Balance. You know it is a goal. The fact that you seek balance shows that you know the nature of life is up and down, back and forth. And yet, you then bemoan the downs and backs, seeking only the ups and forths. Do you not yet realize you came here for the fullness of experience? Yes, the downs may be uncomfortable, the back of the forth a bit unpleasant, but does that not make the ups and the forth that much more enjoyable? It is through contrast that you come to know fullness and wholeness. It is the extremes you may wish to avoid, which is why balance is the goal, and may these lessons be as painless as possible.
You are so very loved.
When I am down, frustrated or angry, the thing that brings me back to balance is .. gratitude. It almost feels like the more I review my blessings and gifts, the lighter and freer I feel. If I take it a step further and thank someone or remind someone of their importance to me and to life, the negative emotions evaporate. Literally. If I need to deal with something, I trust the Universe to make the opportunity for me to do so rather than pushing the envelope myself. Darn if it doesn’t work!
