Balance

How does one create balance?

What does balance feel like in the body?

Mind?

Relationships?

Spirit?

Food?

Aesthetics?

Politics?

Heart?

Fashion?

Self care vs. Other?

Nature?

Food?

Money?

Sex?

For some reason, lately I have thought a lot about my fairly short-lived marriage and subsequent divorce.

Why did I say yes?

Why did I eventually say no?

What was the initial draw?

Why did that change?

Who was I then?

Who am I now?

When I am in questioning mode, I have always found indigenous people to have an intelligence I yearn for when my own ‘go-to’ places are beginning to fray at the edges and lose their initial usefulness to me.

I found a short video explaining The significance of the FOUR DIRECTIONS in the MEDICINE WHEEL

To the Lakota Indians.

It is digestible in a beginner Anglo kind of way.

I found answers to a number of my questions.

It is worth a look.

And maybe another.

    perhaps it is not about creating balance so much as allowing it to return no matter how briefly…tumbling over again and then it gently guides us back to center…maybe, I don’t know. I had a grace moment like this today in the whirl of my life, just directly centered, calm, safe, peaceful…grace.
