“The pursuit of balance can create imbalance because sometimes something is true.” –Daniel Okrent
It always sounds funny to me when people talk about achieving balance.
Or striving for balance. Or working on, or toward, balance.
Balance is our nature. It is default. We don’t work toward what’s default. We stop working and find ourselves there.
We don’t achieve what’s natural. We stop doing so much and poof–there we are.
Balance is right under our noses. It’s amazing what we can see when we stop looking for it.
