I am struck by geometry and the grid shapes are arranged into, especially in architecture. Looking at aerial views of city blocks based on a grid pattern, I wonder, if we are organized into a grid physically, how does this affect us mentally? Buildings are a collection of separate pieces fit together neatly into a large rectangle (double squares), which create a harmony and balance inside the composition. Does this repetitive vision create harmony and balance in the mind? Are we, like the grids we create, individual expressions of a larger whole, a divine being, unique but still one?
Health is a balance of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. A balance of joy and sadness, happiness and anger, calm and distraction, solitude and commune. Balance is not the exact middle - that would be perfection. There is always movement, shifting; we are not statues. So why be so rigid?
The more we understand our responses and reactions to each other and to circumstances the more we can live in harmony and balance.
We can only know our Self in relationship to the Other or our environment (dividualism), the same way we can only know joy if we know suffering; lightness if we've experience the dark.
