centered

centered

Being balanced would be ideal, but most days working towards balance feels like a fight. Not the good kind of fight. Not the kind of fight that is hard but leaves me feeling good at the end of the day. The fight I feel is one of being defeated. A fight, feeling like I am failing at this thing called life. In trying to find those moments where I am just enjoying the blue sky, stress is growing.

So what would it mean to absolve myself of the idea that I need to be balanced, and to adopt the practice if being centered?

the perfection of us

the perfection of us

This leads me to wonder though, if everything in nature is perfect just as it is, why do we as humans sometimes fall into the belief about ourselves that "nobody's perfect"? We may hold this belief about ourselves and others when we criticize our appearance, our behaviours and the way we show up in this world. Can we relearn to hold a gaze for ourselves and each other that we are still as perfect as when we came into this world as tiny infants? And yes, perhaps there may be areas we want to improve upon, but rather than focusing on the perfection at the end point, can we turn our gaze to the perfection within ourselves that already exists? When did we forget that we too are a part of this circle of perfection in nature?
