Seeing Balance in Your Life
There seems to be a natural balance to the universe that cannot be averted. Although we spend many days of our lives wondering why we don’t have balance, the truth of the matter is, we do have balance, but we also have motion. A see saw with two 50 lb children on either end is balanced, but it may not be level. In fact, it may be moving up and down and up and down. Given time they will slow to a stop and all motion will cease. When one person on one end of the see saw pushes, what they’re doing is upsetting the balance by removing some of their weight just long enough for the other person’s potential energy to kick in and start moving downward. As soon as the person on the down-side can no longer reach the ground and their full weight is restored to the see saw, then they are once again balanced, albeit in motion.
Our lives are constantly in motion, and one thing that I’ve noticed is that when we manipulate the scale of balance in our lives, whether emotionally, financially, or spiritually, the natural opposing forces will eventually cancel out our attempts and we’ll be returned to balance.
In the case of money, I experienced this first hand, today, as a result of a “push” on the see saw of my finances which happened last August. I had forgotten about this single event, and the scale that was manipulated has finally come back to balance. You see, I had borrowed money from myself, and had forgotten about it.
There is a consequence to every action we have which points to the fulcrum of the scale of balance in our lives. If you borrow money from yourself, you will have to pay it back. If you go up a staircase, you will have to come down. You get the picture…I hope.
