The Law Of Balance
- For a better understanding of The Laws of Creation, I suggest
you start with the parent article discussing Universal
Law & Chaos, before reading about this specific law.
It will help to put this law into it's proper context.
- The Balance Of Life and Spirit
- The divine Universe was created by energy as a means to expand
itself into matter. In metaphsyical theory, that was the very
first act of balance. Balancing spiritual energy to physical
Living In Balance
- Many people these days are taking a good look at themselves
and their lives. They look at how they interact with their family
unit, how they conduct themselves within business matters and
how much time they spend on making the
all mighty dollar and the illusive career. With the next evolution
of the spiritual human beginning in full swing in June 1996,
people are trying to find the right balance of life's daily events.
Wither on a conscious level or spiritually sub-conscious level.
- Perhaps it's because the common idea of what a "spiritual
person" is, can often be far beyond our capabilities to
attain. We look in a mirror and condemn ourselves for something
we did that was "non-spiritual". We may say I've "fallen
from grace" and then beat ourselves up about it later. But
we try the next day to aspire to the illusive image again.
- It's great to have lofty goals, as long as you can attain
some of them once in a while. But one thing to remember is that
our existance as incarnated beings is only 50% of who we really
are. We are also 50% spiritual. As such we have human desires,
needs and emotions. Those human traits are not always conducive
to spiritual thinking or spiritual ways of living. But we need
not beat ourselves up about it.
- There is some validity in the old adage "Too much of
a good thing can still be bad for you". It's very true.
Living to much in the spiritual mind and not being grounded isn't
any better than those who live in the physical world and never
give their spiritual natures a second thought, or a first one
for that matter. It's an adage that tries to define living in
extremes is not living in balance.
- What we are here to learn above all, is balance. Through
that lesson, you can learn acceptance, and how to let go of the
past. Letting go doesn't mean loving those who hurt you, rather
it means forgiving them within yourself and then letting go of
the emotions to move on.
- Many people think being a spiritual person means you don't
cuss, you don't lie, you don't have bad thoughts, you don't drink,
do drugs, or talk about sex. To some you don't even have fantasies
or get angry or even say a bad word about anyone. Now if that's
living as a spiritual person, then no one on this planet can
call themselves spiritual. Being someone who is always pushed
around emotionally because you believe that's what living as
a spiritual person means, isn't living in balance. Perhaps your
lesson would be to learn how to stand up for yourself, believing
you have rights and your own emotions have validity.
- If someone makes you mad, then accept the emotion for what
it is. It is a human emotional response to a personal situation.
Now isn't that what you're here to learn about? Aren't we here
to experience human interactions and emotions on all levels in
order to learn? How are you going to do that, if you don't "feel"
- Living in balance means keeping that anger in perspective.
You don't take it out on someone else and you don't try to kill
or mame the person you are mad at. You just accept the emotion
for what it is. If you lash out at the person who made you mad,
then you will have to accept the consequences of the energy you
created by doing so. Better to accept, let go, and allow the
divine laws of karma to provide justice.
If you act upon desires to avenge your emotions, you will be
no better off than the person who hurt you.
- Being spiritual means you trust in the Divine to take care
of you, and allow the Divine forces of the universe to deliver
justice to those who deserve it. Learn for yourself how to let
go of the anger, let go of the hate
and hurt, and move on with your life in balance.
- I'd like to note, we're not talking about physical crimes
here. We're talking about personal emotional issues. If you believe
someone has harmed you physically, then we urge you to contact
the authorities in your area.
- We are all part human and part spiritual being. We need to
accept those traits we see in ourselves as "un-spiritual".
It is who you are. How can you ignore part of yourself? Better
to address the part you don't care for and change it to a positive
you do like. Bottom line is, learn how to accept the human traits
you have within your being. They're just as important as the
spiritual gifts you're trying to attain.
