Stuart Motola is helping men in their quest for truth.
Yesterday, I was fortunate enough to have a Sunday with my 14 year old son, saving old ladies from evil furniture. Yes, we ventured out to be bold heroes with Boulder (Colorado) Flood Relief, and got sent out on two missions that had us driving 30-40 minutes to do minimal work. Yes I understand, old ladies need help moving furniture away from walls, need to know that the world is good, and that others care, yet we inevitably left both jobs, feeling a mix of satisfaction and sense of not having done much. Still, we met some nice people, saw other worlds, did some good, and had quality time as father and son.
I mention the anecdote about because a truth I’ve been withholding lately is “I need to spend more quality time with my son.” I’ve been wrapped up in my world, losing track of him, his life in high school is getting busier, and we’ve been losing each other to unconsciousness. Taking a step to seize a desire within one’s self that could easily get buried is a simple example of the work I’ll be doing with men in the “Men’s Quest for Truth” 8 week workshop in Boulder, CO, starting October 2. And if interest peaks, I will bring this online in a national forum.
Quest for Truth. Like me, you may struggle with the word truth, as it has been mangled. Yet truth in the internal realm, unlike fact or fiction in the media, represents that which is undeniable, non-negotiable, real like the ground you walk on. So when I direct men in their quest for truth, it will be working with that which is undeniable, in the moment and the long term.
In the moment, a man may recognize Mondays suck and I struggle on Mondays. As a result, he may decide to achieve 50% of what he set out to. This saves him an entire morning of chiding himself to get his ass in gear. On the less transient front, a man acknowledges, I need to love my partner more. From there, he spirals into I have no idea how to love her more, and then into I need her to love me more. Whatever is undeniable for any man, knowing his truth is a process of developing it, attending to it, creating an eye and ear for it, of knowing what he knows and what he doesn’t know. In this process, he gets him to the core of what’s holding him back, what’s his way forward, in living the life that dreams him.
My truth, I need the support of other men to do the work that makes me feel alive. Please support me. Comment on this post or email me at [email protected]
