Masculinity has a core of clarity, which does not act
from anger or greed or
sensuality, and a husk, which does.
The virile center
that listens within takes
pleasure in obeying that truth.
Nobility of spirit,
the true spontaneous energy
of your life, comes as you abandon other motives and move
only when you feel the majesty
that commands and is the delight of the self.
Jelaluddin Rumi – The Husk and Core of Masculinity (1207-1273)
