We live in a world of rapid change and to engage with the many challenges this unique time can bring may leave us struggling with what it means to have a balanced life, a life of clarity and purpose about what is truly important.
Approaching any question in life from a place of balance allows us to access different levels of intelligence, consciousness and ideas.
But what is a balanced life? A key perception is that life is a journey of coming into and going out of balance. Resisting the pressure to continually define ourselves and preserving an inner space that is definition-free, a space in which we can change, grow, and evolve, is itself a pretty radical idea and important in the study of balance.
This series of conversations will weave a loom of considerations about a balanced life, and look at the inner awareness, technologies, and perceptions that can help us access and get back to a life of balance, harmony and growth during times of change and challenge.
I'm totally out of balance right now. I'm not feeling that I'm centered in myself. What caused it is that I was suddenly playing a game that was not my own. I'm finishing up my Master’s. I need to find a job, so I was starting to enter this chase, and to apply to jobs without asking myself what I want. Will I be happy to do this job? Or, am I applying because I'm capable of doing it? Or, what are my reasons? So that really took me out of balance in the sense that I didn't set the terms.
