Inner Balance

Centredness is essential for spiritual ascent. Being in a state of balance: neither in the future nor the past, neither planning nor regretting, neither overactive nor lethargic.

According to fluid dynamics, at the centre of the stream the current is greatest. It is there that we are free of the snags and friction of the river banks, and we are carried along effortlessly.

Shri Mahalakshmi is the aspect of the Divine who gives us balance and gives us our ascent through the central channel of the inner subtle system. She resides at the centre of this subtle system, in the Nabhi (navel) Chakra, the colour of which is green, a balance of yellow and blue, the colours of the right and left channels respectively.
