Finding the right balance can sometimes feel like passing a thread through a small needle hole. A lesson I’ve learned over the years is not to force things; not to keep trying to force a square peg through a round hole, especially when I am feeling frustrated or impatient. Forcing throws me even more out of balance, and is usually ineffective anyway. My mind is mostly alert, but sometimes too much so that I forget to relax.

Nature is like that, in balance clear and seamless. Balance helps us connect, even merge, with nature and the natural state of the mind.
