Introduction To The Five Pillars of BalanceAdeshola Ezeokoli
From this statement come the concept of balance, balanced living and the five pillars of balance. Like the fingers on each hand the five pillars represent core aspects of YOU, that if not taken care of can lead to an unfulfilled life, broken dreams and heartbreak. The five pillars of balance are the foundation of your very self and being. They are as follows:
Your spiritual life essentially talks about your relationship with God and this affects how you see the world. It talks about your religion, spirituality and beliefs about things unseen. Your spiritual state and beliefs about it affect your worldview on many different levels. A healthy spiritual states will always lead you back to love and the golden rule: Treat others the way you want to be treated because there is a God watching over us and I am expected to do right by you.
Your emotional well being is very important because potentially all of the issues related to your life, flow from your emotional state, good or bad. Emotions are good servants but tyrannical masters. It is the self-control and mastery of your emotions that will give you the upper hand in managing your thought life. You are not your feelings, your feelings come from you, and you have a lot more control over them that you think you do!
Your mental and emotional wellbeing are somewhat intertwined. Your thoughts and feelings sometimes go hand in hand and feed off of each other. It is important to do your best to keep yourself in a resourceful state of mind, that serves God, serves you, and serves your purpose to the world. Read books. Disbelieve disempowering narratives. Become a thinker. Question everything. Do not feed negative thoughts and emotions.
If you do not take care of your body, it will not take care of you. Be sure to take care of the basics, like the right foods, rest, exercise and taking care of health problems, the moment they arise. There are temptations all around to succumb to an unhealthy lifestyle but with mental fortitude and a can-do attitude, you can resist them.
How you relate to others is important. How you relate to your spouse, your children, your parents your friends is important if you are going to have peace in your life. Do you know, for instance, who your real friends are? Do you know what an acquaintance is? Do you know the difference between the two? Who are your supporters? Who are your detractors? What relationships should you nurture? What relationships have passed their expiry date?
