The Winter of Your Soul

498290

Three forces govern a man: his mind, his body, his soul. His body can be molded by iron, his mind can be sharpened by words from men long past, but his soul is dependent solely on his own willpower. His soul rules his character, it is the basis of his morality that he exercises in his life. The dependence of the soul on the man makes it the most vulnerable, requiring a vigilant and watchful eye against anything and anyone that would seek it harm. Once a soul has been corrupted, it takes the strength of a god to cleanse it and restore harmony.

For men who have just begun to find their own way, two obstacles lie in their path: anger and sadness. The anger comes from the lie you have been fed, from the realization of the amount of time you have spent on everything else expect your own goals. This anger, in its early stages, is formless and wild. It cannot be tamed and is as paralyzing and destructive as the chains that bound him. Once a man has tamed the beast that is his anger, he can harness its raw energy and direct it and shape it into something that can help create his visions and destroy his obstacles. This anger must be tempered within his soul because its natural state is that formless, wild beast that took the great effort to tame. Every man must find his own way of taming it, be it iron, creation, travel, or otherwise. A man must know to tame it, because the world depends on you not doing so. The wheels of civilization roll on the bones and blood of men who let their anger and frustrations lead them where they did not mean to go. Do not be lead by anger and hate, rather lead it where it can be useful. Unrestrained, it will poison a soul.

The far greater adversary to the soul is the sadness that comes after the anger. This despair at the state of the world and those you cannot save from suffering creates guilt and remorse. If anger poisons the soul, sadness kills it. You must tread carefully when confronting this deformed, ugly beast that distorts the beauty of the world into the most grotesque things it produces. Confronting this foe is the first step to conquering it, and so begins the winter of a man’s soul. As the daylight of youth and ignorance fades, he is left with the truths that have been laid bare before him, the path that led him to face sadness. The reality of these truths are cold and tearing down the false constructions he had will leave him defenseless against the onslaught of the frigid storm.

To survive the storm, do as nature instructed to animals: hibernate. He should surround himself with wholesome friends, if they are to be found, and entertainment. He can bury himself in pleasantries as the storm rages outside, and once it has calmed he can emerge and seek it out on a fair battlefield. Whatever form his beast takes, he must look at it objectively. He should remove his ego as best he can and face it squarely and bravely.

A man going his own way has many forms of sadness to conquer. Overcoming oneitis is a common form, as is accepting the vital truth of AWALT. After he has overcome his personal woes, he may begin to look to society at large and feel regret at the loss of opportunities or the disgrace brought to his ancestors, who fought and died only for women to tear it down in a few generations. He must separate his ego from himself and realize that there are more opportunities than ever for an independent man to achieve greatness and that his ancestors fought and died to grant him the right to appreciate their sacrifice in peace and solitude and to uphold their memory by being the best man he can be.

MGTOW Lives On In You

As the MGTOW community continues to grow at an accelerated rate, it is important to create contingency plans for the inevitable backlash from the forces in power within our gynocentric society. It is equally vital to plan for the eventual pollution of the community as its popularity increases. For those who care about the continuity of the knowledge we have shared with each other, we must be vigilant of those who would subvert our quest for peace of mind. I have obtained enough knowledge from the community to sustain me for whatever the future may hold, but the young men of tomorrow will need all the help they can get as the propaganda is taken to a new level as the gynocentrism slowly collapses under its own weight. Every man we save is another opportunity to change the course of human history, be it in a major or minor way, because it only takes one man to build the future of his own dreams.

The Red Pill has seen a sharp drop in quality because its philosophy cannot be simply deduced to a basic premise. I believe MGTOW can endure because its ideas and teachings can be traced to a simple idea: do not get married. By using this thought as an origin on the path to ultimate individualism, a man can come to many of the conclusions so many men in the MGTOW community have shared. If all of the MGTOW videos on YouTube were to be taken down and every forum post purged from the internet, the philosophy would still live on with that single idea of freedom. The MGTOW philosophy creates an endless pool of knowledge to dive in to from one idea that can be easily shared and displayed in the world to teach others.

