Harmony in Endurance

WEEK 4: Enjoying Our Predestined Victory(by sharing)!

Day 24, April 27-28, 2015     {Psalm 11:1-7}
Today is the energy of Compassion in Endurance. If someone upsets you today, call them after the fact and listen to them. Once you understand their life and situation, do you still feel the same about them? Understanding someone’s situation is a key to achieving compassion.

~Karen Berg

It’s hard to keep going when we are out of balance.  At this morning’s exercise class, we were using ’stability balls’, large, bouncy balls we sit on while doing crunches, weights and stretches.  I thought about how essential it was to keep in balance to stay on the ball.  Today, we can think of being ‘on the ball’ in a metaphorical sense.  When we are pursuing a goal, whether long term or short, we need to keep ‘all the balls in the air’ and be ‘in the ball game’.  While I’m not usually a fan of sports metaphors, keeping the ‘harmony of the spheres’ in mind makes sense as a way to keep the world ‘going ’round’!

May the harmonious interplay of all of life’s complexities help us all endure the challenges we see around us, the ones we know we will face in the next 24 hours, and the surprises which will, inevitably, come into our life path.
