“It is the same with people as it is with riding a bike. Only when moving can one comfortably maintain one’s balance." ~Albert Einstein
"Set peace of mind as your highest goal and organize your life around it.” ~Brian Tracy
Last week we talked about the timeless concept of wisdom. Today, on this in-between-seasons Mind Bullet Monday episode, we continue our exploration of values with a foray into balance.
Like wisdom, balance is a value of utmost importance. It's critical to note that balance is not a static state, but rather a continuous process.
Think about a tightrope walker. At any one moment in time, if you took a snapshot the walker would appear off balance, tenuous, leaning this way and that. Balance is maintained and regained with slight adjustments.
It's the same with our lives. There are times we feel off-balance, depressed, angry, or unsettled. Regaining our equilibrium is a dynamic process, making slight adjustments here and there to set us right again. It's OK to find yourself off balance at times. Simply be aware that it's time to make an adjustment and regain your equilibrium.
Think of an off-balance mental attitude. For example, we sometimes get so caught up in a political position that we can no longer see or appreciate the other side. This is unhealthy. Balance and peace of mind come from being able to appreciate both sides of an argument without judgement.
Our mental and physical balance, our health, is in a state constant oscillation that brings us to equilibrium and peace —if we can direct it properly.
Listen in for more on the equalizing force of balance, how it leads to peace of mind and unity, and how habit and PARR come into play to create the adjustments and fluidity of true equilibrium.
