Looking at this image, we might think: "what a silly question!" Of course we can't find balance on our own, and of course we don't magically maintain balance. So if we would never expect this of someone else, so why do we expect it of ourselves? Balance is a daily practice that necessitates the help from others - our partners, our family, our friends. Balance is also a fleeting moment that rests between too much and too little, too high and too low. It is not an end destination but a regular effort. The more we experience the feeling of balance, the more familiar we become with what creates balance, and the longer we can maintain it for periods at a time. What does balance look like for you?
