How Can We Expect Our World to Have Balance When Most People Aren't Living Balanced Lives?

It occurred to me while watching the news that our environment is off balance. The climate seems to be all over the place (global warming), violence is everywhere and our societal priorities are mixed up. I realize that I may be overgeneralizing, but as I thought more about it, it all seemed to make sense in terms of how the vast majority of us (the world's largest group of inhabitants) live our lives. 

How can the world find balance if the people responsible for it are not living balanced lives? Furthermore, if we are off balance, then doesn't it seem possible that the energy we are putting out into the environment will be off balance as well, perpetuating an imbalanced environment?

Unfortunately, I do not have a magic wand that I can wave to suddenly create balance and harmony. What I can offer are three tips on how to foster balance in your own life:

  1. Identify what is or what feels off balance in your life/environment.
  2. Take responsibility for the things you can control and change while letting go of what you cannot control. 
  3. Prioritize areas of your life that get little to no attention.

Notice the connection between yourself and your environment.
