Finding the Natural Balance | April 24, 2015
I dissolve in activity, in
relationship with my surroundings, so that the inner world can flow out,
and the outer world can arrive within. I have to both put in effort and
know when to let go. There’s a natural balance, a dance, between
embracing and releasing: turning your surroundings into yourself, like
the tree that absorbs carbon dioxide, and turning yourself into your
surroundings, like the same tree releasing oxygen.
