Balance is the key that unlocks the secrets of the Universe, it applies to all levels of our being, body, mind, and spirit. Every Human secretly yearns for a state of inner balance and peace. Most of us are so out of balance, that being out of balance feels normal to us. Anything that we do can be overdone, or underdone. What may people call neuroses, are actually a state of imbalance. Once we achieve a state of inner balance, it acutally may feel odd to us. You should really examine what you have achieved, and how it really makes you feel. Does it feel good, and peaceful? Now you know what it feels like to be balanced, then you will know when you need to make an adjustment, to come back to that center point. If the pendulum swings too far one way, it will inevitably swing back the other way. The universe strives for balance in all things. Chinese medicine teaches us that we need a balance in all things. Restoration of the flow of qi, and balance will assist the body to heal disease. This applies to physical, emotional, and spritual imbalances. Many severe illnesses, such as cancer, can be traced back to a severe emotional trauma suffered by the patient. Treatment must apply to the physical body, the energetic body, and the spiritual body in order to achieve complete healing. Balance begins with breathing. Sit quietly, breathing in slowly. With each inhalation, breathe in peace, energy, healing, calmness, with each exhalation, release negative emotions, such as anger, fear, guilt, etc. When life's situations bring these emotions, allow yourself to feel them, but then sit down, and begin your deep, even breathing, relasing tension, and negative emotions, and bring yourself back to balance. Remember balance in all that you do. Too much of anything, even good things, will not work.
