What’s wrong with going in loops?
I’m often told that I repeat things too much and that I lead others in circles.
I’m still trying to understand how that’s a bad thing.
What’s a loop?
Hmmm… the orbit of the moon, the planets, a day, a year, heck there’s a super ellipse formula from which every natural form can be mathematically modeled… an ellipse is a loop.
You could say that LIFE is on constant loop. Seasons are cyclical.
So I ask again, what’s wrong with going in loops?
What’s wrong is that it defies the ‘business as usual’ paradigm of linearity. Start, Middle, End goal.
Again, life doesn’t work like that.
It’s a big part of why we’re always striving for things and then unhappy when we attain them.
We set up our hopes that our happiness will be associated with the achievement of the linear process, whatever it may be, that promises success.
Then we’re disappointed when we realize that the success we’d envisioned was disconnected (aka separated) from the rest of our lives and thus, much of our experience remained unchanged.
Which is fine when you practice radical self-acceptance, but is problematic when you operate under ‘business as usual’ rules.
Because then you have to find a new thing.
Nothing wrong with finding a new thing. The question is WHY you’re seeking the new thing.
If it’s to “achieve” transformation, I hate to break it to you, but you’re still in the illusion of separation, my friend.
No shame in that. Separation has a strong grip on us all.
It’s just not what will ACTUALLY change anything in a way that feels better for any of us.
The path of radical self-acceptance is different.
No “doing” to achieve transformation.
Rather, “doing” is a natural byproduct of true transformation.
I’ve developed a simple model to describe what I mean.
Let me know in the comments if you’d like a copy, and I’ll send you the link when it’s ready.
Here’s to transformation, the lazy way.
