Understanding of your true nature comes with a price. That price is awareness. To be aware is to tolerate a wide range of uncomfortable emotions, emotions that challenge you and your sense of balance. Balance is another way of saying “I am okay with the ebb and flow of life.” Balance is NOT a state of equality between circumstances, people or events. To know one’s true nature is to know that the balance within the ebb and flow of life is revealing as much as it is challenging. To understand that is the gem within the mountain of truth.
