the perfect balance

It's exhausting, trying or pretending to be 'up' all the time. What a relief it is, to embrace 'down' too, and to see 'up' and 'down' as part of the great and perfect balance of life. And to know ourselves beyond both, as the vast open space that embraces these slings and arrows, these tribulations and triumphs of existence, and is trapped within neither. Ups and downs, highs and lows, tragedies and comedies, bliss and boredom and buses running late, birth and burials - the many faces of the One, moment to moment, shining brilliantly.
