Balance is the art of reciprocal co-existence. Balance finds unification in biplicity. Each opposing force is weighed and a compromise is formed through synthesis. This is a major mission of our life’s experience. The lesson is learned through: 1) the friction of awareness, 2) the weighing of attributes along their polar axes, 3) the mutability to ease the tension through transcendence, and 4) peace developed through detachment, the lifelong task of compensation. Understand oppositions as complementary. Denial defies balance and pushes the pendulum to its extremes. Peace is the reconciliation of extremes. Having learned the lesson of balance, truth emerges. The feather of Maat (truth) upon the scale measures the delicate equilibrium you have developed in your life. On the mundane level, you are to evaluate how your body and mind might be out of balance. Are you eating a “balanced” diet? Are you allowing a balance of exercise and rest? Do you spend equal time at work and play? Do you engage in as much mental concentration as you do in meditation and relaxation? Are you able to keep your emotions at an even keel? Are you “too” anything? Consider your mind-body profile. You have the power of intention to bring all aspects of your life into balance. Extremes of any kind can interfere with your ability to know truth. Finding balance is the key to living more naturally, without expending energies needlessly. You may wish to consult with a therapist to guide you through the process. Seek and you will find. Find and you will live more fully in this life, prepared for higher levels of learning.
