The greedy salesman, desperately trying to regain losses, tries hard to regain control.
Thinking of ways to get back up he chooses the easy way, the one without honour, the desperate manipulative action.
Grabbing hold of the pendulum, trying to cheat his way into prosperity, stealing from honest and trustful people . But as the weight increases and whilst he is grabbing onto that pendulum, trying to force a balance on the scale that is unnatural he does not see the rick, the slingshot momentum that is being created.
The pressure became too much, that strong hold, that action trying to regain balance and control has swung into unthinkable depths, as the pendulum gave way and swung to its deepest opposite direction.
In life we sometimes try hard to regain control, balance. We focus on making things work and by doing so all our attention goes just into small details. Details that we think are responsible for regaining that balance and keeping it.
Neglecting other important matters of life we keep going, because once there were these small changes that we needed to do, small adaptations to our daily routine that were needed there and then in order to get back on track.
However balance is about letting the pendulum go. Releasing the pendulum and having faith. To see and to hear, to feel and to express is all there is needed to be in balance.
Sometimes it might swing left and sometimes it might swing right, that is the nature of life. Life´s balance is about living everyday, felling and sensing, expressing and absorbing…
Don´t cling onto the pendulum, grabbing it and trying to force it into balance. When one takes such actions he might risk an uneven pressure build, creating a momentum that once it becomes so strong that it breaks the balance, it is so strong that it will take twice the effort to dissipate come to a standstill.
