Dynamic Tension! Not “Balance”

I agree with this quote, if you understand that balance is the same as paralysis, because all is at stasis, and nothing moves.

Think about it:  when you walk, when you bike, when you do most anything you place yourself in dynamic tension with being off balance and some sort of motion or momentum or direction.

Right?

Balance has a practical connotation, which means “don’t fall over” or don’t crash and burn”…but the culprit is not “lack of balance” (for balance is actually an illusion)…

The culprit is loss of direction!  And thus one falls over.  Remember!  The right leg must follow the left…the arms must swing in harmonious yet dynamic tension…and the mind must be fixed on the goal, the prize so that the will can empower the legs to move, the arms to swing.

And now for the quote:

Life is about balance. Be kind, but don’t let people abuse you. Trust, but don’t be deceived. Be content, but never stop improving yourself.

So how about this instead:

Life is about dynamic tension. Be kind, but don’t let people abuse you. Trust, but don’t be deceived. Be content, but never stop improving yourself.
