Free for the Encounter

A voice that asks, “Who am I to deserve such?” is not your voice. It is one thing to be humbly grateful in the moment; it is quite another issue to put down oneself – to frustrate one’s voice. This is the roadblock of guilt.

A voice freed actively blesses the flow of all things and the unfolding in each experience. Voice free and flowing leads one to pursue impact in the larger encounter. An encounter welcomes you. Part of any encounter is actually a return Рa reminder of who you are and your place in the full story.

Consistently I hear the guilt an individual leader holds tight in relation to creating and giving space and energy for self. How tragic as one unconsciously dodges the encounter.

You grow in your ability to choose and act with a conscious voice as you acknowledge the blessedness of your encounters.

  1. Love this line: You grow in your ability to choose and act with a conscious voice as you acknowledge the blessedness of your encounters.
    How true Jeff…thanks for reminding us that our encounters, sometimes unexpected, can be the best blessings of all

  2. I’m just studying the book “The Untethered Soul” in which the author, Michael Singer, talks about the energy of freedom versus the energies of aversion or clinging. Guilt is an aversion, which stops energy flowing freely in us.

  3. Great point, Jeff. I find so many people feel they don’t deserve because they think they have to be perfect. Those are just thoughts and beliefs that limit us from becoming all we are capable of being.

  4. Jeff, I find your final line the most compelling. We need to be mindful of each encounter. Happened to me just yesterday. I had “thought” I was having problems (all strictly due to a bad-computer morning!) until several people poured out their hearts to be over personal/human issues. That put everything in perspective.
