The world is in perfect balance.
We have light and dark, good and evil, kindness and cruelty, happiness and sadness, abundance and lack. The givers and the takers, day and night, sunrise and sunset. Its all in perfect balance.
I know what you’re thinking – how can I say that? Where is the balance when we look at what’s on the news every night? The injustices we see and read about daily. Show me the balance!
It’s understandable to question how we can we have balance when we have such ferocious wealth living side by side with abject poverty. A world where unbrazened cruelty lives side by side with pure kindness.
This world in truth is in perfect balance. The imbalance lies within ourselves.
I have seen over my life those who are always supportive and those who never are. There are those who are generous with both time and abundance and those that simply are not and are only available in the role of taking.
Equally I have met people whose very existence is based on taking from others yet they believe that they are relentless givers. Those that claim they give too much too often when in fact give nothing. Curiously often those that believe that they don’t give enough are the ones that give too much.
We are told that to give is good and to take is not. However many of us are lying to ourselves of our true nature. It it time to address the balance in ourselves with truth and honesty.
‘There is a sufficiency in the world for man’s need but not for man’s greed.’ Mahatma Gandhi
Are we reaching a tipping point on the planet or is the tipping point in us?
