BETWEEN HOLDING ON AND LETTING GO

SOMETIMES SUCCEEDING, SOMETIMES FAILING, BUT ALWAYS TRYING NOT TO GIVE UP

Ashok SILWAL

Equilibrium, balance,
The term refers in the field of physics
And dwelling on a definition in physical terms,
The meaning of balance is the following:
“Condition of a body which, in a physical system,
Remains immobile because it is stressed
By equal and opposite forces.”
Is it so different when referred in the field
Of psychology, of moral, of human behavior?
What a balanced person suggests?
Moderation, harmony, tranquility, wisdom..
Balance is that state that gives you inner peace,
That makes you feel good.

“All life is a question of balance, said Buddha,
Be kind but don’t let yourself be exploited,
Trust but don’t be fooled,
Be satisfied but never stop improving yourself.”

Yes….. Each of us
Is made up of opposites and contrasts,
In the constant search for balance and harmony.
Each of us
Is light but also dark,
Is adult but also child,
Is wise but also immature,
Is teacher but also student.
Each of us
Is brave but also fearful,
Is frivolous but also responsible,
Is himself but also others,
Is learned but also ignorant.
Each of us
Is strong but also breakable,
Is superficial but also profound,
Is playful but also serious.
Each of us,
Is an infinite mystery
Incessantly looking for
This fragile and delicate balance
That makes him feel good about himself
With a sense of measure and inner peace;

Because a balanced person
Tends to be comfortable with herself and with others
Even if he is also fine on his own.
He manages to take hold of his emotions.
He is patient,
He is capable of questioning himself
And admitting he was wrong,
He does not renounce to change his mind
Because he knows that intelligence is also adapting.
He prefers to answer than to react.
He likes to stop and think
In a deep breath to regain lucidity.
He respects those who have different opinions,
He knows how to accept himself for good and for bad,
In sadness, in anger, in fear,
In joy, in serenity, in courage.

The balanced person manages to devote time
To his own person,
Despite the daily train-train,
He manages to dedicate time to himself,
To what he loves to do
And what makes him feel good.
Often, he has a creative mind;
He values gratitude and has the humility to give thanks.
He should have a regular life
Because he knows that
The emotional equilibrium goes hand in hand
With physical balance.

This is how I imagine a balanced person.
This is how I would like to be
Probably like many of us……..
This is how, aware of my defects and of my qualities,
I try hard to find my inner balance,
Sometimes succeeding,
Sometimes failing…
But believing it
And always trying not to give up……

BALANCE IS NOT SOMETHING YOU FIND,
IT’S SOMETHING YOU CREATE
BETWEEN HOLDING ON AND LETTING GO.
