"Ẹyẹ kò lè fi apá kan fò. " Birds can't fly with one wing. Flying, like walking, drumming or family-building, requires balance. Here's the catch: balance is the byproduct of opposition, tension and constant change. Many times, I see you struggle to achieve and sustain balance because you want it to "just be still," but that doesn't happen for long. When I observe nature, I see how the various elements of an ecosystem are in perpetual change. The animals, plants, rivers and even sunlight are continuously shifting. In spite of that fact, the forest, the ocean and the meadow all maintain perfect balance, decade after decade. And so, I pray that you will embrace the tension and short term uncertainty as a necessary part of achieving overall balance. May you be blessed with enough patience to not only endure, but to soar high above it all. Ase!
