Life is about a balance between too much and too little. For that reason, Buddha always said the word “right”. “Right” means balance or equilibrium. The extreme is wrong in both cases. You often see that somebody was trying too hard to crack some exam, but when the result came out he failed. The same thing happened with the one, who gave too less effort for that test. But, the one, who put the right effort, cracked it.
It likes riding the bicycle where you have to keep an equilibrium between your right and left to stop falling. It’s about staying at the center and ride the cycle by holding that balance.
It’s not a hard thing to keep that balance in animation. Just need an awareness. When the symmetry in life is disturbed, you will feel a pinch from inside. You can realize that the feeling of too much or too less. You simply need to compensate that by placing an extra weight or losing the excess weight of the balance machine of life.
If you are too busy in your workplace and ignore your family or your passion, it will knock you that you are about to lose your equilibrium. Then you need to balance that by spending quality time with your family or find some time to pursue your passion. It relieves your stress and provides you an extra energy to do the work more effectively.
In the corporate world, people are engaging more on their left-brain activities like planning, analysis, profit, loss and much other logical thinking. It increases stress, which has a big impact on their working life and the family life as well. They need to do some right brain activities like some creative work or take an interest in art like painting, music, poetry. It will balance the excess left brain activities. The correspondence between the two hemispheres of the brain turns over you better clarity, better creativity, and better productivity.
The balance in life relieves your stress and makes you more productive and efficient. But, don’t take stress to keep the balance in life. Don’t worry; the imbalance always pinches you from within. Just be aware of that fact. It will tell you which is too much or which is too little. Just balance it and move the bicycle of your life in its direction.
