The Art of Living

All Blog Posts, Spiritual Teachings

As I strive to bring balance into my life, I reflect on the choices that I have made that create my life’s art.

Balance is a natural state of being. It is inside us but gets lost in the chaos of our lives by the choices we make in reaction to how we feel.

Living a balanced life does not mean that everything is perfect or stable. It doesn’t mean that we don’t have to struggle or feel pain. Instead, it embodies living with life’s natural rhythm and cycles in synchronicity to our internal rhythms. Balance is a state of being where the various aspects of life and ourselves work as an integrated whole.

To begin to reclaim our natural state of balance, practicing the art of being in the present time connects us to our body’s rhythmic patterns. In doing so, we can hear and feel our body’s subtle movements of synchronized directives that assist in guiding us toward choices that resonate with life’s ebb and flow. How we choose to interact with this creative process determines the emotional pressures that we feel daily.

Living in the present time requires intention. And intention requires a conscious awareness of which time zone you invest your spirit in. Are you stuck in the past living in regret, in the future, trying to control it, or are you “being” in the present?

Life is a continuum of energy, and we are set in motion by how we respond or react to it based on our perception of how that energy is affecting us. If we live in states of internal chaos, we are unaware of our feelings and miss the subtle signals our body communicates to us. 

So as I sit and sometimes struggle to find my balance, I remember that I am responsible for how I choose to be with my energy and the dynamic nature of life’s energy. And in those moments of overwhelming emotion, I can choose to unearth my inner knowing of balance within. By bringing presence to the moment and remembering that although I know, I cannot control life, I know I can control how I choose to be with it.
