Balance

 

Let’s face it, we are all experts at doing. So no need to chat about that.

However, finding balance between being and doing, action and non-action, unconscious and conscious awareness is another thing altogether.

Most of us have learned about balance from doing too much. The first time we crash and burn we say, ‘Note to self’…”Must slow down, do less and rest more!” But we forget where we put that memo, and so, we begin the crazy 8 of doing, then crashing, then doing, and then physically being stopped by sickness, chronic illness or just sheer exhaustion and doing again.

But….this formula gets a little repetitive after awhile don’t you think? and is very hard on our bodies.

So what’s the secret? For me it’s just a practice of being. Over many years, and still learning, I’ve finally realised its the practice of being that allows me to see when to do …and when to be. When to take action and when to surrender.

I can’t see it when I’m only doing. It’s not possible. So I have to practice being. A daily discipline!

Being is a set time in stillness, and silence every day. Autumn, Winter, Spring and Summer.

When I’m in this space, my life feels like it flows rather than pushing uphill. In this space, I learn to feel and understand the true meaning of balance.

Where the Eucharist of the ordinary happens

Transforming our broken fragments

Into an eternal continuity that keeps us.”
