Posted:When I am in peace and relatively balanced I have a whole heap of strong positive beleifs about the importance of letting go of the things you cannot control, about cultivating a certain detachment, about keeping myself centered...
then comes stress of any sort, worries about your health, work... anything... and in a way it does not matter wehther it is a "good or valid reason" or not. what matters is taht suddenly i am off balance.
then I try to revive those shining theories I have but suddenly they irritate me because i am not in the realm of the mind, rather in a more animal realm...
like tonight -dang i am finding it hard to sleep -
I know the feeling of getting back on track and finding my balance again but i know there are many ways to reach that state again.
I used to count a lot on others to help in that glorious task, but the more I grow the less i beleive in it. I mainly expect from partner and friends to give me that love and safe feeling that i have time and space to be imbalanced and then get balanced again and it is OK by them.
so what do i do ? quite often I meditate, or just take deep breaths. I certainly think back about the great lessons and events of my life and what i felt right after they occured and try to reconnect with this incredible energy. you know? like after surviving the tsunami i promised myself to never allow gratitude to leave my heart, but i need remindesr sometimes I have even a few texts i wrote to myself that i like to reread to remind myself of things.
so what about you ? what do you do to find your balance ?
with so much love shine on cass
"I want brown bread... no, that is diesel oil..." "So I was raised in Europe, where History comes from ..." "NON !!! La Plume de mon oncle n est pas Bingibangibungi !!!"
is being off balance a bad thing in your opinion ?
I think it depends on the person.
For me, the way that I define balance, being off balance is a bad thing if I stay there for too long. As you know, I strive off of balance and build from a strong foundation. That's what gives me strength to do things that makes my heart flutter and fly.
But that's a decision that's very personal.
I think there needs to be SOME balance within you. It just depends on whether that is a balance of physical surrounding or a balance of something within you.
Hrm... This might need more words to explain...
Well, shall we go? Yes, let's go. [They do not move.]
