The Point of Balance
Light and Dark, Yin and Yang, Hot and Cold… When opposites are completely balanced, the result is stasis, yet we seem to constantly seek balance.

Striving and stress have become the badges we wear to prove that we are of worth. We are often so weighed down by responsibility and worry that it only takes one drop of something unexpected to tip us over. So, yes, we long for rest. Yes, we want less to manage and juggle. Yes, we need balance’s reminder that a place of calm and peace is possible.Click on title to continue.
