Finding and Staying in Balance!

Developing and maintaining a sense of balance continues to be a challenge for me ... you too? Of course, it all begins in utero as we float to the rhythmic heart beat of our mothers but then, we run out of space and get shoved out! In a twinkling of an eye, we figure out how to cruise our domain then walk, run then dance, ride a bike then ski and kayak, etc. Eventually, good balance keeps us from falling over as we age ever so gracefully!
Michael Grab's art and meditation.

The emotional balancing act is a bit more subtle and tricky ... thankfully, relationships help me stay poised and stable even when the earth seems to shake, winds are relentless, and I feel overwhelmed or "beside myself!" 

The work of Michael Grab offers an inspiring example of how to illustrate our desperate need for balance tangible! How do you keep your composure and stay in balance???

"Michael Grab has mastered the art of stone balancing. He explains how he does it. “The most fundamental element of balancing in a physical sense is finding some kind of “tripod” for the rock to stand on. Every rock is covered in a variety of tiny to large indentations that can act as a tripod for the rock to stand upright, or in most orientations you can think of with other rocks. By paying close attention to the feeling of the rocks, you will start to feel even the smallest clicks as the notches of the rocks in contact are moving over one another. In the finer point balances, these clicks can be felt on a scale smaller than millimeters. Some point balances will give the illusion of weightlessness as the rocks look to be barely touching. Parallel to the physical element of finding tripods, the most fundamental non-physical element is harder to explain through words. In a nutshell, I am referring to meditation, or finding a zero point or silence within yourself. Some balances can apply significant pressure on your mind and your patience. The challenge is overcoming any doubt that may arise.”
