In life, especially during these modern times that are a constant go, it’s easy to lose your balance. But what do we really mean when we seek balance in reference to spirituality? Balance is often thought of as a midpoint between two opposing forces. Black and white, hate and love, faith and skepticism. But life is not broken into a straight line that simply. Most people assume that finding balance means never venturing too far into one side or the other; remaining in a true neutral. Others believe it means staying only “in the light” and eschewing everything considered “dark.” But we believe that neither one of these views is truly balanced.
True neutrality does not exist. It’s an impossibility, because it assumes that there is some kind of universal “center” that is true for every single person. But life is much messier than that. We all experience different things, and even when we experience the same things, we may draw different conclusions from them. So everyone’s idea of “neutral” is not the same. And trying to remain only in this imaginary center point deprives you of experience. In life we all experience highs and lows. That is part of what makes life amazing; the endless state of change. That should be embraced.
