Balance / Imbalance
Just as riding a bike or walking involves losing and regaining one’s balance—in other words, a balancing act(ion)—so is Life. The only thing is that “balance” and “imbalance” are inseparable “partners” which cannot be considered or experienced alone. And only if one attempts to consider them alone—which takes pure imagination and never becomes anything more than imagination—can they become problems to be threatened or overwhelmed by.
You understand that imbalance is a problem, but you are unaware that balance without imbalance is immobility—another word for dead. Gaining one’s balance to the exclusion of imbalance is to become immobilized. Put even more succinctly, balance without imbalance is terminal, just as imbalance without balance is. Be clear about this and you will not react righteously, taking offense at what is nothing more than movement—BE-ING.
Remember that I have said that problems are the leading edge of answers. “Behold, I make all things new” means that “what IS” yields to “what IS” yields to “what IS” . . . now . . . now . . . now . . . except that it doesn’t do it in time, it does it in Mind.
As it has been said, “Mind rests in action,” but It is not immobilized. You have to be willing to “rest” — be at peace — in motion (the losing and gaining of balance) without separating them imaginatively and attempting to achieve one or the other exclusively! That distracts you from the movement, and being DISTRACTED is a fearful experience, even though the fear mistakenly becomes associated with the movement. This is very important to understand.
