The cycle of living. It occurs to me that our worlds - nature, our relationships, our scientific world, the spiritual realm (whatever that is to each of us), art, business, athletics, health - all facets of living we experience are going through a kind of natural balancing act. We are catching ourselves before we go beyond repair. There are many great tools emerging that have taken a back seat to ambition, gain, competition and progress. The nature of balance is to regrow, refurbish, rework until equilibrium is restored. The balancing of nature is a wonderful model to observe. We see it in our children, our animal friends and if we allow ourselves, we see it in our individual and collective relationships inside ordinary activities.
Some of the tools coming to the forefront for use in this balancing act are what I call CEO:
Creativity, Compassion, Communication
Energy, Enthusiasm, Education
Originality, Openness, Others Oriented
It begins at home - that is, with ourselves. Starting right where we are, seeing what is, scooping it into our arms and appreciating it. As I practice CEO, I find the tension necessary to hold me upright returns and I live in harmony, balanced in my surroundings.
