Life is a balance of holding on and letting go.
— Rumi

Balance = A state of equilibrium or parity characterized by cancellation of all forces by equal opposing forces.

A glimpse of a perfectly balanced nanosecond or a constant flow of different energies that somehow manage to balance each other in the long run, while still constantly moving from one other extremity into another?

It is easy to look and imagine balance as a permanent state of perfection or something that needs to be maintained constantly without giving a change to the metamorphosis. That can easily lead to extreme thinking patterns, deprivation and stagnation. Is it even possible to achieve that, and do you really want to live like that?

However, if you change the perspective and give up the idea of trying to find a perfect balance on short term and controlling your behavior according to that no matter if it comes to your well being, career or everyday life it invites in the opportunity of lifelong growing and learning as nothing is stagnant in this life.

Those opposing forces that cancel each other out are in a constant flow and movement in our lives, from one end to another, sometimes resting on the edge of despair then changing the direction in a second, creating balance to the bigger picture.

If you resist you will stay stagnant, closed to the possibilities of life and the vibrant beauty of the constant flow.

If we don’t open our eyes and concentrate only on what is going on right now it becomes difficult to recognize and honor how our decisions and actions have shaped the balance on longer term.

As all the changes in our lives can happen in a second give yourself a permission to feel just like a feather up in the air, flowing along with the wind that can take you to every possible direction if you let go of the urge to control everything that is happening and give yourself a permission to move and dance in a constant flow with the life energy where the journey is more important than the end result and the balance comes from accepting both the ups and downs and trusting that it makes sense in the bigger picture.

For all of us the balance comes in different forms and in order to see what that will mean in our own lives we need to let go of what we think is acceptable and right, and listen to how our energy responds to our actions and what our intuition guides us to do.
