High Strung

There is a tendency for many of us to be high strung. Balancing alertness with relaxation is important in meditation, as in life. Being high strung impedes this balance, creating an environment of stress and clinging. Being too lazy also impedes this balance, becoming unaware and letting reality slip away completely. Realizing reality requires this balance, a middle way. Too tight and we grasp at a fixed world and ego existing on their own. Too loose and we deny the world. Finding the right balance is crucial to deconstructing the ego, which in reality never existed! Emaho! ~ Barry Kerzin
