Success in the Balance

Monday, January 29, 2018 Life In Balance  No comments

It doesn’t matter what body you are born into, male or female. Sex has nothing to do with success or happiness. So, whether you are male or female, the balance of the masculine and the feminine energy within you is a key ingredient to holistic success.

A cultural meme has existed for many years that creates either a feminine or masculine definition of success. Consequently we have an old locked in paradigm that the only definition of success is an achievement in measurable, material terms. This measure has caused an infatuation with the future, and a resentment of the NOW. (Resentment may also refer to disregard or lack of appreciation.)

Then, there’s a whole revolutionary group who are obsessed with the feminine side (happiness in the NOW) who have become resentful of the masculine (Goals...

There is a sense of tragedy in that assertion. The strong aren’t necessarily the best choice to preserve this world. Survivors have the uncanny obsession with only looking out for themselves. They will only allow others to follow as long as those who do stay out of the way and don’t become a burden...

Thursday, January 11, 2018 Life In Balance  No comments

There is a saying among the Sufi mystics: “In the olden days, ‘Sufi’ as a term did not exist, but people lived the Sufi message. Now, the term ‘Sufi’ exists – but no one lives the message.”

The indigenous trinity of Bali and the Indonesian archipelago is called Trimurti – “Three Forms...
