Balance? Peace?


Peace that passes all understanding is worth striving for.

So is balance. The two have a connection. Balance can give peace and peace can give balance.

This is not the “peace” made up in the 70’s hippie movement or by John Lennon.
Far from it. All it amounted to was a silly sign:peace

Countries have fought throughout history for peace. Interpretation could mean people learning how to get along with each other.

Well, we know how that doesn’t work.

Why? We have lost our way.

We have moved away from that which is peace.

We have replaced it with “self.” Self centers on self which forgets others resulting in greed which is a basis for pride. Pride goes before the fall.

Peace can only be found through Christ. Step-by-step we have to rid ourselves of self as it is the only way to truly see Jesus. This is done by getting closer to God, reading his word and asking him to help us become more like Jesus.

On the other side of spiritual peace is the need for physical serenity. Our bodies react to all kinds of positive or negative feedback. The key is to balance them both.

Yea, I know… I hear you screaming, “how can I possibly be peaceful in this messed up, mucked up world?”

You have to search for it. Yearn for it. Seek it with all your heart. You may as well start now because the world isn’t peaceful at all. But you can be with God’s help.

Jeremiah 29: 12-14 “Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you,” declares the Lord.”

The following video caught my attention last night. As I watched it, I could feel my body and mind relaxing as she performs one of the most impossible acts of balance I have ever seen. It is a little over 7 minutes long, but she will keep you glued right up to the very  end. After  watching her, I questioned whether this performance is more physical or mental.  What do you think?
