Balance is so easy to think of as opposite forces at play. Classic visual example would be a scale in a state of equilibrium with equal distribution of weight.
As I sat today, I thought of balance as being more circular, a cycle of energy dependent upon mood.
Some days, it feels great to be ‘cooking on all burners’ while others days are more restful. Though I believe the magic to finding balance is to find the right combination of mood/activity at any given moment.
Perhaps meditation is the means to cultivate this winning combination when the factors are not in sync.
