The Cliché of BalanceWritten by Amyn Lalji
Continued from page 1
Balance is not a public affair. It does not reside in public domain. It is a very personal and intimate aspect of each and every one of us. The best thing is we all know about it, we know how to achieve it in our lives as well. We have an understanding about it but what we really lack is will to apply it in our lives. Upon closer look balance is nothing but a life, which is honest when it comes to relationships. It means living a life that integrates need of our body, heart, mind and soul both at personal and public levels. It also means to have a harmony between polarities that exist within us. Mind you, we cannot go away with polarities, they are bound to exist in our lives. The bad will always exist with good, positive will always exist with negative. However, balance makes it possible to have existence of these polarities in such a way that we tend to benefit from them.
Above all, balance is not a static condition. On contrary it is a process that must be looked and re looked daily to make it a reality. And when that happens it will again gain its lost importance that made it a Cliché.

"Happiness"Written by Bob Curtis
Continued from page 1
Real passion does not happen over night. Real passion is not a destination. It is a journey. A journey one cannot follow, with any degree of true satisfaction, if they are on path alone. Real passion was meant to be a shared journey. Give a simple “I Love You”. Don’t assume they know it. SAY IT. OFTEN. Now, don’t kid yourself. All relationships are a continual “work-in-progress”. There are ups and downs. The good times and not-so-good. We must decide, for ourselves, that we are in this for duration. Look for and give “glance across room” to your partner. Give them a kiss in twilight. Take a casual walk together in cool of afternoon, “just because”. Brush fingertips of your hand across their shoulders or down their arm as you are talking to them or as you pass them by, whether in private, or public. Give them your smile; your warm, radiant, and sincere smile. These will all repay you immeasurably...and often!
