the balancing act

January 30th, 2010 by

In his book Letters to a Young Brother, actor/activist Hill Harper defines balance as being:

“…secure enough to be vulnerable, strong enough to be gentle, wise enough to be humble, and powerful enough to serve others.”

I first heard this more than a year ago on Oprah.  I was reminded of it again recently.  And I LOVE it.  I mean I really LOVE IT.  Not as an idea or a thought but as a deeper, fuller, richer way to experience the “sweet spot” of life.  When we are balanced, we are clear and, when we are clear, the eternal light (within all of us) shines through.

I was hooked on drama for a long time.  I believed I had to create things around me to complain about or attack or gossip over, in order to feel better about my imperfect self.  Now I realize that judging myself as flawed kept me from experiencing my divinity.  I know I’m not perfect, but I also know that I am love.  We all are.  And when we are balanced, our true self (love) is expressed.

Out my window, it’s snowing.  Inside Rob makes tea.  Balance is beautiful.
