“She sets me free, free to be me,
she’s encouraging,
she’s supporting,
she’s always what I need.
She’s the one reminder,
that I can do anything.
And I know she feels the same from me.

In her eyes, I see the love for me,
In her voice, I hear her soul call to me,
In her touch, I feel our meant to be.
Never felt this much belonging.

She’s got me out on the floor,
And I’m dancing.
We move in a rhythm,
And it’s uplifting.
It’s such a rush,
Like spinning around,
Not getting dizzy.

She sets me free, free to be me,
she’s encouraging,
she’s supporting,
she’s always what I need.
She’s the one reminder,
that I can do anything.
And I know she feels the same from me.

In her eyes, I see the love for me,
In her voice, I hear her soul call to me,
In her touch, I feel our meant to be.
Never felt this much belonging.

She’s the one,
She’s the only possibility.
Loving what I see,
When she looks at me.
We are meant to be.
She’s my every want,
My every need,
My every desire.
I am just a man on……..fire.

“Being in the military to put into perspective with what leadership is, or as defined by my personal experience, you learn to lead without title or position, and other’s follow your example. Not everyone who had the title or position deserved it, nor could they lead effectively because of what it is to be an actual leader. A leader leads by affluence and acceptance. Even when their leadership isn’t clear, and they have to seem to be the bad guy, most know that there has to be a reason for the tough tasks or seemingly impossible demands. And they follow, out of respect, not because of the title or position, but simply because of who they are known to be. I appreciate everyone that ever followed my direction, those of whom I had the privilege to lead, they followed, and hopefully they took a piece of me and added it to themselves. That’s what it is to lead, the example of who to be.” – Ryan L. Rinehart

“It seems, as it is, obvious, but look again and you will find the opposite in competition vs. motivation.

Some people think to thrive, one needs uplifting support, the motivation to always be positive, an undying level of support and encouragement.

Really? Do we need that to succeed, do we need or even require that coddeling?

In my humblest outspoken opinion, I believe that competition breeds innovation, and that’s the truest form of motivation.

To be in competition with no one is not competing, to motivate someone without the use of competition will only lead to mediocre results more often than not.

All the greatest victories or results came from competitions, the race to achieve greatness, or excell against someone or something else.

So if you are of the mind that thinks competition breeds losers more often than winners, you are absolutely right, why would want to have the worst, when you can have the best?

Life is a competition, yes, you may not win in all the area’s of life, but the strive to do so, is the motivation. Not the coddled support of a fictitous web that in reality, are just all lies. Go for what’s real, what’s tangible, get in the game of life, go for the win.”

“Words can be used as weapons, or used to make one grow. Words can give life meaning and express what it is you wish to show. Some say words are worthless and actions speak louder, but to me, words are always perfect, and the lies they hide behind are the actions shown. For actions is words put into motion, we think in words, then do whatever deeds we please. So it is not words that are worthless, it’s the people misusing and abusing them to a selfish means. Words were made to communicate emotions not easily conveyed or portrayed. They are the captured essence to ignite our lives.”

“To ensure that you can be happy with life, one must embrace all of the total sum of it. The good, the bad, the happy, the sad, but most of all the love. Sometimes people just won’t embrace the love because they themselves feel or think themselves unworthy. That’s not a heart issue that’s a self image and mind issue. For love goes beyond fears and insecurities, it makes the daring dare, and doesn’t know how to quit. Loving some one can indeed be crazy if they are unsure of deserving such love and devotion. Give it time, for it can climb any mountain and cross any ocean, or when simply needed, it can stay put.”
“Clarity of Hart” by Ryan L. Rinehart

“Some people are not able to manifest their desires in such a way that they actual articulate and achieve them. I too, was once this way, believing that I had poured everything and did anything to have what I wished for. Like most, my efforts were lost in translation, a dialect deranged from all understanding. Until by chance, alignment came, and the cosmos spoke of purpose, like meteorites from the skies hitting the earth, my world rattled, and there she was. An angel born of trials and tribulations of her own bearing, a survivor, and her entire being beckoned my own. We manifested each other’s desires perfectly, even surpassing them to extreme fulfilment all the while in wonderment. Love was something I thought I had experience with, and now I am overjoyed, knowing all that came before, was just a shell, not close to what this is. Now my articulation is achieving my desires portrayed in touch, in thoughts, in deeds, in kiss, and in love.” – Ryan L. Rinehart

