creating boundless space in our lives

Balance

Leave a comment

We exist in two dimensions in this world: form (things, people, thoughts) and formless (infinite, space, universe). But most of us are addicted to the form, the contents of our lives, that we only see the dimension of form and forget about the formless dimension. We are out of balance because we focus on the procession of things in our lives(happiness/unhappiness, success/failure, rich/poor, good/bad) but we are not aware of the space in which these things occur. Then we add our thoughts and emotions to these things and make it fit with our self-created identities so we get a distorted view of reality. In other words, we add things and people to our sense of self because we don’t feel enough deep within. We look to the world to fulfill us, so we lose our balance or are devastated when things change or people leave us.

How do we  regain our balance so we don’t get frustrated by the constant flux of things? We start by allowing things and people to be as they are. We let them play their roles in our lives, good or bad. We watch them unfold without judgment or comment.  We realize that there is nothing we can add the situation that will make it better. It IS already fine the way it is, otherwise it would not have happened.  We take ourselves, our thoughts and judgments,  out of the situation. We open up the space for things to occur. This space connects us with everything and everyone, so we gain insights and realizations that compel us to do right action. We regain balance in our lives. We experience the peace that passes all understanding.
