Living in Balance (Pt. 5 of 5)

“Love is within us. It cannot be destroyed…. Denying love is our only problem, and embracing it is the only answer.”

~ Ernest Holmes

“Under Pressure" (Queen & David Bowie)

Mmm num ba de Dum bum ba be Doo buh dum ba beh beh


Pressure: pushing down on me Pressing down on you, no man ask for Under pressure that burns a building down Splits a family in two Puts people on streets


Um ba ba be Um ba ba be De day da Ee day da


That's OK That's the terror of knowing What this world is about Watching some good friends screaming "Let me out!"


Tomorrow gets me higher Pressure on people, people on streets


Day day de mm hm Da da da ba ba OK


Chippin' around, kick my brains 'round the floor These are the days: it never rains but it pours


Ee do ba be Ee da ba ba ba Um bo bo Be lap


People on streets Ee da de da de People on streets Ee da de da de da de da


It's the terror of knowing What this world is about Watching some good friends screaming "Let me out!"


Tomorrow gets me higher, higher, high! Pressure on people, people on streets


Turned away from it all like a blind man Sat on a fence, but it don't work Keep coming up with love, but it's so slashed and torn

Why, why, why!? Love, love, love, love, love

Insanity laughs under pressure We're breaking Can't we give ourselves one more chance? Why can't we give love that one more chance? Why can't we give love, give love, give love, give love, give love, give love, give love, give love, give love?


'Cause love's such an old-fashioned word And love dares you to care for the people on the edge of the night And love dares you to change our way of caring about ourselves This is our last dance This is our last dance This is ourselves

So the answer is love.


How can you express love in greater ways with others in your life this week? Try it, ask yourself every morning, “How might I express greater love today?”


What loving action might you give to yourself today?

~ After asking yourself, “How might I express greater love today?”, meditate on that question.


~ Journal your results every day for seven days


~ At the end of the week, review your memoir. What have you learned? Were you able to stay in a state of expanded love for the whole week?


~ What loving actions did you give yourself each day, and how did that up-level your experience?