So as a humanist, you can’t just be on the sidelines and bitch about everything that’s wrong in the world and wish there was no war, your not a true humanist if you think that way. You’re a delusional loon if you think that way. A true humanist picks the side that is best suited for humanity, who seems to have the outlook and desire for humans to exell and prosper in a community of equality and exceptance and in a place for growth and change. So I ask you, if religion is such a place? Some are evolving, is Islam? I as humanist have looked at Islam and find no quality of life for equality for most people who live in America, who we’ve fought hard for equal rights. Sharia Law isn’t something that is for America. So as a humanist, you can’t defend Islam, you can’t stand on the sidelines and wish war wasn’t a thing, because it is a thing. As a humanist, you must know humanity and except that war is apart of being human and that there are things worth fighting for. Like the rights to be a free human being, free from terror, free from oppression, and possibly one day if ever possible, free from war. But it’s very doubtful. But we can wish. – Ryan L. Rinehart

“There seems to be a problem with the understanding of what entails all that being a man is today. With the skewed notion that some how all men, or the majority of men are chauvinistic pig’s. Even more so that being masculine in today’s world means being all the mentioned above. However, the true definition of being masculine is having qualities or appearance traditionally associated with men, especially strength and aggressiveness. While this seems to some as overbearing and dominate, it is actually being a stand up guy. Being responsible, having manners, being a protector, understanding the role of what being a gentleman is, and to top it a off, having the audacity to uphold a belief system based on such ideology. This doesn’t take away from women, it adds to them, as the male and female can empower and strengthen one another. We will never solve the problem with bad behavior on both sides of the sexes, however as roles get blurred, as lines get erased, as a section of society pushes for a gender neutrality, true identies are getting lost. We will always have human issues, we will always have different views, trying to conform to a state of sameness will just lead to more arduous behavior. This isn’t about who you love, or who you desire, or by sexual preference. It is about the role and identity of a decent human being that is a male. The distinction between what is masculine and feminine is a truth we all see, yet the masculine role is being viewed as inherently evil. Which is such a false and misleading and destructive connotation.
Since masculinity is a set of attributes, behaviors, and roles associated with boys and men, we need this murdering ideal of neutrality stopped and replaced by an empowering message. One that speaks volumes of what it actually takes to be a man. The traditional avenues for men to gain honor were providing for their families and exercising leadership, which still is a core necessity for any human to have, yet regardless of age or nationality, men more frequently rank good health, a harmonious family life and a good relationship with their spouse or partner as important to their quality of life. Not these bad examples we all are hearing as of late, the Hollywood corruption, along with the politicians scandals, these are all the opposite of being an actual man. So empower your son’s, brother’s, father’s, and friends, to be the example of what it is to be a man. There shouldn’t be any thing but a good man as an example for the rest of us men to look up to. And we shouldn’t be made to feel ashamed of our male identity, or to argue or fight over the fact that some people view being male as with everything it seems today as the problem in our society. It’s the opposite, we need the true identity of what it is to be a man to re-merge. The protector, the gentleman, the example and empowerment of what a good human being is supposed to emulate.” – Ryan L. Rinehart

“I want you to feel my presence without knowing I am there, you’ll just know somehow your heart will twinge or you’ll quiver and know I am close by. And I want the same feeling from you. Love’s powerful that way and has abilities like no other attribute in the world, it’s a wonder all on its own. You call it a fairytale, I call it love as it should be without limitation.”
“Affairs of Hart” by Ryan L. Rinehart

“From letting you go, I feel like I have given up on a dream, something that I sought for, fought for, only to lose everything. All it took was nothing short of infinity in pain. Searching within I know that I will find myself again. I have stood in times of devastation, knocked down just to get back up again. Resilience must be in my blood. For every dream there is a nightmare, for every hurt there is a care” “Reflections of Hart” by Ryan L. Rinehart
