Where so much of our growth takes root

Does this feel like a source of untapped potential? An uncomfortable place that we typically avoid? Perhaps a new dimension of ourselves that could present us the opportunity for growth and change? 

Perfect. That’s our edge. And we should lean into it like a heavy caliber rifle. Because that’s where all the wisdom lies. 

Masters outlined the characteristics of this sacred place in his book on true masculine power. He refers to our edge as the existential threshold where we allow the armoring around our heart to melt. It’s the developmental crucible and initiatory testing ground that demands our full blooded participation. 

The secret is being honest with ourselves about what an edge is not. Because whatever thing we’re doing, if it’s easy, if it’s asking nothing much from us, then it’s not our edge. If it’s not a significant challenge, if it doesn’t require courage, and if it doesn’t bring up resistance, then it’s not our edge. 

Which doesn’t mean that thing won’t have meaning, it’s just that it won’t be valuable door to our growth. 

We never get rewarded for doing what’s easy for us. 

Make sufficient effort to do the inner work that would result in real growth. 


Where in your life are you rejecting growth?
