As far as I know there isn’t a Middle Ground Theory …. but I have a couple of ways of looking at it 🙂
The first is your Pendulum of Life:
The pendulum of life often swings from extreme highs to lows. Your middle ground is when it is closest to the ground, instead of being up in the air and out of touch. When you slow down and find your feet, you step on to your middle ground. In the pendulum of life there is always movement.
Take a moment and notice where you might be on life’s pendulum right now.
The second approach I call the Waves of Life:
Sound waves and ocean waves naturally crest and and fall. In the flow of the movement they pass through an undisturbed position. Waves can’t rest here, but you can. You have a choice. You can slow down and not let your emotions and thinking take you on a crazy roller coaster ride.
Most people think they must keep riding the crest of the waves in order to be happy. They cling to the highs in order to avoid the lows. Their middle ground gets overlooked, but its the place when there is no disturbance.
Take a moment and consider your own attitude towards these highs and lows, and the part your middle ground plays in your life.
I would love to hear your perspective too.
