WP November 8, 2020: Scale Pose

(Tulasana)

How do you push yourself up when you need it?
How do you move in two directions at once, while holding your ground?

How do you balance the weight of your needs? The weight of the needs
of others?

What balances the scales with grief on the one hand?
How do you tip the weight of nothingness? of the world’s hungers?
The joys?

How long of a tally do you keep?

When do you agree to wipe the slate clean and begin again
with lightness?

What balances the scales with love?

When everything settles, where will you find the center?
