I was meditating this morning and the thought came to me that I needed to find balance in my busy life. I was distracted by that thought, thinking how difficult it can be at times, when I realized that isn’t the point. The point is, we need to find balance, but it shouldn’t be difficult at all. Balance should be easy, calm, relaxing. I pulled myself back and envisioned myself walking in a garden path with beautiful flowers around me instead of the tightrope I had been envisioning just minutes before where I was tense and afraid of falling. Balance cannot be achieved unless we are calm and relaxed and joyful.
