Trust and Authenticity (Authentic Trust)

Reading Marlo Morgan’s Mutant Message Down Under spread yet another layer of shielding as I continue to pound-away at the grip of judgment. As Marlo told her walkabout story with the Real People, I was impressed by the beauty of these individual spirits; spirits free of debilitating judgment.

For me personally, it is becoming more and more clear that all trust begins internally in each one of us. Any trust we experience collectively exists only because individuals have first given trust from the confident core of who they are.

With this fresh layer of protection, I have committed to a new level of intention in the effort of breaking the grip of judgment in my own experience. The breaking is not that of being judged; it is freeing my own mind and heart from the need to judge.

As I am tasting the growing flavor of this freedom, it becomes clearer that trust is authenticated in me. When authentic trust flows from each of us one to another, we only then experience the dynamic flow of collective, creative trust.

Your confidence is in your authenticity. Embrace each experience for its lasting treasure and let the rest go. This is a sure practice for breaking free of limiting judgment on self and others.

About Jeff Brunson

In this whirling 21st Century the individual needs to embrace the authentic self and confidently leverage the energy and power found there. As we entered the 21st Century, I became more concerned about what leaders like you needed for successful influence and personal fulfillment. As we move deeper into this challenging 21st Century, I’m more convinced than ever that the core of my work is in helping individual leaders remember who they are − a trueness. It is about confidence found in your authenticity.

  1. So many of us want authenticity in our relationships with others, but as you point out, it has to begin by trusting yourself and being authentic with yourself. I don’t think we can trust others if we don’t first confront the issue of trust in ourselves. Thanks for this thought-provoking post, Jeff.

  2. “Embrace each experience for its lasting treasure and let the rest go. ”
    How dead on is this statement. How many times have we come across others where they hang on to the negativity….thanks Jeff for your insight

  3. Congratulations, Jeff. Your intention to liberate yourself from the bondage of judgment serves ALL of us! I don’t mean that I experience you as judgmental, far from it. I mean that when one of us commits to a bold, audacious intention to transform, that intention impacts every single one of us.

    BTW, that book is one of my favorites!

  4. Jeff, so great! I read a book kabout a walk-a-bout once too. So amazing. I am fascinated by what we have to learn from “primitive” cultures–A LOT! Thank you for being a voice to this end.
