Finding the balance
Finding the balance is a science
Unbalancedness leads to falls
Things can get broken
Chemical compounds can explode or poison others
Building can crumble
People can die if they aren’t balanced.
But being balanced has no popularity
No one strives to simply be balanced
So instead we turn balance into an art
We put people on a beam and expect them to do tricks but neglect to realize that sometimes standing upright and walking a straight line is a big deal
We want our chemistry to change colors or bubble up safely - we want a beautiful reaction and not a toxic one
We celebrate great architecture for its beauty and not its stability.
Sometimes balance looks like
a good night’s sleep.
A healthy meal
Reading a novel
Taking a deep breath
No one gives out kudos for this.
Yet those projects that do end with a trophy will get done fast, better, and with flair when we take the time to balance ourselves.
Find the balance. Make it an art. We will all be better off for it.
Until Everyone Hears,
11 Honest scales and balances belong to the Lord;
all the weights in the bag are of his making.
