Yes. Balance IS the Key to Life.
Equilibrium. Equipose. Equal distribution of weight.
Simple enough. Right?
About as simple as an elephant balancing on a ball. I'm sure he's telling his fellow pachyderms, "Don't do this at home, kids!"
Life is untidy. A little chaotic. Rarely in balance.
Are you super ambitious? Good luck with your relationships.
Determined to spend quality time with spouse, kids, friends, neighbors, community groups. Religious organization of choice & that needy acquaintance who keeps calling you? Kiss the Nobel Prize goodby,
Okay maybe I'm being a little extreme here. That's right, these examples are out of Balance!
Balance is the dynamic dance of opposites seeking equilibrium.
That's right, balance is DYNAMIC!
Yin and Yang
F = -F
Wave and Particle
And ohhhh yes, Good & Evil
The one constant you can always count on is change. And change is merely a recalibration of forces at play in:
The Dynamic Dance of Opposites Seeking Equilibrium.
So "change" may knock you off balance or possibly into balance.
But the dance continues.
Let's get literal.
Stand on one leg.
You may think you need to find stillness to achieve balance. But even if everything appears still there is a constant dialogue between the brain and multiple muscles and nerve fibers in your foot moving forward, back, side to side, constantly recalibrating in...
A DYNAMIC DANCE OF OPPOSITES SEEKING EQUILIBRIUM!
That's balance, baby!
So look at your life, your work, your relationships, your body, your mind , your spirit.
Is something out of whack?
You can always recalibrate.
As long as you can dance.
