As we step out onto the path that our design has for us, we only find courage to journey with associated accountability as we hold the creative tension formed by the union of inner and outer charges.
“It began in mystery, and it will end in mystery, but what a savage and beautiful country lies in between.” −Diane Ackerman, A Natural History of the Senses
In this work I do as a Coach I’ve come to realize some important truths; one of which is that I am ultimately coaching an individual to that space where the internal and external collide.
Without a guide the resulting bang of this Impact can be deeply terrifying as one most instantly begins to search for what is wrong. Although my question leading to individual articulation of Desire & Intent is, for the person, a freeing revelation, that freedom can be accompanied by pure terror of a territory ahead, a ravaged hillside in the past, or even the view of the beautiful country suddenly brought to light.
In order to arrive at any understanding of my own creative tension, forming my commitment to Impact, I had to accept the attachment to desire while simultaneously realizing how crucial it was to let go into intent (for there, I have no control).
As we become more conscious of the need around us to which our Impact is called, we cannot allow the eagerness to fill such need take away any energy to do so.
Only in your creative tension may you let go of the narcissistic victory (a need to win/control) and flow with the Impact experience.
