Balance (3)



Once you get tired of thinking and having opinions about others, shifting here, and there. A little bit here, a little bit there. Sometimes more. Sometimes less. This way and that way. 

Consciousness or the intelligence in life will suddenly get you tired of thinking and gifts you the understanding who you and others really are. This understanding keeps you in balance in every moment of your daily life.

While you are in imperfect balance due to thinking, which is the balance for the ego, your mind will try everything in the mind to become enlightened, this thinking will keep you not in balance. 

A state of balance in enlightenment is perfectly still. No left, no right. No tilting of thoughts. Absolutely steady in every moment of thought that happens to you. Understand that by thinking, nobody can fall in love, or be enlightened.  

Understand that the unknown which is enlightenment will not happen to you while you are in the thinking process. Imperfectly balancing you in the mind. The mind will balance itself if it is meant to balance.  

Meditation techniques will tilt you to one side, and no meditation for the rest of the day will tilt you to the other side. This tilting does not keep you in balance in every moment of your daily life. 

A perfect balance harmonises you in your daily life. It lives in life. It will keep you living every moment of daily life and not thinking how to live daily life. That day will come when you are tired of thinking.  

Once when you are tired of thinking you will realize what the unknown is. What  life is and what life is not. What love is and what love is not. Understand that while you are trying to balance in life the unknown which is enlightenment will not happen to you. 

It is far from you. The truth which is enlightenment is so far away, it seems endless. You will realize, by thinking everything is logical. So safe it is. So reassuring it is. 

Understand that by logical thinking the unknown or enlightenment which is in balance will not happen to you. 

The enlightened live every moment and understand that thinking happens to them which is wisdom.
