This is a reblog and gentle reminder to stop the juggling today 🙏
It often seems so hard to keep life in balance.
If we see life as a balancing act between opposing sides, then we feel ourselves dipping from one side to other. Balance becomes a juggling act of opposing sides. An other thing to work at and get just right!
If we see balance like this its no wonder that we feel off balance most of the time. In life, everything is changing and nothing stays static. If we see life as a balancing act, then we constantly find ourselves trying to find balance again and again.
Isn’t it exhausting to always try to realign ourselves like this?…
I see balance in a different way…. Balance is finding wholeness that comes from our center of being.
Our center keeps us grounded in the present moment. As life goes on and everything in the outer world shifts and changes, our inner being is a constant presence.
Without connecting to our center we will continue to swing back and forth in the pendulum of life.
This center is what I call our Middle Ground. That place where we pause and let go of the external world of striving, strategizing and planning…. and instead, allow ourselves to let go and simply be.
To let go of thinking, and tuning into our inner being and the Presence within.
Here we nourish and refresh ourselves … and find our natural state of balance.
When we come from this center we will never lose our way in the highs and lows of life.
Instead of looking outwards to see what you can juggle, look inwards and find your center of being.
Let this be a gentle reminder for all of us to make time to pause and find peace within.
It is so precious.
