It is a very hard balancing operation

According to the dictionary, balance is defined as: : a means of judging or deciding : a counterbalancing weight, force, or influence : mental and emotional steadiness.

Balance is like feeling the waves, taking appropriate action when circumstances dictate so as to maintain equilibrium— just like when it’s cold, your body shivers to bring its body temperature higher and when it’s hot you sweat to bring the temperature down. You can not freeze that moment of balance. It Changes. It comes, it disappears. it comes again.

The world we live in is fast paced, extreme stress, high pressure world.

Why is it so hard for human beings to find balance?

Balance is hard but it’s even harder if we conceive it as a place to arrive at, somewhere out there, still, static, an absence of movement, an unyielding destination.

Have you ever seen a spoon balancing on the edge of a cup? It teeters, like a seesaw. It’s a waver, a sway, a pivot, not fixed or rigid.

Balance is motion, the opposite of stagnant or passive.

So maybe, maybe in our own way we are in fact in equilibrium – unstable, precarious, active, alive, variable, free.
