Life in Balance ~ 17th Karmapa

When we bring our concern for ourselves into harmony with our concern for others, our life comes in balance. When our life feels imbalanced and pointless, usually we notice that our relationships have also become unhealthy. By thinking carefully about how we orient ourselves toward others and toward ourselves, we can build and enjoy healthy relationships. We can learn to cultivate relationships that are warm and truly meaningful.
