before making judgments, to value the truth over personal agendas
or the immediate benefits which falsehoods may offer. No wonder some of you can’t be considered “real men”.
to act with keen moral judgment, to maintain high standards of conduct. A man is a strong as his word, so if his word is weak, so is he.JUSTICE--to defend the helpless, to challenge evil wherever you encounter it, and to come to the aid of those who are so doing. A lot of people won’t do this unless it comes with a reward for themselves.VALOR--to have not the lack of fear but the ability to set aside self-interest when faced with evil, to be willing to fight for what is right, regardless of what other people may say or do to you. Ha! as selfish as some of you are now?! If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything.PROWESS–to have the discipline to train body, mind and spirit
for the work of a knight and to eschew (to avoid habitually especially on moral or practical grounds) the self-destructive behaviors
which tear down physical and spiritual health. Key word here; Discipline!LOYALTY–to choose for yourself the Worthy One or Ones,
whether they be your God, your loved ones, your country, your leader
or your cause and to dedicate yourself to the protection and fulfilment of those Ones. There is a thin line between Loyalty and Stupidity when it comes to whom you dedicate yourself to, I don’t think you really know what loyalty is.
LARGESSE--to give freely of what you have without impoverishing yourself, to show generosity to friend and stranger alike, to be merciful and fair in all your dealings.
COURTESY–to be polite and mannerly in dress, speech and carriage, to treat all people as equals, to be kind to animals, and in war or competition to follow the rules, lose with grace and win with humbleness. This is where you put other people first and stop being so selfish.
NOBLESSE–to be diligent in study, enhance your knowledge of the world, practice your skills, use your natural gifts to generate goodness, thereby enriching your life and the lives of those around you. But if it ain’t making you money, or look good you don’t care huh?
HUMILITY–to have all the above qualities without ever proclaiming them, to bear the heavy burden of Chivalry without so much as a breath of exertion, to be a silent strength
which supports and sustains us all. Being humble, men who are upstanding and gentlemen without needing recognition, if you’re putting on a show just for recognition you failed before you even left the house, real men wake up and just do.
Being chivalrous in today’s world is not about laying your coat over a mud puddle so that your lady does not get her shoes wet, but instead showing her your respect and that you appreciate her company. Being chivalrous is not just a way to impress a woman but a way to live your life. It is about being aware and appreciating the people around you.
