Our Inner Territory – The Freedom of Desire & Intent

In our world of work it can become far too easy to walk into our space of supposed expertise, close a metaphorical door, do our own thing, and never be truly observed in this work by our own self or any other outside entity. While we are very often tempted to claim this cloistered behavior as a preference, deep inside we know we are conspiring against something “true” desiring to be sharply present.

Throughout my career, amid diverse opportunities, I have witnessed (and experienced) the fear associated with sudden freedom; a moment of realization beamed on the true self. The fear can emanate in a question as to whether the other, who has shown me my self, can be trusted or not, and fear also arises from a question as to whether this exposed self can be trusted−even though it is supposedly Me!

Brian is the coaching client who confessed, as I was trying to coral him into getting our first session on the calendar, that he might need some prodding to keep personal development at the top of his to-do list. In our fourth session Brian was finding himself vulnerable and exposed as the new level of awareness opened abruptly into his unique Desire & Intent.

It as at that point that he chuckled, and then apologized for same. It seems he had texted his wife (who knows my work), “Jeff Brunson is hurting my head.” The chuckle had come at her response, “He is just showing you, You!”

Desire & Intent, in its singular sense, is the Impact of your presence−providential permission to be with both self and the other.

It is at this Impact point where we find our originally intended courage to be Free.
