EQUILIBRIUM IN LIFE

 Image result for common balance images




Peace in Life is all about equilibrium.

There is an analogy in Nature itself.

Tranquility prevails in Nature so long as there is equilibrium…. i.e a balance of natural forces.

If there is an imbalance of air pressure, Nature brings back balance through hurricanes and tornadoes, causing, in the process property destruction, loss of lives and other calamities.

Earthquakes and resulting havoc are due to a shift in the delicate balance among the tectonic plates underneath.

Tranquility for humans also can be achieved only through equilibrium and conscious balancing in every aspect of life.

In relationships:
You need to identify your most important relationships...after all you have many roles to play… as a spouse, a son or daughter, a sister or brother and so on. You have to consciously maintain a proper balance (by doing tight rope walking, if required) to ensure peace and harmony in all these relationships and among your various roles. Tilting in any one direction (or even a perceived tilt) can cause emotional storms.

In desires:
Needless to say, a perfect balance between ‘want to have’ and ‘can have’, whatever be the nature of desire, is most desirable to avoid disasters of the physical, financial or emotional kind.

At work:
Many relationships have suffered at the altar of work, due to over diligence and ambition. Also, many careers have nosedived due to neglect of work for family’s sake.

A RUMMY TALE

As he lay there, wallowing in stale rum and self-pity, know not how long;
The red-eyed monster sprang up suddenly from the brimming liquor;
Gulping down a glass of liquid fire, he roared, “Now! Shoot her now!”
“She deserves no pity- who has let you down so badly.”

Drowning in rum, he attempted to raise his head,
Raising placatory hands to his personal devil,
“Now, now, let us not go there, so afar!
Remember, she used to be my cynosure till week last,
It’s just a pity that she was charmed by someone else.”

“Beware if you show any mercy to that unfaithful wretch!”
Growled the beast, spitting out shards of glass in disgust and adding,
“Be a man, take the sharpest knife and plunge it in her heartless heart.”

He cried out loud and pleaded with folded hands,
“No, no, can’t ever do that, please for Heaven’s sake, go away.”
“Then you leave me with no other option,” sighed the monster,
Stabbing him straight through the heart.

“Cardiac arrest due to excessive sorrow and stress”-

LOVELINESS

LOVELINESS

Loveliness is not all about physical beauty,
It is also
A smile shimmering through tear- stained eyes,
A widening grin ironing out an elder's wrinkles,
A mother's joy seeing her child eating well,
A couple embracing joyfully in reunion,
A calf jumping about in joy around mother cow,
And many more...

RIGHT WRONG

Seeing her eyes glow in excitement,
Obviously though she has it all wrong,
I rush to grab the correction opportunity,

Till I have another look at the gleam in her eyes.

Hell, I think, let me be wrong a hundred times over,
If only to preserve that glorious joy,

Rather than prove her wrong
And watch her enthusiasm wither.
