Sometimes it seems like our dreams will always remain just out of reach—they seem so close that we can almost touch them, feel them, taste them, but for some reason it always falls through.
If you’re working on putting your leg behind your head, you may feel you make steady progress only to get injured. If you’re saving money to travel the world or own your own home or start a new business, it may feel like a sudden emergency always eats your savings.
While it may seem like some people have it all but make no mistake—they put in countless hours of hard work. But there is a kind of a magic balance between dogged persistence and open receptivity.
For those who work the hardest sometimes the only missing element of success is relaxing and letting it all fall into place. For the most optimistic dreamers sometimes the missing element is accepting how much effort it will take to make something real.
The key is to find the sweet spot of balance between too much and too little effort. Find the place where you work hard and remain open to receiving. This balancing act is itself the spiritual path.
To walk the path of your life with balance, strength and grace is itself the goal.
