Balancing opposites

Animation of frogs trying to balance each other out

Settle into the system or shake it up. Pursue happiness or devour tranquility.

Expect disruption or create your own law of contrast. Strive for greatness or let go and let God. 

Chase power or be your best self. Maximize productivity or step away from the grind.

There’s an inverse relationship between forcing something to happen and actually achieving it. When you take your foot off the gas and relax a little, that’s when things to start to open up. 

“When you try to stay on the surface of the water, you sink; but when you try to sink, you float’ and that ‘insecurity is the result of trying to be secure.”

Alan Watts
