And within each us –
the interlude of equilibrium-
When I first created this image, I saw it completely differently. I titled it “Tipping Point” as I imagined the sphere rolling to one side or the other and falling off the surface.
Yet, when I looked again, I saw the sphere at rest, having found its equilibrium.
When we are in a state of equilibrium, we are able to absorb the vacillations of life without gaining momentum towards are own personal tipping points.
The more we pray/meditate/exercise/eat right/find fulfilling work, the greater our base of equilibrium is (in my mind.)
Whenever I write such things as I just did, I question my own sincerity. What a luxury it must be to have such thoughts and the belief and means to follow through on them.
I realize not all have this luxury.
I wonder if we could perhaps be a little more patient with those individuals who are in the time/space of life without the opportunity for a wide base of equilibrium.
How frightening and exhausting must it be to live close to the tipping point each and every day.
