The Middle Way

Lately I have been in several situations where I am torn in two different directions.   It seems I am torn apart in different directions between two things that I feel strongly about and have to walk a very narrow path to keep from being pulled off towards one influence or the other.

I’m not sure what the lesson is or what is going on with this.  It does seem trying to be true to who I am requires a great deal of balance right now.    How often to we realize what a balancing act it is for us to hold two conflicting ideas or have different opinions in different situations?  How often do we get to see the beauty and the ugliness of any situation we are in with equal clarity?

It is tiring to have to stand between to equally strong pulls.   I can’t wait until it ends. I don’t know exactly what the lesson it, but at this time I am trying to observe how things keep coming together and what I notice as I see things in clarity.
