I don’t find balance in any. Grounding has nothing to do with these. It simply is. I suppose it does have some ripple effect upon them. Grounding is about what I do with my energy, rather than try to shift or to change or to meet some outside idea of how something external of me should be.
I would ask that you please define “Grounding”. The reason I use Balance as my guide is because, as far as I can tell, every aspect of our Galaxy follows the rules of balance. Everything in our Galaxy exists in equal and opposite expressions of the same basic idea. Atoms are composed of positive and negative charges. The positive charges are stationary in the center and the negative charges spin at incredible speeds around the outside. At larger scales Balance is represented by the sun and moon, day and night, winter and summer. All things in nature exist in Balance. Except for humans. We are very unbalanced. I am not sure how important it is to be grounded. It seems to be incredibly important to be Balanced.
I am sorry, but I must disagree with your comment. First of all, I feel that all 6 of these options are balanced options. They all imply both giving and receiving love equally. I am not really sure how grounding yourself and refusing to accept that there is a Truth to the Universe that you may or may not have found yet allows you to live in love.
It seems you are coming from some sort of position of fear. Fear is the unwillingness to change because we are afraid of what that change will bring us. In fear we believe that the evil we know is better than the evil we do not know. In hope, we are able to move past fear and realize that all change is good, because all change brings us new experiences, which allows us to learn, which is always good. I live in Hope, which is why I have posted these posts in the first place. Fear is unbalanced because it causes us to avoid new things in life simply because they are new. Hope is balanced because when we truly live in hope we take our failures and turn them into lessons in order to perfect the pursuit of our goals. I hope that you will be able to understand my meaning. The Idea of Love is best expressed through Balanced Emotions. That is the one and only Truth on our planet: Earth.
If you take the time to explore all of my articles you will come to see that they all build towards this one essential Truth: The Idea of Love is best expressed through Balanced Emotions.
“…refusing to accept that there is a Truth to the Universe that you may or may not have found yet allows you to live in love….”
I have not decided anything about anything that you have said yet.
“…It seems you are coming from some sort of position of fear. Fear is the unwillingness to change because we are afraid of what that change will bring us….”
If, there, you meant to say what YOU personally think, I am puzzled about how you might have made such a leap. If you meant this as an overreaching idea, a must, that I MUST accept because it came from what YOU accept as truth, forcing me into such description is a common buzzword of late meant to shut up those who might think differently from us, I have come upon such use of false alternatives in cults, and in the young, who truly do not realize that there are more options. I might resent that, but today, that is not the case.
I am simply walking alongside of you. I am allowing you to express yourself and I am experiencing you doing so, while questioning and sending back the message that I think that I received, to be sure that we are using the same words and understandings, or differing words about the same concepts. It is widom for me, and not fear, to consider someone else’s point of view, simply to consider it. I have, in no way, moved on to accepting nor rejecting your words. I am also not intimidated by what you may choose to label me, nor in the words that you might choose. Though, they might cause me to wish to ask you more questions, so that I might get to know you better.
I found this video that discuss Ways of Thinking, it’s Feynman. http://youtu.be/Cj4y0EUlU-Y
I truly wish to understand your expressions of yourself, without coloring them or having you color them for me. My questions, are for being certain that I have understood what you meant to express and are not from a lack of my own knowledge or wisdom. I have a way of being very direct and/or blunt when I do not comprehend a thing, or when I require help. I hope this has assisted you now in better understanding intent.
I’m frowning and puzzling a bit now. I wonder if I have missed your intent that you wrote for those who would come only to smile and to read and to swallow what you have said, as if God had said the words. I’m not built that way. However, I do not wish to create discord, I had wished discourse.
Wish you well!
“I am not really sure how grounding yourself and refusing to accept that there is a Truth to the Universe that you may or may not have found yet allows you to live in love.”
You forgot the first part of my quote, and this changes its meaning quite a bit. Not very fair…
I was not intending to insult you in any way. When I say that you are coming from a position of fear, it is because I have defined fear on my blog as; “It would seem that what we fear most is change whose outcome we are unable to predict. Since most fears in life can be reduced to a basic fear of the unknown, this leads us to avoid change. Or at least, to monitor change in a very distrustful way.” (see my post on Hope)
You said “Grounding is about what I do with my energy, rather than try to shift or to change or to meet some outside idea of how something external of me should be.” Which to me sounds like an unwillingness to change, aka Fear.
I have also defined Balance. (see my post on Balance)
I asked you to define Grounding, but you have yet to do so.
It is hard for me to respond to you when I do not know what Grounding means to you. It is also hard for one of my posts to make sense standing alone. If you feel that what I am saying is not making sense, perhaps you need to read all of my posts. They all go together and follow one stream of thought.
The best place to find my posts in the order in which they were meant to be read is on my website.
Please visit http://www.alternate-economy.com/musings/musings.htm and start at the beginning with the post Balance.
I am not claiming to be God. I have never once said on my blog that my Truth is the absolute Truth. I have said many times that I want to create a discussion. A discussion does not mean that people will always agree. Just because I do not agree that grounding is as important as balance does not mean that I think that I am God.
If you can prove to me that Grounding is as important as balance, by defining it with examples, as I have done with balance, then I will be willing to change my opinion. As of yet, you have not convinced me you are right.
Please don’t think that I am in any way upset that you are challenging me or my ideas. I welcome your challenge, because I am confiednt that my presentation is solid. If you can show me through a solid example that I have forgotten to include Grounding, I will adapt my presentation in order to include it. But I need to be 100% convinced first. Please, I challenge you to convince me. If you feel grounding is important, then prove it to me.
