What is a state of BALANCE and how exactly do we find it? It’s that comfortable place in our lives where we feel contentment – a personal comfort zone. I like to think of it as a sweet spot right between Bad Karma and Good Karma.
It’s true, many people have said or done something they regret and perhaps they feel that they have paid for those errors in judgment with whatever Bad Karma has intermittently descended upon them.
It is, hopefully, also true that many people have done some very fine, noble and good things and therefore feel well served by their own behavior when every now and then Good Karma finds them.
But in between the Bad Karma and the Good Karma is normal existence, an even plane of going with the flow, making due, finding the happy and minimizing the sad moments of life. That is BALANCE. It’s a state of waking to a feeling of comfort and falling asleep in a state of peacefulness. Finding a state of BALANCE is sometimes about as good as it gets in a weak and weary world. Maintaining BALANCE builds strength and leads to a state of personal well-being which allows us to be the best that we can be, and that allows us to pursue our goals with a feeling of steadiness within.
Like someone standing on a log that is floating in rapidly moving water, life requires you to move left, move right, shift your weight, change your focus, hold on tight to your balancing rod, loosen your grip – at all times move to and fro as needed to maintain your BALANCE. It’s that BALANCE, a state of inner calm and steadiness that helps to make each day an adventure.
It’s important to realize that everyone loses their BALANCE sometimes and falls. Falling is never fun but it is an opportunity to regroup and to find your BALANCE within yourself, and within all of your relationships of life.
“There is no shame in falling down, the shame is in not getting back up.”