Should the community be targeted or its name tarnished, MGTOW will endure because each and every one of you can uphold its teachings in your own lives. As men of all ages see you enjoying the many fruits of life as a bachelor, they may begin to question their own choices and experience bouts of introspection. Throughout history, libraries have been burned and centuries of knowledge lost at the hands of the ignorant, but the most important teachings lived on in the people who survived. You are that example, the knowledge you have gathered lives on in how you navigate the world and the situations you find yourself in. Our libraries are everlasting, relevant in any time period, in any society, gynocentric or otherwise.

MGTOW requires no conversion, no missionaries to spread our teachings, and yet it has reached men from every country in the world. It has no manifesto, does not explicitly push for any organized form of change, and yet accomplishes the greatest feat that systems of belief have been striving to foster for millenia: peace. As I look into the future, I see visions of chaos and fear, but I also see a new generation of monks, united from all cultures and countries by their desire for independence. I see men who have overcome their biological instincts, one of the greatest feats of strength a man can achieve. With their newfound freedom, these enlightened men of all races, colors and creeds can create a new Golden Age, a true renaissance.

Through this peace that MGTOW inherently creates, chaos must preface. By putting himself first, a free man won’t work to kill another man in a war that has no meaning to him. Because of this abandonment of traditional and corrupted masculine values, chaos will erupt amongst those who still abide by them. As the world goes into uncharted territory once again, it is best for the enlightened man to remain steadfast in his beliefs and endure. Your life is the incarnation of MGTOW. MGTOW doesn’t require an internet connection, a library, or a seminar, MGTOW requires a man living free.

 

 

 

Escape Your Prison

Every man, woman and child alive today or who have ever lived have at some point in their lives, oftentimes their entire lives, been subjected to an imprisonment of the mind, body or soul. Those who have escaped these prisons have found internal and external success in the form of fulfillment, fame, or fortune. Some who escaped did so with instinct alone, while others studied and learned from those who came before. By learning to harness both instinct and knowledge, any individual can attain any height of power they desire.

On Defining Prisons

The first step to escaping your prisons is defining them. There are three categories of prisons: self-imposed, cultural and societal. The most damaging and difficult to escape are self-imposed prisons. Examples of self-imposed prisons include bad habits, low self-esteem, low confidence, self-doubts, self-hatred, obsessions, addictions, fears, and ignorance. A self-imposed prison may include influence from the other types of prisons, cultural and societal, but it also includes your unique interpretations and the most powerful tool you have available: imagination. While a cultural or societal prison can show the negative affects for people trying to escape their prisons, your self-imposed prisons relies entirely on the imagined punishments you have conceived for yourself.

The second and most prevalent imprisonment are societal prisons. For better or worse, we all rely on the government to protect smaller communities within the larger community of the country you reside in. This protection brings laws and regulations, some we may not agree with but are forced to abide with the threat of violence and literal imprisonment. This natural imprisonment can be traced back to our species’ founding, with primitives being constricted to tribes for the sake of survival. This form of prison may be essential to survival, but it must be acknowledged as a confinement nonetheless. Defining all boundaries is essential when trying to overcome them.

The third type of prison are cultural prisons. These do not rely on physical imprisonment as societal prisons do, but rather social ostracization and ridicule to force conformity. Examples of cultural prisons include religion, marriage, careers, and political parties. All of these examples rely on criticism of those who are not part of that particular prison or who are critical of them. People who don’t follow a particular religion need to be saved, those who are not married will die alone, someone without a prestigious or lucrative career is unsuccessful, a person who is not of a particular political alignment is wrong, etc.

