The Middle Way

It’s the law of nature to have balance.

When the moon is full (as it is today) it is directly opposite the sun, balanced on either side of earth.

Fall equinox (Wednesday) is a midpoint – where the day and the night are roughly equal to each other – 12 hours each. A balance point.

“From science we know the if you pull a pendulum thirty degrees to the right, it will swing back until it’s thirty degrees to the left.” Michael Singer, The Untethered Soul

“So where is the Tao? The Tao is in the middle. It’s the place where there is no energy pushing in either direction. The pendulum has been permitted to come to balance concerning food, relationships, exercise, sex, money, doing, not-doing, and everything else. Everything has its yin and yang.”

Yin and Yang; a concept of dualism, describing how obviously opposite or contrary forces may actually be complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world, and how they may give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another.

Summer – Yang energy, fast, bright, expansive, external, heat, energy, thrust

Fall/Winter – Yin, slumber, hibernate, cocoon, mindfulness, healing, slow, internal

Seasons changing, days getting shorter, weather cooler, inviting us to turn inwards, perhaps slow down some of the busy summer beehive of activity. Inviting me to come into balance.

Nature in Balance

True Confession – I always wanted to be a Spiritual DJ.  Well…I am a Spiritual DJ, I just don’t spin anywhere.  But I love making playlists for friends and picking out the music at parties and events, creating an experience through sound.

Today I put 10 songs together that are peaceful and calming in a groovy kind of way.  Music to move sweetly around the house to.  From room to room, enjoying the inner space.
