Balance In This Mess



Think about balanceImage via Wikipedia

Sorry the long absence. That really is the best I can offer you guys at this particular moment. I've been working long hours, often 6 days a week for the past couple of months. The only break has come in the form of last minute trips to see the family. Alas, I'm back. I've had the type to type of some quick thoughts on the phone though. Nothing extremely elaborate, but thoughts were relevant then and even now. 

This world has a unique sense of balance. You can find it everywhere, and in everything. I'm not talking about an object's specific symmetry, but more toward the totality that it posses. Depending upon your vantage point this could be hard to see. This becomes more compounded when viewed not on a micro scale, but from a macro scale, of everything in this beautiful mess we call life. Our dance is contained within our own microcosms. We must remember that no matter how large one becomes, we are still a speck in the fabric of the macrocosms we find ourselves within.

Your life is an epitome in the cannon of exsistance. A short span that has and will see the insanely beautiful, and often infuriating , balance that everything posses. What your story will say is ultimately up to you. Your actions will dictate your outcome. The obstacles you face have been and will continue to be hard. The people are just as divided, as they are united. Where there is unconditional love, there is uncompromising hate. Where you see overzealous joy, there is looming despair. For every feast there a famine. When there is rain, there will be draught. The hardest part of all this is understanding that time is constant. We may try to bend it, we may hope to stop it, but rest assured we can't halt it, we won't influence its pace.

This balance may not be clear at first. It may not be present at the specific time in which you search for it. Remember that for every action, there is a SEPARATE BUT EQUAL REACTION. Some call it karma. I call it balance.
 
Your life is really left to chance. A person defines there own destiny, in essence their own fate. If you continually wrong others, it will catch up to you. If you're overly giving, you will be stepped upon. I'd generate a long list of if you are this, then that scenarios but I think you get the point.

We all have our motives, our ways, and our own headings. We will not always agree. We won't always see the same things, live the same life, share similar views or find solace in the same place.

We share the same senses, the same planet, and the same set of emotions. We will experience things the same way. Our eyes will see destruction. We will taste humble pie. We will hear our shortcomings, and feel defeat. This is certain in your lifetime. On the same note we will see birth, hear praise, taste success, and feel love. This is a universal balance that all of mankind holds.

I know we all know this.... 

With that being said... How do we take the reigns back? We can all name the flaws this life holds. We know the rules to this game we are caught up in. Everyone either jockeys for position or decides to never leave the stables... We're still tied to the same track... It still goes in circles... 

Complaining... the staple...  the action that shows unrest... friction... it generates heat... but rest assured no real fire will burn... Why is this?

What keeps people bound to the playing field? Why do we decide to let life runs its course by merely falling into line? Because it's hard? Yeah... 

I'm not big on mediation or all that jazz... I don't believe in Corporate Zen... Corporate citizenship as a life model.... I don't think a namesake means anything if you've done nothing... What have you done to be any different?

When people accept all that is wrong... it becomes the only way... Thoughts are just ideas... Ideals are often wishful thinking... Life balances itself... Like the economy (in theory)... 

So big business, small business, job or career... we all make choices.. and are forced to live with it... The impact of one person's choice can lead to a revolution (Facebook and even Hitler)... A little Tea Party in Boston set in motion a revolution... but violence won't solve the all apparent yet claimed hidden truth... That greed is still at the bottom of it... Worldwide... It's human nature... So how do we jockey into position? How do we balance everything that we effect? The solution is very simple... It's you... road maps to life aren't available... sorry... it's very true...

What does it take to lead a nation? Do you know of someone that could fit the bill? Is a namesake all that it takes? Is it money, power, and public service? Isn't it funny how those are grouped together? The real problem is special interest however.... every nation is touched by this... they all chose... It provides a band-aid of sorts.. 

Sorry... way off base there... it does show that we will all have different views... and still it will most likely still end up the same...

Balance.... Energy grid shrinking... Nuclear unrest... Demand grows...

Balance.... A buck loses power... Inflation soars... Credit means nothing... 

Balance.... Governments fold.... Fighting outbreaks... Crime soars....

Balance.... Specialist are required.... Aging workforce... Retirement age increases....

Balance.... Beliefs.... Duties.... Necessity...

So many things to balance... checkbook... diet... work and home... opinions...

Life isn't easy... It takes hard work to make it... to achieve anything that seems like acceptable hegemony. I just hope that other people start to realize that decisions must be made out of necessity... that doesn't necessarily serve a special interest... but people as a whole. And lastly, not to give up on what they want to do... dreams must be kept alive... innovation has become a corporate trend.. What a novel idea... 

Again, sorry for the rants... It's been awhile...

As Always... Knock Hard... Life is Deaf...
