A to Z and my Mind
B is for Balance
Balance is an instrument for measuring weight, we learned this fact in second grade.
In an Indian movie a poor girl points out at a Balance and challenges a king for a fair judgement as in India we also use a Balance as a symbol of justice. I asked my father about the reason behind it. He said that it is because a Balance is also a symbol of equality. Then he explained to me the fact that we use the word Balance to describe equilibrium for example when our foot loses balance we fall.
Gardeners in India say that if we play around with Balance of nature, disasters can happen. I used to get upset as they had implied that we bring disasters on ourselves. Today I read something to that effect in information about ozone layers and how to be eco friendly.
Everyday I pray that my mind does not lose Balance and I am as productive and helpful as I can be.
