When I want to better understand how men think there are two men I go to for counsel—my husband, Brad, and my dear, online friend, Jay Schryer.
Both are "enlightened men", having done a good amount of inner work to earn the title of "wise guy" (in the very best sense of the word, LOL)
A while back I was wondering if "self-compassion" was a term to which most guys could relate. I decided to query Jay on this one. He agreed to let me share his e-mail response to me.
I like it, I really like it! It makes perfect sense to me. What do you all think?
Thank you, Jay, for sharing your insights with us!
Jay Schryer is a science-fiction and fantasy author who blends spiritual, mythological, and psychological concepts with magic and supernatural phenomena. The result is stories that are both unique and universal at the same time. He explores what it means to be human: what drives us, what motivates us, what scares us, and what inspires us.
At least, that's what he hopes people will say about him after he becomes a famous author. For now, he's just happy when he finishes a story, and it doesn't totally suck. To read his fiction, go to http://exterminis.com.
is a touchpoint. a resting place, a "remembering" of who we really are: beings of unshakeable peace, boundless compassion, and deep joy.
