Balancing Genius


You know what life is like. It is a continual stream- a cinema outside and a cinema inside. How many people have pulled themselves out of the cinema? When you do, that is awakening the secret creator within!

Part of this effort is becoming aware of the pendulum, when you swing from yes or no, and consider in terms of only black or white. Instead we must learn to finally say Yes AND No. True genius and creativity exists only when we can hold a view that sits directly between black and white, seeing both ends at once.

In balancing inner and outer parts of our nature we can begin to furnish ourselves with tools that make creativity natural and readily available. Often we only notice what occurs outside of our consciousness, instead of comparing it with our inner placement. Often, if we make these conscious efforts we will be confronted with the dark side of ourselves, the hidden side which when brought to light allows us more freedom and knowledge. After this step occurs real conscience can be awakened which increases our contact with the Higher.

So we start be not identifying with the opposites in ourselves, but just see the swinging pendulum which seems to move of its own volition and without our conscious involvement. As long as a person identifies with just the opposites there is no crossing the gap between the sleeping creator within and the awakened creator.

This takes time to become a Balanced Man. Many times the gap must be crossed before we begin to experience real progress in ourselves. But make your aim and never follow the line of least resistance. You must go against the mechanicalness within you. This is certainly a form of conscious labor and intentional suffering.

Nothing begins until we achieve this balance.
"People travel to wonder at the height of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars; and they pass by themselves without wondering."- St. Augustine of Hippo (354- 430) North Africa
