A Balanced Lifestyle – The Magic in Moderation

Just take  a moment. Keep everything aside.

Hold your breath.

Take out your wallet. (Keep holding your breath)

Start counting all your money. (Keep holding your breath)

See how priceless the money becomes when you fall short of breath.

The Empty Chase, The Rat Race, its all for the currency which  means a lot more than its meant to.

That is the reason why you are willing to cheat and deceit, even yourself, in order to get rich. The biggest threat to a balanced lifestyle is this demonic urge of paper chasing.

How can you have balanced lifestyle when your life scales are always tilted towards hoarding more money to fulfill your limitless obsessions.  People want to afford cheap stuff with expensive price tags not even for themselves, but just to brag. They want to feed their starved ego and satisfy expensive tastes with garbage food in golden bags.

Its impossible to imagine a balanced lifestyle, for the ones absorbed in running the rat race. They are willing to put themselves through whatever it take in order ensure financial supremacy, or display financial security.

But when the hollow balloons of their ego pops, their entitled minds are the first to curse fate and turn to a life of misery, stress and hopelessness.

संतुलन means equilibrium or balance, it also translates to temperance which means moderation in thoughts feeling and actions. One of the most essential aspects for this modern generation of focus deprived, cell phone swipers who have imbalanced themselves to the degree of immediately running away from the same things they choose not so long ago is to learn to be more mindful, so that they can be more aware of the moment at hand any give it their complete presence rather than waiting for the next dopamine rush. As these onstant gratification ladened minds evolve the lack of attention bandwidth becomes a part of their identity, things turn to people or tasks, the modern generation is as quick in running away when the going gets even moderately tough. What temperance helps you do is to believe in the beauty of your independent being and choose mindfully what you want to think, feel and do, it helps you invest energy in more lasting endeavours, it helps you form an identity so that you can be trusted. Otherwise your habit of running away feeds off your credibility and makes you a less trusted human. So before jumping into anything lucrative, a task, a relationship or any other opportunity practice moderation and temperance so that you are in it for the long run, because that's what makes the difference, if you involve yourself in temporal pleasures you will lose trust for yourself and exist with a tarnished self esteem , full of emptiness and sorrows.

Life is not a competition of having more than neighbor, don’t work towards ego explosion, its a dynamo like trigger. which will occupy your being and deprive you of gratification, joy, bliss, happiness and inner peace. No matter how much you try to show off these aspects to the world through complicated rituals and flamboyant consumerism, these are things only you can enjoy with yourself.
