Prompt ~ Balance

Balance in the physical context is related to gravity. The center of gravity (cog) is that point where the weight of the body is chiefly concentrated. This is normally at the upper third of the sacrum during the normal standing position.The human body is most stable when the cog is at its lowest (nearest to earth surface).
A person supine on floor with the cog at lowest point is physically very stable, yet mentally and/ or spiritually may be very unstable. This is because of the sense of “ I am” (ego) is not in balance. Akin to the force of gravity, the ego is essential; and just like the cog it is most stable if kept at its lowest ( ~ in tune with our inner capabilities).
Finally, the wider the base of support – the easier it is to maintain balance (both for cog as well as ego).
Truly wise refrain
from extremes to lead a life
