    Stretching Yourself Thin

    I think it's easy to take on many tasks and stretch yourself thin. It's something I've grown to be more cautious of. For women we are expected to take on so much both in our work life and home life. Finding a balance in key. I'm not there yet, there's room for improvement but I...

    Not good and evil, not black

    and white, not yes or no. Just balance in everything you do.

    There is a line that divides the world (plane

    of existence, human subconscious) in half. On one side is a world with lollipops, cotton candy, and unicorns who **** rainbows. But the rules are so strict that it's basically a dictatorship. On the other it's always dark and all the "fun" stuff happens. I believe that one...

    And Meditation Helps To Find It-

    One of the quickest tests to see if you're in balance or not is to see how pure your interactions with others are. If you're quick to judge, snippy, short, or unable to make eye contact, and you feel like life is out to get you, then it's a pretty sure bet that you're not in...

    My Balance....

    Too much of anything is never good. Hence I ration my indulgences. Just enough to get what I need an not what I crave or think I may want more of... This semblance of control gives me balance. The random don't effect my equilibrium because they exist beyond my control. So I...

    Samsara Versus Nibbana

    Whatever you do in life binds you to rebirth, the wheel that is samsara. To escape his you must seek balance. The Nibbana sought is the art of non being being.

    A Great Balance of Life

    Balance in life is sooo very important.  I am so glad to go to work each day and use my mind in challenges.   When I come home I have the hustle and bustle of kids and their schedules that it seems to be boring.  It's easy to care for my kids, it is just so...

    I believe that everything has a purpose on this

    planet and that there must be a certain balance for existence. Whether it's good or bad, right or wrong, and that everything just happens. I am not saying that I support bad habits but that these things happen whether we like it or not and that we all must find a way to live...

    Don't be dumb people!

    !!! There is no such thing as balance! When you stand on one foot it means you are a alien with supernatural hovering abilities but your mentally retarded so you can't fully hover. Balance is a old foke tale moms used to tell kids if they wouldn't goto bed! It's like vampires, it...

    I have noticed that there are a lot of people

    who talk about good, and bad, and all that. But hasn't anyone noticed that there has to be a balance to everything? It took me a while to figure this out too, but it openned my eyes to a lot, if you really think about  the two colors black and white, in my eyes it...

    Karma is about balance.

    Chemistry teaches us that for anything to be stable it must have a balanced charge. Unstable things react with those around them in an attempt to reach a balance. I have learned not to say "why me" as everything I experience is (or will be) balanced equally with good and bad. So...

    Sangha Invitation

    In my pursuit of further understanding and reduction of suffering I have studied and practiced mindfulness as much as possible on my own over the past year. The practice of mindfulness supports peace, happiness and balance.     Sangha is a word meaning "association", "assembly...

    Someday I heard someone say something like this : you only get as much pain as you can handle. If someone could tell me the real quote that would be great. Well, I think that it is not about the person you are, but about what is happening in your life at the moment. I mean that...

    Balance Is More Than Staying Calm and Learning Ho to Meditate

    Some people seem to be under the impression that if you believe in the balance that you must be a being or peace and/or a buddhist or something. The truth is of course, that balance is about keeping the positive and negative at the most stable ratio possible. This does mean...
