03 Sep 2017 » Practicing the art of balancing
When we talk about balancing, both physically as well as metaphorically, we often use the words finding balance, as if balance were a magical state that we only need to discover, hiding somewhere under a giant lotus leaf. I don't want to read too much into the simple phrase "finding balance", but the words we use to describe concepts and things do subtly influence how we think about them. Finding balance makes you search for an idealized unchanging state that you think exists somewhere. Thinking about practicing the art of balancing on the other hand focuses your awareness on the active and ongoing part you play in balancing. And when you internalize this perspective, practicing the art of balancing will become much easier, because balance is something dynamic and ever-changing, and requires — and thus teaches you — continuous full awareness.
