Losing Balance? Have we tighten up so much that there is no give? Should we loosen things up?
If we are talking about a piece of furniture, no! The bolts need to be tighten just right to keep the furniture together so it doesn't fall apart or tip over. If we have them too loose in a chair, then the chair could fall apart with us in it. If the legs of a table are wobbly, then it too can come crashing down, shattering some of our most precious items with it.
If we over tighten then we can crack the object... if we are the object that's to loose we can fall, or come crashing down. If we are tighten up to tight in a situation, then we can crack our vessel, our body, and our health. Balance is the Key.
I recently bought some new furniture for our home and as we put a few things together, I realized that the tightening of the bolts was very important... there had to be a balance in what I was doing.
So, a healthy balance in all we do is important. Loosen up to much, not good, to tight is not good either. Balance is good, healthy, and wise. Balance is the key to enjoy all things!

If I'm losing balance in a pose, I stretch higher and God reaches down to steady me. It works every time, and not just in yoga. ~Terri Guillemets
