Life out of balance

Life out of balance.
The fast paced harried world of heart pounding intensity that we inhabit often reflects a deep sense of loss and confusion. As individuals we can easily become distracted by the various roads or choices in our lives, simultaneously attached to wanting more, and fearful of losing what we have. There are times when each of us turns our back on our true self, and then frantically begins to search for clarity elsewhere. The greater disharmony we experience on the a planetary scale lives in intimate relationship to personal imbalance. This vital connection is what the Hopi term koyaanisqatsi, and represents a whole species careening about in a maze of chaos and desire in direct proportion to the confusion of millions of individuals. Rather than depressing us, this notion creates a deeper understanding and sense of hope. By focusing upon the microcosm of our individual existence and living with as much balance and integrity as possible, we are contributing to a lessening in a small way, of the greater confusion. To move toward harmony within ourselves is to help heal the greater whole.

  4. Eliza my sister in spirit, this lovely post resonates deeply with me. I often share about finding peace within, and sharing it outwardly as kindness, because I fully believe this is the way to lasting peace in the world. As every person raises their energy of love and compassion for themselves and everyone around them, we help heal the world. Beautiful post! Namaste. Gina
