A Study of Balance
Many people struggle with the consideration of balance and how to live a balanced life. If we approach any question from a place of balance, we are able to access different sets of intelligence, different sets of ideas. Whereas if we approach any question from a place of imbalance, we are likely to get suboptimal or at least not the full range of potential that’s available for us.
Living a balanced life means expanding our awareness and perception to consider both our physical and energetic anatomies and centers. We are not just one thing, one energy, one person, but multiple inner lives.
Being who we are, and resisting the pressure to conform or meet someone else’s expectations, allows us to make our own choices about how to grow, evolve, refine, be happy, and live a balanced life.
Finding or creating a balanced life is a journey of self-discovery of what we will and won’t have or accept into our lives and how we manage interpersonal dynamics.
Where do you find your inner strength and resiliency? Why is it important? It’s like in rock climbing; if you can find a stable, strong ledge to put your foot on, you may be able to reach out for more.
A balanced life will integrate the personal, cultural, and universal lives within and see that one does not need to consume or dominate the others.
A life of balance and growth will integrate or merge the spiritual and the practical, the material and the universal, in a journey of constant renewal and opportunity.
A natural process of personal growth integrates the best of our past, the lessons learned, and builds a life of constant renewal with hope for a better future.
