I was asked again what it is that one can balance with Balancing Act – an experiential session that was designed for the Consultants Camp/eXtreme Programming/Agile conferences? My reply has been “Our brainhalves for wholebrainedness”. That’s rather short.
With some thought, this is a longer answer: If we can only perceive with our rational mind, we lack connection with our other brain half. Meaning, we lack a holistic way of seeing things. We can’t see all around us, and most often, we can not hear what is not being said either. And if we do see and hear, we are likely to say to our selves its mere “phantoms” or “internal babble” and “irrelevant”, regardless of source, self or others.
In this state we can easily fall prey to intellectual arrogance where we only accept those things our mind can comprehend, that can be shown, and be proven “to be according to theory”. We see spiritual insight as unscientific and reject the spiritual.
Checking our giving/receiving, inner/outer richness, separation/(w)holeness, and expression freedoms/tonality balances likely give us clues for (re)perceiving “reality” and balancing our act more congruently.