In summary, a self-imposed prison is one you place on yourself that utilizes your imagination against you to confine you, a societal prison relies on forceful physical imprisonment or violence to encourage you to conform, and a cultural prison relies on attacking a person’s image or reputation to shape you to its expectations.

On Planning Your Escape

Just as real escape artists can attest, the most important factor in escaping confinement is preparation. You must prepare for resistance and conflict when attempting to escape your prison. Plan for all scenarios and reflect on how much you are willing to sacrifice to escape. Without sacrifice, there can be no freedom because it is the catalyst for it. Use your time wisely as you plan and prepare your escape, because once you are aware of your prison it will eat at your consciousness and consume your thoughts.

On Fellow Inmates

Every person has their own form of imprisonment, but not every person wants to escape. For most people, their prisons have become a part of their personalities and identities. Without the restrictions, they would be unable to navigate the world that exists outside of it. To free them of their prisons would be to strip them of their persona, a cruel and unconstructive thing to do. Instead, provide advice and guidance for those actively aware of their cages and seeking to rid themselves of them. If a person cannot consciously recognize one of the prisons outlined here, they are not ready to escape it. Everyone must escape their own prisons, and doing it for them would take away from their journey as a person and dampen the freedom bestowed upon them.

Caution must be used when interacting with those protecting the prison you find yourself trying to escape. These people either benefit from the prison or are so deeply ingrained that they must defend it to survive. These traitorous inmates will slow you down on your path to freedom and try to deter you from your quest. They cannot be avoided and must be dealt with in a way that does not provoke them to a radical response, for there are far more inmates than free men and you will find yourself constantly outnumbered.

On Dreaming of Freedom

Once you have visualized your prisons, you can begin to visualize the freedom from those prisons. Envision this freedom everyday, dream of it, desire it with all your being. Imagine the benefits you will reap from the changes you can invoke in your life and realize the harm you will endure should you continue to be confined. Look to the people who escaped their prisons and study their success. Specifics can not be given by anyone but yourself, because only you know what prisons you currently reside in.

Do not pity yourself for being imprisoned for so long, knowingly or unknowingly. Do not pity others for being imprisoned or look down upon them for being content in their cells, because they are on a different path than you with its own challenges and tribulations. Taking action and making sacrifices is how you can repay the debt to your former self who resided in that prison.

On Failed Attempts

The punishment for a failed escape attempt pales in comparison to the regret and guilt of not trying. Relapses will occur in any self-imposed prison, be it the struggle against an addiction or the struggle of becoming more social or extroverted. By acknowledging that these things will likely happen, you can prepare yourself for the coming fight. Make no mistake, it is a fight and you will need to fight these self-imposed prisons with every fiber of your being.

A cultural prison, on the other hand, is a battle of defense. You must stay true to the path you have set for yourself, and defend that ideal from any and all who may attack it. Prepare to be attacked from all sides: friends, family, acquaintances, inspirations, successful, unsuccessful. No castle can withstand an eternal siege, and there will be times when your values and beliefs are shaken by the bombardment of conflicting ideologies. If you willingly open the gates to these invaders, make sure it is on your own accord and for the right reasons, not as a compromise.

A societal prison cannot be successfully escaped because it is inherent to human nature. A revolution may overturn a societal prison, but it is always replaced by the revolutionaries. Acknowledging that it is a prison, one of the body, is essential when seeking to expose and understand the more subtle prisons present in each of our lives.

On Enjoying Freedom

Once you have attained the freedom you desire, make a vow to never go back to the prison whence you came. You must always be aware of the chains that bound you and the burdens you lifted from yourself. Always keep an image of what your prison was like so that you can compare it to what your life is like with your newfound freedom. Take time to reflect on how you were imprisoned in the first place so that you are aware of future prisons that will try to restrict you.

Finally, take time to celebrate and rejoice in your success. If you have escaped a prison, no matter how small or insignificant you may deem it, you have done something most people are not capable of and have put yourself on the pedestal of great men and women of yore.
