For a vehicle to run smoothly, balance of wheels is important. Likewise, if the life has to run smoothly, it is essential to have a balance of mind, balance of the good and the bad and balance of sorrow and happiness. Again, to achieve this, you will have to balance your thoughts emotions, values and goals in life properly. Thomas Merton said, “Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance and order and rhythm and harmony”.
When we are thrown out of balance, we experience more stress in life, which will be unable to manage, leading to more troubles. Even Nature has to be properly balanced and if this is interrupted, results in catastrophic changes. A little bit of sadness is needed to balance the happiness; otherwise the word happiness will have no meaning. Be a balanced person and enjoy the beautiful life offered to us. Here are some wonderful quotes on balance.
