Resolutely Fearless

Ernest Shackleton lived in the era called the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration. At 22 he had a dream he would cross one of the poles. It wasn’t until 1914, when he was entering midlife that he set off on a journey to become the first explorer to cross the Antarctic on foot. Raising funds for the expedition was just the first epic obstacle he had to overcome.

Of course it wasn’t a feat he could pull off alone. He needed to acquire a crew and so he plastered an advertisement around town which read: Men Wanted: For hazardous journey. Small wages, bitter cold, long months of complete darkness, constant danger, safe return doubtful. Honour and recognition in case of success.

The honesty of his ad ensured that the vast majority of people were repelled by the invitation.  

The timing certainly didn’t help matters. World War I had just started. Shackleton was prepared to stay and fight but as the trip was set and paid for the government ushered him to go.

For so many reasons the trip almost didn’t go ahead. Often we entertain a fantasy that our Calls to Adventure should be enticing, rather than terrifying. Consider a modern example of Shackleton’s ad for intrepid explorers.



The Intrepid Series

When Paul Hawken’s was invited to give a commencement speech, he was asked to give a talk to graduates that was direct, naked, taut, honest, passionate, lean, shivering, startling, and graceful. In short, to be intrepid.

The year was 2009 and the world was reeling from the GFC, where the lack of integrity displayed by the finance sector was having a ruinous effect on countless individuals and global economies. This was on the back of a collective that was finally facing reality in regards to climate change and the impending crossroads that humanity is at. Hawken’s delivered. The essence of his message was that civilisation needs a new operating system, it needs it within a few decades and we are the programmers.

If we are going to reconstitute the world, this new foundation will require individuals who have first reconstituted themselves.



The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is the fear of the unknown. - H.P Lovecraft

Prometheus and the Gift of Fire

Here in Australia, forest fires are synonymous with wanton destruction, invoking tremendous fear in people. We imagine what it would be like to lose our houses, our possessions and possibly life itself. The early European settlers were equally perplexed by how comfortable the indigenous Australians were with fire and how it was present throughout the seasons. As a result, large intense bushfires were uncommon.

Numerology for Compatibility

Compatibility numerology in relationships provides insight into suitability for romance, appreciation of differences and how to better cultivate relationship harmony.

When first meeting people we show our personality number.

But our heart’s desire number, or the deeper side to ourselves, is only revealed in time, as we feel safer and more comfortable with them.

Often we become attracted to the facade (personality number) that others show.

A prospective partner may be a natural match in terms of personality numbers, but a strong clash with our heart’s desire number.

Compatibility in Numerology

Equally important, is knowing whether our life path number syncs with a partner’s or repels them.

Our life path number, or ruling number, is the most important in our numerological blueprint.

    Having never experienced a Numerology reading or Astrology Reading before, I did not know what to expect. I went in completely open and Marcus really helped shine a light on myself, and showed me things about my inner workings that I were not even conscious of, but upon reflection were very true. Having had a soul blueprint with Marcus, I feel a sense of drive, curiosity and eagerness to challenge myself like never before to reach further than I ever thought I could ever get to. I feel empowered and much more confident in my past and the possibilities of my future. - Craig D
