know, a part of my Patreon rewards is taking on requests made by patrons. I hesitated at first when a patron asked me to write about spirituality. Spirituality is tied to religion in a more traditional sense and that’s what makes me second guess myself. But fret not, I am a professional and I will rise to the occasion. 

I’m born and raised a Catholic, went to a Catholic school, studied the sacraments, the whole shebang. So you’d be surprised to know that I don’t practice the religion. With all that conditioning you’d be expecting that I will be a devout Catholic, but I didn’t. While many tied their spirituality to a creed, I tied my spirituality to something else. 

Before we get down to it, please like and subscribe to this blog, follow us on social media. It would mean so much to me. Another thing, my Patreon campaign that started in June was a hit, and it’s starting to get some momentum. I know it’s off-putting, asking you over and over again but I wish you could join me in Patreon. I’m offering a bunch of monthly perks for those who sign up. Get access to my Patreon feed and exclusive content you won’t see anywhere else. Take part in Q&As and polls, get to decide what kind of content you would like to see. Make requests and get your name included in the credit section of my posts. Not to mention, I plan on doing a special collaboration with a special Patron when I reached my first 10 patrons. 

Please check out my Patreon page for more info.

I’d like to thank my Patrons for all your generosity; you are my inspiration in becoming a better man. You mean so much to me more than you know, thank you!

Regardless of what a man believes in, there is no denying his need to believe in something or someone. What would a man be if he doesn’t treat something with certain sacredness? I may not believe in religion, but I found my spirituality in something else. Nothing could humble you than time and nothing could ever teach you like life. My spirituality may not be tied to a particular book or deity but I do believe in something. If you hold that against me, I’m alright with that, after all, I’m not in the business of changing people’s minds. But enough of that, I’m here to talk about a man’s need to believe in something not about what I believe in.

Since ancient civilization, men are always eager to believe in something. Because without any sort of belief, he wouldn’t have any form of morality. Believe me, even those who do not practice religion like me can be spiritual and has a moral standard. I believe in man’s affinity for destruction as well as his ability to do good, thus I hold human life above all else. No one is below or above anyone else; people can be different but will always and forever be equal. 

Unless he wanted life to be a joke to him, a man needs to believe in something. His whole existence would be profane when he holds nothing as sacred. He will go on through life with nothing. He expects nothing and treats everything like nothing, thus cannot be trusted. How can you trust someone who values nothing?

The good thing is, I haven’t met anyone who doesn’t believe in anything. There is always something to believe in, there is no shortage of it. The important thing is a man believes in something.

How about you, in what or whom do you believe in?

To Courage, Freedom, and Spirituality!

  2. Well, spirituality and religion are, more often than not, polar opposites. The way I see it is that spirituality is something that should bring about a huge shift in consciousness while most religious people stay in low consciousness

    1. Thats right! Thou in a more traditional sense, most people associate it as such. Thou for me, I consider myself a spiritual man despite not being tied to religion.

      I love your definition of spirituality and religion! Cheers! 🍸

  3. I also avoid religion in my blog because I am now secular for more than 40 years (left Catholic church at the age of 18). We need to concentrate on common and mutual values, otherwise it is a mess. Cheers from Berlin 🙂
