Bringing your life into balance means that you are addressing all of the key areas of your life, and you are doing this in such a way that your life can establish a stable continuity in the face of changing circumstances. When most people think of balancing their life, they are really thinking of catching up, of trying to deal with something that has been neglected. Therefore, they have to put a great deal of energy into one area of their life just to correct the problems there, to plug up the leaks, to deal with an emerging difficulty. But that does not mean that they are achieving a balance.
Many people today are very ambitious regarding spirituality and spiritual direction. They think really that they are messengers for God and that their beliefs and associations and ideals are really something bigger than they are. They insist upon this position, not understanding that God’s Messages are rarely given. They have assigned themselves to be God’s representatives, but they are not, not really, not in this way.
The New Message from God gives the individual tremendous power. It redirects your focus to the great endowment of Knowledge that the Creator of all life has placed within each person. If this Knowledge can be discovered, experienced, accepted and followed, then the individual will be able to establish a whole new foundation for living in the world. But this brings up the question of how much a person is responsible for their own experience, particularly before Knowledge can arise within them.
Your eyes and ears only perceive reality within a certain band of a greater spectrum. Your senses were created to navigate the physical world and all of its opportunities, hazards and uncertainty. Most people are engaged in the world purely on this basis, often oppressed by poverty or political oppression and the constraints of family expectations, and cultural trends and attitudes.
