A gyroscope lives from its center. A thermostat regulates the temperature. A human balances the contradictions at work in their life, maintaining harmony, sustaining the flow. Equanimity. Homeostasis. Equilibrium. Stabilize the forces at work in the moment, and provide an environment that is conducive to life and the true good of all concerned. We are balancing agents, making wherever we are a better place to be by the way we see what's what and do what needs to be done about it, one situation at a time.
We have to find our way through the wasteland through the wilderness to the Grail Castle and the chance to ask the right question to break the curse and restore the kingdom, putting everything back in place, and making all things well. What is the right question? What is the problem? What ails thee? What needs fixing here, now? What needs to be done? What needs me to do it? Here? Now? Knowing what the problem is and being right about it enables us to know what needs to be done and do it, when it needs to be done, where it needs to be done, how it needs to be done, whether we want to or not, whether we are in the mood for it or not, whether we feel like it or not, for no other reason than it needs to be done, and we need to do it properly, correctly, whether we know it or not, whether we care about it or not, for the simple joy of doing it and the satisfaction of having done it. no matter what. If we get that down, we will transform the world. And become the Grail we seek. The source of blessings and grace upon all sentient beings. Everything waits for that. What are we waiting for?
The blocks to living aligned with our original nature are fear (And its spinoffs, anger and hatred), desire (And its spinoffs, greed, jealously, possessiveness, etc.), duty (And its obsession with Thou Shalt and Thou Shalt Not, should-ought-must, etc.), and laziness/lethargy/negligence. We just have get up and do what needs to be done with the gifts of our original nature that came with us from the womb-- in each situation as it arises-- whether we feel like it or not. It is every person's obligation to themselves, to every other person and to all living things.
