Can you stand still on a bicycle? How about a unicycle?
I remember trying to learn a trick during my Mustard Seed Theatre Company days that involved juggling while standing on a teeter-totter. "You've got to keep moving..." said Peter. "Standing still won't get it done."
In today's world balance is highly prized. We want balanced, centered lives where our work hats do not prevent us from wearing the other hats of our lives. But, balance doesn't require stasis. Instead, to stay balanced, we need to keep moving.
Steady, controlled, disciplined, calm, we move and find a rhythm that works.
How is your balance today?
