want balance?

You can't have it. 

It's not a thing. that can be had.

It's not a place that can be reached.

In balance, you won't take a position. and hold.

Balance is active. There won't be stillness waiting for you there.  

It takes—you give your effort. you place your attention. repeatedly. Deciding to stay: to meet what's required. and to release what isn't needed.

Narrow your view, get specific about your expectations. as things shift. Expand your willingness to work with whatever shows up on your way.

Until you change direction.

It can't be done. You won't be done. You won't get there.

It's an activity.

It can be practiced. 

and, if you're holding your breath—collect your thoughts, try again

balance is focus.
