Balance Amid Deadlines.


When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.


Dear Deepak, When I ran my own business I meditated every day and had a sense of well-being. I have returned to school and because deadlines I have felt I need to succumb to coffee and pushing through exhaustion to complete deadlines. Is this part of life too, where balance is not ALWAYS possible, in your opinion? I am using prayer and meditation to do school work which does rejuvenate me at times but I do find I use coffee… Can you get to a place where you ONLY do exactly what you want when you want it? or is this unrealistic?


What constitutes a healthy balance of well-being in one’s life will vary from person to the next, and even vary in the life of one person at different times in their life and in the different roles that they play. Just as the body can find a different kind of balance or homeostasis when it is asleep, sitting or walking down the street The balance you seek back in school will likely be different than the balance you had with your own business. That’s okay. And if you drink a couple of cups of coffee here and there, it’s not the end of the world. If you have lots of deadlines for school projects and papers, it will probably mean you will need to exercise more time management in order for you to get the right balance of rest, exercise and meditation in your day.

    Anyone with any sense spends their time doing what they enjoy doing. However, I also think many of us lack imagination in discover the things we really want to do. If I were to ask many of my friends who are in their early twenties what they`d like to do if they could spend their time doing what they would truly enjoy, many would respond with; "sleep", "watch tv", or "play video games." But these answers, at least to me, seem to be more of a product of a desire to escape their lives in which they spend most of their time working jobs they hate, or studying for exams where they don`t feel they`re actually learning. And when I really dig deep to discover their passions, we find that what they really would like to spend their time doing would be to write, compose music, be a physician, etc... If we discover what it is we truly want to do and enjoy doing, we can accomplish wondrous things if we have the dedication and (sometimes) willingness to make sacrifice of comforts in order to be successful.
