“Balance equals the ability to live through whatever happens without chasing something along the way. To achieve balance in your life you must stay in the center of the path. Don’t go to the right or to the left. Watch both ways, but don’t allocate any of your energy in one specific direction – that is; don’t be ‘for’ or ‘against’ something. Being ‘for’ or ‘against’ – right or left – means that you are now invested and have polarized yourself and your life – losing your objectivity.
People become addicted to their beliefs and chasing those beliefs, concepts and ideals and end up trapping themselves. They get to the point where they can’t escape their biases and prejudices. Their concepts and ideas of ‘how life should be’ control their every thought and action. Don’t spend energy chasing anything. Allow it to come to you. For example: if you chase a puppy around the house you will never catch it; but if you sit in the middle of the room on the floor the puppy will walk right up to you.”
