– “If the tongue had not been framed for articulation, man would still be a beast in the forest.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

This CoT is focused on how as individuals, we need to embrace our primal and basic instincts. In other words, if we are struggling with any situation, a fork in a road, a job opportunity, or simply stand up for what is right, then listen to your gut and go with it. It’s a reason why there’s a saying for it.

We’re all animals or specifically beasts. Because we get after it, we grind. Sure, we can speak, have thoughts, opposable thumbs. But the basic needs to live are the same we share with animals… eat, drink, sleep, protect, love, sex, survive.

So it’s great to use our brains to make sure we are making rational decisions, but we also need to make sure we are listening to our bodies, our gut, what “feels right” because that’s nature talking to you.

We’re all connected and we share this invisible thing called energy and to some degree we all are experiencing trials and tribulations. Lucky for us, we are part of F3 and we have better access to our core, or inner spirits because we are choosing to come here, outside, with a PAX, working together… This is a very primal organization. We are all ready ahead of the game because there are individuals who are choosing to ignore their gut feeling, their instincts, and are not choosing to after it like we are. F3 is expanding, so let’s be beastly men and get after life. Let’s not regret our decisions, get after it!

Aye!
– Othello

MacNCheese led us in a closing prayer, thank you brother.
