Balance applies to everything and balance between anything and everything is crucial to our survival and the survival of the planet. Whether we talk about the physical balance of objects and beings or we talk of the balance between ideologies or religion we are all involved in a balancing act all the time and in this we don’t have many choices. The most important thing to see is that we are all involved in and with being balanced. If we don’t recognize that fact we can create a myriad of problems for ourselves and others. When we lean too far in one direction or another we stand the risk of falling and taking others, friends or enemies, down with us. We must recognize that the only choice we have is to strive to remain balanced and to help others to do so or to refuse to continue to retain our own balance and thoughtlessly affect who knows how many others. Once we’ve achieved balance to one degree or another for ourselves the effect can domino and our environment becomes easier to live in and offers more pleasure since our balance leads to the balance of more and more of the planet. Do you think life can be lived well without balance?
