"In our first meeting Joseph helped me to see the true causes of my problems, the causes that dwelled within me - my relationship to myself. He soon initiated me into the path of self-love, which has drastically altered all the important relationships of my life in such a positive way that I could have never imagined."

- Robert Lee Camp

  Why Masculine "Field"?

Molecular biologist, Rupert Sheldrake has popularized the concept of morphic fields. He has also extended the usage of this concept beyond it's biological origins in such work as The Sense of Being Stared At, Dogs That Know When Their Owners Are Coming Home And Other Unexplained Powers of Animals: An Investigation and Natural Grace: Dialogues on Creation, Darkness, and the Soul in Spirituality and Science. In it's simplest form in Sheldrake's conceptualization, any activity anywhere in the universe, driving a car, running a 4 minute mile, creating a new crystal, or using a computer, once performed, creates a morphic field. Because of this field, once an activity is performed, it becomes easier for others to perform.

Consider the 4 minute mile. For decades this was the barrier that couldn't be broken; it was thought that to go beyond this was humanly impossible. But once broken by Roger Bannister, the British middle-distance runner who finally achieved the impossible in 1954, it became more and more frequently surpassed. Within a year of Bannister breaking this psychological barrier, 37 runners did it, and one year later another 300 runners had done it! Now marathon runners run this impossible rate, mile after mile!

Additionally, once an activity is performed and a field is created, the field is not limited by time or distance. So a 4 minute mile run in Britain creates a field that makes it easier in Africa or the United States.

As I explored the work of Sheldrake and Bert Hellinger, I started to realize that it can be productive to understand Masculinity and Femininity as morphic fields. The primary characteristic of Femininity is receptivity and of Masculinity, action.

For a man to be effective, he must be able access this field of action! He must be anchored in the masculinity field! And this anchoring in the masculine field creates a foundation for effective, powerful action.

There is only one door into the masculine field; only one key to that door! To explore the effects on a man if he is not soundly achored in the masculine field, if he hasn't walked through that one door, please continue your exploration of Mama's Boys.
