In 1978 I heard a speaker boldly claim that if there is any
Universal Law it is the Law of Balance. Since then I have
bounced back and forth between trying to disprove that claim and
recognizing its truth in ever expanding applications. As we watch
our scientific physical "laws" being dis-proven or qualified
over the course of time, it becomes apparent that we don't know as much
about Universal Law as we once believed.
We often speak of balance as a state to be maintained. The
inference is that we can also fail to achieve or maintain
However, I invite you to consider that Balance could possibly be an
ever-present aspect of Universal Law. If it is, then balance is not
achievable nor maintainable. It simply IS the state of all that is
experienced in this Universe. If that is true, then we have some
work to do in order to become conscious of the balance functioning in
our everyday experiences.
If there is a Universal Law of Balance it doesn't cease to operate
simply because we name an event or person "imbalanced" or
"out of balance."
Perhaps Balance doesn't need to be created but rather needs to be
recognized. To do so we must let go of some of our old beliefs and
allow new ones to take form. Harmony is simply another expression of
Consider opening your awareness to the possibility that Harmony
(Balance) exists beyond our awareness wherever and whenever we believe we
are experiencing disharmony or imbalance. Consider also that
bringing that Balance into our awareness is only a matter of choosing to
Another ripple resulting from this concept of Universal Balance is that
if we change one area of our experience, there will be an automatic change
in another or perhaps several other areas of our experience.
Those other areas that change automatically may not necessarily appear
to be related to the original change. They may feel very far removed
from our conscious choices. In fact, they may feel completely
disconnected from our control when in fact they could be the direct result
of our choices triggering the Universal Law of Balance.
I suspect more strongly every day that there is actually NOTHING
happening in my experience that is caused outside of my own choices.
Wishing you a joyful and fulfilling understanding of Universal Balance.
