The Morning Blessing: Balance is the Key to Life

The teaching of balance infiltrates all creation. This become obvious when mindfully observing the activities of creation and creatures as they instinctually follow the rhythm of their existence. The most distinguishing feature of the human being is consciousness, which gives rise to self-awareness and a self-directing will. As spiritual, mental and physical beings, we reveal the three-fold nature of God residing in perfect repose within the soul. A human incarnation is precious. Yet, to extract this preciousness from our human walk requires that we balance all aspects of our being and doing.

If you see yourself as a spiritual being but do not respect other aspects of your nature, imbalance will show up in your life. For example, if  you see yourself as a planetary citizen responsible for saving the Rain Forest, you may contribute greatly to this process while angrily protesting pharmaceutical companies. If you concentrate primarily on prayer and meditation while ignoring serving others in this world, you become self-centered and retard your spiritual development. 

Your perspective must lovingly expand to make room for every dimension of yourself to express and flourish.  As each one of us takes responsibility to balance our earth walk, so society balances itself. The first strategy is to begin to appreciate everything that calls you to prayer. Each experience comes to us that we may rise to meet the need of the moment with God in our consciousness. Secondly, practice detachment from your current perspectives about life - it all changes anyway! This allows the spaciousness required for expansion and transformation. Thirdly, make room in your heart for yourself, remembering that you can only accept and give to others to the degree that you experience self-acceptance and self-givingness. Lastly, lose yourself in selfless service to all whom you meet, freely giving the Divine Love that infiltrates your heart to all.

Blessing:

The "single stuff" of the Universe is God, It is all there is.
This spiritual quotient is the reality that moves through, within,
and around me as a "piece of God." It's the reason I work! Not
the objection for why I shouldn't.
 
Because I am part of an unlimited spiritual resource system I call
into place the activation of that internal grid system that brings
balance to all my thoughts, words, and deeds. I move forward with
a clear intention to always see what's going on and if I am not
operating from a foundation of balance I allow Universal Council
to defer all experiences and perceptions to a level of highest good.
With everything in my life evolving for  my highest good, I integrate
more efficiently. I have more power, more juice to bump out the
underpinning beliefs that trap God's truest sense of balance and
expression.
 
This is the basis of my spiritual questing, and so it is with a
benevolent heart and easy-flowing waves of gratitude that I
send this prayer into the One Mind knowing it now demonstrates
in my life. And so it is.
