On the resolution of balance #5:
Reading a paper recently made me realise how integral to our understanding of reality, is balance. The paper refers to the “circular interrelation between narrative, emotion, and cultural meaning”. This circularity is what we are struggling to balance and it needs constant adjustment and attention to resolve. The metaphor that fits is that of walking a tightrope: the rope is linear time between birth and death and life, our stories; culture is what we pick up as we go; and emotions are what we juggle as we journey. Without continuity and balance, we fall.
