We aim for even, ever adjusting to the energy current, riding out its waves.
Inevitably, imbalance finds balance only to go out-of-balance. It is the ride of a lifetime, energy inventing and reinventing itself endlessly, in one experience after another ever in harmony.
We meet ourselves time and again
in a thousand disguises on the path of life.
To make the sitar sing is to adjust each string, “not too tight, not too loose.” To live is to fine-tune ourselves between too much and not enough. It is how we find our song among all the others.
There is no one anything for all, no normal that stays. The nature of being is change.
To live is to fine-tune.
Nothing remains; everything passes by.
The only thing that always abides is your witnessing.
That witnessing brings balance.
That witnessing is balance.
*The phrase, “not too tight, not too loose” is associated with a well-known story about the Buddha and a sitar player. The Buddha compares the practice of life to tuning the strings of the sitar: “not too tight, not too loose.”
