    A real man does not beat on women. When a real man gets upset he tries to talk with his woman, he goes for a walk, or maybe he just chills out. These things control anger. Controlling anger is a sign of MANHOOD.

    rather than controlling anger you could not become angry in the first place......


    Law of Ausar
    Your nature is an unconquerable peace, therefore nothing or no one in the world can be against you.
    All experiences come to you to promote your reclamation of peace, that you may in turn, aquire wisdom and power.​

    The definition of manhood which I am using is reference to ancient teachings not the contemporary Webster text. In this sense manhood is defined to control all lower emotions with the higher intellect.

    What you are referring to is a higher plane of consciousness. There are steps which need to be taken before you reach that state.

    A real man is any human being who upholds and keeps their social responsibilities whilst fulfills their physical and spiritual potentials to the max.

    According to the Bible, John the Baptist was the greatest man born of a woman. (Matthew 11:11)

    The more like John the Baptist you are...the more of a man you are and the less you are like John the Baptist...the less of a man.

    "If a fool be associated with a wise man, even all his life, he will perceive the truth as little as a spoon perceives the taste of food; if an intelligent man spend one minute only with a wise man, he will soon perceive the truth as the tongue perceives the taste of soup." ---- The Dhammapada
