Ring of Capable of Doing and Ring of Doing

We face major hurdles or trials and can only think that we cannot do anything anymore. Even at such time, there are “something we can do,” and “something we are not doing even though we can.” It is the wisdom of Ring of Capable of Doing and Ring of Doing that helps us discover what we can do to open up a new future.

When we face difficult situations or obstacles that seem hard to overcome, we sometimes have feelings welling up from our mind, expressing excuses and reasons for not being able to do it. When that happens, our consciousness is fixed on “what we cannot do,” and our mind ends up losing its energy.

At such times, we must comprehend that “what is impossible to do” and “what we are not doing even though we can” are two different things. By doing so, we will be able to have an entirely different view when we see hardships or trials.

For example, if you are not an athlete, it is impossible to run 100 meters in 10 seconds. It is in the outside of the Ring of Capable of Doing = in the Zone of Incapable of Doing. However, to continue training in order to run faster, is inside the Ring of Capable of Doing, that is, in the “zone of not doing even though we can” (= inside the Ring of Capable of Doing and outside the Ring of Doing).

We stop focusing on “what is really impossible to do,” but instead, we search for “what we are not doing even though we can” and put it inside the Ring of Doing. When we continue to focus our consciousness and conduct on “what we do,” our mind regains its energy, and we will be able to see possibilities in the situation. When we continue our “doing” like this, we will be able to expand the scopes of Ring of Capable of Doing and Ring of Doing, and we will be able to achieve our life’s aspirations.
