Spinning in Circles

When we consciously create space to allow what is, something within us opens up and helps us be more in alignment with what's possible and what is already within us.

Spinning in Circles
Most of the time, inwardly, most of us are thinking about changing what is. While we're doing that, our focus and energy are going into that. It doesn't actually fix or change anything. It just distracts us from what is.

We're all spinning in circles

I'd like to ask you, what's going through your mind most of the time? Even if you're just sitting in a chair doing nothing at all?

If you're like me and most other people, you're thinking about changing what is. Inwardly, most of us are thinking about what we might be wanting to change, what was, or trying to improve what is right now.

It's rare when our inward thinking is focused on exactly what is in the moment. But everything is what is in the moment and rarely does that align with what's spinning around in our head.

And while we're thinking about something else, that's where our energy and focus are going. It keeps us busy spinning in a circle and nothing changes. It doesn't actually change or fix anything. It just distracts us from what is.

The way most of us live is resenting what is, rejecting what is, trying to manipulate what is, trying to improve what is. All that does is obscure what is from itself. — Hale Dwoskin

However, I'm not saying don't try to fix, change, or improve anything. What I'm saying is to recognize how often we are thinking about changing something in ways that consume our energy and don't fix or change anything.

So what can we do? We can begin to recognize how our "spinning in circles" is limiting us and consciously begin to open up space to just allow everything to be as it is.

The beginning of space beyond boundaries

This newsletter and what became space beyond boundaries started two years ago when I consciously stopped working and thinking about what I wanted to change, fix, or improve.

What came out of that space was completely unexpected and surprised me. I just allowed everything to be as it is and allowed life to be as it is.

When we consciously create space to allow what is, something within us opens up and helps us be more in alignment with what's possible and what is already within us.

And interestingly, the more open we allow ourselves to be and the more open we are to what is, the more is revealed to us.

This is a great place to allow ourselves to move forward in our lives and to create what we choose.

Two Tracks to Stop the Spinning

The world is calling upon each and every one of us to step into a fuller expression of who we really are to meet the challenges we face today.

I'm currently offering two workshop tracks for paid subscribers that will help you move beyond the past and stepping more fully into creating a better future.

Forward Thinking Workplaces

In the Forward Thinking Workplaces workshops, we primarily open up new ways of working and interacting with each other. Engaging with other like-minded people in a safe space where we focus on listening to each other will also enhance and expand your inner capacities and energy.

Our next workshop on Wednesday, February 23, 2022, focuses on the most important questions we can ask ourselves. Learn more and register at the workshop registration page.

Space Beyond Boundaries

At Space Beyond Boundaries, we explore developing our competencies in six key areas: Forward Thinking, Awareness, The Inner Journey, Understanding of How the Mind Works, Leadership, and Questions, Listening, and Dialogue.

In our next workshop on Wednesday, March 2, 2022, we go on a deeper exploration of the mind and how it works. Learn more and register at the workshop registration page.

Please get in touch with me at bill@billfox.co if you have any questions.

Hope to see you at one or both upcoming workshops!

To your forward-thinking life & great success!

The more we allow ourselves to just simply be present with, or notice, or welcome, or allow or accept what is as it is, the more the natural beauty and power of what is reveals itself.
