Balance of Life

Black and white.
Light and dark.
Up and down.
And does not
the yin yang symbol
represent the balance
of duality
that exists in this life?

Are there not
highs and lows
like a pendulum swing
that moves to and fro,
back and forth –
and the farther it swings
do you not feel
the balance getting smaller?

And does not nature
provide some models
of how to balance
the extremes that
are thrown in its way?

You visualize the tree –
a universal symbol of nature –
with its roots far below,
anchoring the tree
into mother earth,
the limbs reaching high
up to the sky, the sun –
to bring life to the tree.
And the sturdy trunk –
the bridge between
limb and root –
does not the trunk
connect the opposite
parts of the tree –
providing the balance
for the tree to stand –
able to sway when
the strong winds blow,
being flexible,
yet holding its ground?

As the extremes of life,
like strong winds that blow,
seek to lash out
and move you off
your place of center,
your balance of peace –
can you sense your roots
far down into the ground –
your limbs reach up,
getting light from above
and you are supported
from your trunk-
the balance that holds
you steady and strong,
being flexible,
yet holding your ground.

And does not duality
show you where
the balance is –
as you find your center
in the black and white,
light and dark,
up and down
world you live in?

As the yin yang symbol
represents
the coming together
of the opposites –
are you not a perfect
mixture of
human and soul –
finding your center,
the trunk of your tree –
as you become the
Balance of Life?

Balance.
Center.
Breathe.
Peace.
You Are.

Hi, my name is Sandy. Welcome to You Are Love Now! On my journey of Awakening, in meditation, I was nudged to begin writing what was coming through my consciousness, from my Higher Self and beyond. This happens almost daily and I have been encouraged by those who read these inspired messages to share them with a wider audience. These messages come through me, but they are received from a Higher Source than what my mind could create on its own. I present these Poems of Awakening to you, dear soul, as we travel this spiritual journey together. And the message that I always feel from these writings? You Are Love Now. Perfect. Whole. And always so very loved. If these messages speak to you, I invite you to follow this blog so you may receive the ongoing messages as they are posted.
