Becoming free from the experience of trying to figure it out
Thank you Scott, your article is really precious and offered me a true moment of synchronicity. I needed this right now. I imagine my professional future and my next job so far away....somewhere outthere, impossible to reach. But your article made me realize that maybe I will wake up someday only to realize that I have found what I was always searching for, that I was just not ready to see it. And much more easily than I always used to imagine. Maybe this will happen as soon as I am ready to let go of all the vague images that I have in mind, in order to open myself up for things to catch me by surprise.
Great article! Focusing on our being more than our doing. And not fixing ourselves in identity prisons. I consider myself an artist, a serial entrepreneur, a coach, a web developer and a farmer. And a father and a husband, a son, a brother, a friend… that’s very important too, if not more.
I would agree that consciousness work is fundamental. It has been the basement of my multi-linear self and activities along the past years. It also allows me to see the infinite potential of my human existence.
Thank you, Scott! Excellent article that occured to me first thing in the morning after meditating upon these questions again during the darkest hours of night. Finding the perfect balance between the inner work and the outer world of business seems to be a never-ending path to me. I've noticed that trust in process taking place on its own weight makes the journey itself more and more enjoyable, though.
Okay this was kinda a breakthrough. I feel like I’ve known this to be true but I’ve been trying to spiritually bypass myself into believing it instead of actually doing the work. Or taking jobs I knew I wouldn’t like but told myself it shouldn’t matter because that was just my ego talking instead of listening to my intuition and being in more of a flow. Thank you for this 🙏
I needed this exact article today. Thanks Scott! I just had the experience of avoiding the career talk at a party, very relevant.
This was excellent, Scott. I didn’t know it at the time, but leaving the company I founded and sitting in the liminal space between, while uncomfortable, was a huge catalyst for growth along this inner dimension. Of course, only because I leaned into that as the purpose, rather than simply getting comfortable again by quickly starting another company.
Hey Scott, very powerful. This resonated deeply as it described my journey and it is comforting to know that what I was experiencing is indeed common.
This quote describes the magic of letting go and becoming one with the "flow"
"One day you’ll wake up and notice you’re feeling great for no reason. You have no idea what your next thing is, but for some reason, it no longer feels like a big deal."
Thanks for sharing this Scott!
This resonates deeply with me. I’ve been surrendering to the flow more and more in the last year. I know I’ve been more peaceful but more often than not my intuition leads me to do less and remain where I am. I’ve been unhappy at my work and took a bit of a break, during which I searched like crazy for another job. But then I declined offers because there was no bodily “yes!” feeling from my intuition. Surprisingly, I’ve started to enjoy my current job again after being back, but I struggle to believe that remaining at a job that made me sick is what’s best for me right now. So it’s a huge challenge to keep myself from grasping after change.
I'm so deeply appreciative to you for articulating something I've been dancing with for the arc of this year: the flow state and way-of-being. "As far as career direction goes, it’s my experience that the most fun game occurs when you can earnestly move through life without needing to know." I'm grateful to no longer have career ambiguity in this season of my life's work. Now I can share this article when people ask me "why?!" And "how?!" 😀 Also, there's a tenderness to your writing here that is lovely. The words peace, and softness, and unconditional each lend to that tenderness. Thank you 🙏
