When a thing is in balance you don’t even notice it. There’s no friction. No tension. There’s nothing to talk about. But when a thing is out of balance it’s easy to see. A bicycle that’s out of balance wobbles. A chair with one leg longer than the other is unstable. A machine on the blink gets erratic. In terms of the person, coming into balance means that all the energetic layers of the inner being align. The essential being falls into kinetic equilibrium. Inner and outer come into proper relationship. The blocked unblocks. The disconnected connects. The closed opens. The contracted expands. Running water flows.
