Balance does not mean merely balancing the body. Balance in the body is the foundation for balance in life. In whatever position one is in, or in whatever condition in life one is placed, one must find balance. Balance is the state of the present - the here and now. ~B.K.S. Iyengar

What an exciting quote, this is Getzapped.:-)
I love the thought of balance in a life.
And how about balance in the thought and in one's spirit?
All lovely, isn't it. :-)

Funny, I just finished a painting called "Finding Balance." I'm having a hard time taking care of myself lately because I'm so completely out of balance at this time. Too many distractions. That's why I like coming here...for the gentle reminders. Thank you Michelle!

Lyrically speaking said...

we all need this sort of balance in our lives, I admire the generous quotes you provide to us :)

God, created the world and the Universe in balance .. let's take the human body .. two hands, two legs, two eyes .. everything is in balance.

Hello Get Zapped,

Very good quote by B.K.S Iyengar...thank you for sharing. You have very interesting blog with lovely pictures...I am new to this place wanted to say hi...

Meditation involves concentrating the mind on subject of thought without any distractions.

The methods used in the practice of Buddhism are called Buddhist meditation.

Buddhists identify meditation with mental growth. In meditation, one uses object to concentrate and direct their attention.

The object may be breathing sensations, physical sensations of the body, visual images or sounds.
