A balanced wheel gives you a smooth ride. A Balanced life gives you the pleasures of life. An unbalanced wheel gives you a rough ride. An unbalanced life gives you the griefs in life.
Where joy grows deep, sorrow must deepen; the greater one's pleasures, the greater the pain.
It would be nice to have many of the quotes we read have a ‘BUT’ addendum written in the sub-text. Be kind BUT don’t get walked over. Be vulnerable BUT also have strong boundaries.Don’t judge BUT please do discern.Help change the world and make it better BUT first focus on changing yourself and making yourself better. Be courageous and bold BUT be compassionate alongside it.
Life is a tightrope walk. One has to balance the do's and don'ts.
A balanced inner calmness radiates from a peaceful centre. It neither craves others' approval nor rejects others' presence. It neither pulls towards nor pushes away. It has a reverent attitude towards life and all its inhabitants.
There is a fine line between stubbornness and stupidity as well as intensity and insanity.
