Fading Existence

As the flower of the field he shall pass away. It’s petals wilt and the beauty of it’s appearance is destroyed. So too is the man in the midst of his pursuits. At the very moment everyone is looking on in admiration at it’s beautiful face it fades away to nothing



Every area of our life must be sustained by balance. We have to balance energy and rest, independence and trust, confidence and cockiness, laziness and burn out. It’s easier to put full energy into moving one way or another than to try to balance precariously on a teetering ledge. I tend to be an extremist and no matter my apodictic arguments with my own head I can’t seem to convince myself to allow moderation. Whether this stems from a bull-headed stubborness in myself or a disquiet fear that complacency will to easily overtake me I’m not sure. But I do think that balance is necessary, that I’m lacking in it, and that it is in itself something I strive more and more to find.
