Raise your SMV by slaying dragons: The Legend of St. George and the Dragon [Hero's journey]

Western society is collapsing. The dragons of chaos are stirring again in the form of mass invasions by dangerous hostiles, the widespread promotion of false narratives, and moral decay. The root cause of our troubles is the weakness of men who seek comfort and security at all costs. Dishonorable men who would trade the future for a day's peace. 

This isn't the first time that our civilization has been menaced by total collapse, nor will it be the last. By acting honorably and by facing the danger threatening our society we can slay dragons.

The Female Hero Archetype: Raise your SMV by acting out your Hero Archetype [Hero's journey]

Men and women are fundamentally and biologically different. That's no surprise, they have very different roles and purposes to fulfill in the continuation of our species. Listening to stories and emulating heroes that display positive, natural gender roles can help us to be better men and women. In this post we will discuss the Female Hero Archetype, how it has been distorted and how we can select positive female role models.

We do it because it's worth it. A good life is its own reward.

(Tests, Allies, Enemies, Approach, Ordeal, Death and Rebirth.)

Western culture is largely based on the Hero mythos. The individual who overcomes chaos, tames nature and brings order to his or her universe. Western hero stories are often focused on personal honour gained by taking the right path.

The Hero's Journey is never easy. Its is not about comfort, relaxation or maximizing our pleasure. Rather, it's about sacrifice, stoically and voluntarily suffering discomfort and bravely facing the unknown (chaos).

Though the individual Hero is the main focus of western mythos, he always lives within a societal framework that influences his thoughts and actions. The Hero is both a responsible member of his society and a rule breaker when necessary. He is both a man and a beast. 

Raise Your SMV by Learning How to Negotiate Commitment in a Romantic Relationship [Activities]

Google “fear of commitment” and you will get more than 32 millions hits, many of them with titles like the ones above. Are so many people really that afraid of commitment?

Most people are not truly afraid of commitment, rather they are commitment illiterate. They don't understand what commitment means and how to negotiate mutually beneficial arrangements. The result is a fear and distrust of the unknown, rather than a fear of the commitment itself. 

Be a Hero, Raise Your SMV: Act 1 [Hero's Journey]

Last week we discussed how dating that leads to marriage can be likened to a Hero's Journey. This post will continue that theme by discussing how to start your journey towards romantic fulfillment by taking on the Relationship Quest.

The stories that we tell ourselves and others are powerful. They change our thought patterns, our behaviour and the outcome of our life. When we think of our lives as a grand epic, a story of heroism and the triumph of virtue over evil we will then conform to that expectation.

What is Dating and Courtship?

We have lots of sentimental, subjective ideas about romantic relationships. That's to be expected since the very act of falling in love tends to shut off our objective reasoning in a sea of happy, horney hormones.

Coordinating the seeming randomness of falling in love is a series of powerful social technologies that we call the Sexual Marketplace. Describing them that way might sound cold even mechanistic, however by thinking of dating and courtship as technologies can have a very positive impact on our romantic lives.

Here is a great explanation of something that has confused many people. What really makes an “alpha” or a “beta?” Noah J Revoy shows how these terms can only be understood fully when combining them with the r/K selection strategy concept.

MGTOW is an r-selected Beta survival strategy [Video]

Men who are r-selected encounter exclusively horrible r-selected women. These toxic women will destroy anyone they get into a romantic relationship with. Not dating such women is a smart move. Unlike K-selected men, who have access to K-selected women, the r-seleced man has no other romantic options.

Beta r-selected men wanting to avoid the pain and suffering of dating r-selected women are going their own way, giving up on dating, marriage and children. This might be a valid survival strategy for these men.

How to become a more K-selected man

Would you like to marry a quality K-selected women who will love you loyally for the rest of your life? Would you like to raise strong, well adjusted K-selected children? Would you like to be surrounded by a tribe of friends and family that you can trust? Are you concerned about the decay of western civilization into an r-selected, chaotic mess?

If you want a happy, healthy, marriage don't date an r-selected man.

The original concept of applying r/K selection theory to human behavior was expressed by Anonymous Conservative. Stefan Molyneux produced a series of easily digestible videos covering the subject. Stefan Molyneux - "Gene Wars | r/K Selection Theory" Series

Dying alone is no fun.

Dying alone is no fun.

In fact, it’s one of the worst ways to end a miserable life.

Dying with amazing children around you who have endless love and appreciation for you, and a wife/husband that you deeply respect and admire...well dying isn’t that great either way. 

But it beats the alternative.
