The mystery of life is not a problem to be solved but a reality to be experienced. - Aart Van Der Leeuw

Balance should be one of the most important words in your life. Strive to maintain a balance with everything, whether it be your exercising, your job, your family, your religion, keep it all in balance.

How many people do you know that their job or career becomes their life? These people identify themselves with their job. They may feel needed there or are insecure about the safety of their job, or need to get ahead to feed their ego. They will miss many experiences. By focusing on their jobs to such excess they will fail to experience the depth of the sunshine on their bodies, or the flowers they may pass.

Some people get wrapped up in their families, shutting out all other experiences in their lives. They may miss many opportunities to open up their world as a result.

You get the idea. Step back often and evaluate what you're doing. Ask if you are doing all the things you want to do in your life. How do you spend your time every day? Are you spending time on the things that are important to you or is someone or something else whipsawing you around?
