Here we are with yet another exciting edition of
Kaleidoscope. This month we are exploring the theme of balance. Since time
immemorial, man has always strived for balance – balance in health,
relationships, work and life, career, emotions, mind. Yet somehow it feels
everyone is still searching for it. With the new era of electronics, smart
gadgets and hectic lifestyle, balance is something that looks like a far away
If we notice the universe very closely, we will see a precise
balance in the universe and its entities in spite of the perceived chaos. The
planets move in their orbits at a particular speed. Any lack of balance in
their orbit or speed can send them crashing into each other. Similarly nature
shows that balance.
The five elements of creation – Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Space
also always remain in balance. Any imbalance in them will cause problems. For
example, excess of water in the form of rains will cause depletion of earth and
life, excess fire in the form of heat will cause drought. Everything stays in
balance for the harmony to be maintained.
Even in our body, the cells maintain a balance of water and nutrition,
homeostasis ensures temperature is regulated and balanced in the body.
According to Ayurveda, The three Doshas or Humors – Vata, Pitta and Kapha in
the body are balanced and are responsible for proper functioning of every
system of the body. Anything in excess
or deficiency will cause problems in the form of diseases. For example, excess
of Vata will create diseases like constipation whereas deficiency of Vata will
cause the body system to become sluggish.
All the ancient medicine systems like Ayurveda, Chinese,
Tibetan and the more contemporarily discovered energy healing systems like
Reiki, Pranic Healing, Theta Healing, EFT etc. are focused towards bringing a
balance in the human being on all levels – physical, mental, emotional and
Moving beyond the body, we need balance between work and
recreation. These days most people find their lives off balance where in they
are spending majority of their time in work nurturing their physical aspect and
neglecting the emotional, spiritual and mental aspects of their life. We are
living 20% of our life neglecting the 80% and expect to live 100%. Seems like
an irony. The result is the widespread disease called stress.
Stress is nothing but living a life out of balance. Lack of
balance causes stress. Life is never ending series of desires. The problem
happens when we make the desires as our center of existence and forget to
differentiate between needs and wants.
To achieve this balance, we don’t need to go very far. If we
can manage to balance ourself, our emotions and being, if only we can begin to
listen to that still small voice inside our heart, the balance can be achieved.
In this edition of Kaleidoscope, we explore more such themes
and also look at ways on how to achieve that balance in our lives, live a fulfilling
life. You can send your feedback and suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also connect with us on Facebook and Twitter.
