Where is your balance? Why? Do you believe that things are getting better or worse?
I am looking the fact that there seems to be no balance in our lives. I am seeing that we need to get the balance back to understand that things are different and better in some areas and worse in other areas.
The reason that balance is more important than other aspects of things. Here is why I say that balance is so important. We need to have balance to stay healthy, both physically and mentally. If you look at modern movies you can see that there is a lot of unrealized balance that needs to be held. If you look at the series ‘The Matrix’ and you pay attention to the third movie, when Neo is talking to the Oracle they have the following conversation:
Neo: The Architect told me that if I didn’t return to the Source, Zion would be destroyed by midnight tonight.
Oracle: [rolls eyes] Please… You and I may not be able to see beyond our own choices, but that man can’t see past any choices.
Neo: Why not?
Oracle: He doesn’t understand them – he can’t. To him they are variables in an equation.
Neo: What does that mean?
Oracle: Everything that has a beginning has an end. I see the end coming. I see the darkness spreading. I see death. And you are all that stands in his way.
Oracle: [nods] Very soon he’s going to have the power to destroy this world, but I believe he won’t stop there; he can’t. He won’t stop until there’s nothing left at all.
Neo: What is he?
Oracle: He is you. Your opposite, your negative, the result of the equation trying to balance itself out.
Neo: What if I can’t stop him?
Oracle: One way or another, Neo, this war is going to end. Tonight, the future of both worlds will be in your hands… or in his. (http://www.matrixresolutions.com/index.html?page=conversations_neo_&_oracle_m1)
If as the movie shows, balance is not restored then there is a major problem. Now while the movie is fiction if we look at the real world you will see that the balance is not in place. With finance, we have a trickle-down plan going and it doesn’t work. The reason is that the money doesn’t make it to the bottom and those who are less fortunate don’t get any of the money. Again, there is no balance in the way that it is handled. We need to have the simple balance in our lives of who is going to do it. We need to take our lives into our own hands and find our balance.
