Dreaming and Planning

I believe that balance does exist.

I’ve been quiet about this for some time now, but there has been a rising desire to speak out with this currently unpopular belief.  Why is it unpopular?  Well I think that many people were chasing balance in an unbalanced way that felt constrictive and not heart centered and thus there was a backlash of thought leaders breaking out of that trap and stating that balance is a myth.

I get it.  And I think that this was a necessary part of the story line for all of us.

And now I think its time for a paradigm shift.  Even just holding faith that balance is possible, that it does exist, is a strong place to stand in the world.  When we hold a belief that something is real and true we are able to see it manifest in the world around us and see avenues of creating that in our own lives.

Dreams, Actualized

When I met my wife, she was a massage therapist and I was practicing Chinese Medicine. I thought we were pretty similar people on pretty similar tracks. She’s six years younger than I am, so, naturally, I figured I’d be ahead of her in most ways. Boy, was I kidding myself.
