As I was preparing for my yoga class for this evening, I stumbled onto a book authored by Dr. Wayne Dyer "Wisdom of the Ages." I had read through this book several years ago, but it's one of those books that just keeps on giving. I opened to the page on "Balance." Hmm, I thought, this is a perfect intention for class. Why? Think about it...How many of you out there feel like you are constantly on the "Go?" No matter what you do you feel like you are two steps behind. It doesn't matter how much work you seem to get through in one day because there is always more to do.

Do you feel as if the work pile just keeps on growing with no end in sight? I'm sure most of you answered "YES" to that question. Here in lies the problem. According to Leonardo Da Vinci - Italian painter, sculpture, architect, musician, engineer, mathematician, and scientist (whew..That's sounds like a few lifetimes), being a workaholic is the opposite of being productive. Instead, this Renaissance man did the opposite. He took time to escape from daily routine and go some distance away to become more efficient and productive. It appears that highly productive people do just that. They bring a sense of harmony and balance into their lives. They are familiar with pacing and knowing when to retreat and clear their heads of immediate concerns. The key here is BALANCE.

To avoid being consumed by anything, you must be able to walk away from it. When you do this the picture becomes clearer. When you actually let go you begin to see exactly what you need to be doing and everything falls into place. When you get out of your own way the energy can flow from the "higher self" freely and divine source is readily available to you. Magically, the answers come to you and are "in spirit" or inspired.

In today's face pace world the best way to let go is to meditate. Find a quiet place where you can just sit and move your focus inward. For many the meditative practice of yoga is helpful to achieve this state of balance. You don't need to devote hours to this practice. A few minutes a day will do wonders.

May you have BALANCE today!
