A Changing Balance
"Sameness is not always balancing."
Anonymous

Some of us have bought into the illusion that we can work hard to get our lives organized and "balanced" and they will stay that way forever. Not so!

Sameness is not balance. One of the givens of being human beings (like it or not!) is that we are constantly granted the opportunity and mandate to grow, to learn, and to change. Our houses and our cars keep trying to teach us that all material objects are in a constant state of disintegration, and we don't want to believe them. How much more difficult is it to see ourselves and our world this way!

Balance will never be attained once and for all. That's just the way life is. That is the human condition. We can either accept it or keep trying to live in illusion, Some of us may choose the third option of doing both-accepting it for a while or for some things and then not for others. We do make it rough on ourselves, don't we?

The most balancing thing we can do for ourselves is accept the joy of feeling balanced when we do, recognizing that the balancing and rebalancing of ourselves is an ongoing process that offers us a minute-by-minute opportunity.

Take a look at any aspect of your life you believe you have "balanced" or are trying to keep the same and see if this is causing you stress. if so, try putting on new glasses and celebrating the balance that is there while accepting the change that is just around the corner.
