One of the primary goals of balance training is to help us recognize and act in tune with existing natural laws and not get caught up in their expressions. Natural laws just like components of an experience are always fewer than their expressions.
Individuals could have infinitely diverged experiences in life. However, the building blocks of each experience is not as varied. Understanding and working with the few components of one experience allows you to influence, modify or completely change that experience and other similar experiences.
Understanding the nature of a training program including balance training helps us recognize it within its various forms.
Losing our mental balance through attachments, losing our emotional balance and control through impatience and losing physical control through muscular imbalances are all part of the same balance training program.
When we see the different experiences are part of the same training, we can then focus on the training itself regardless of how it appears.
Building blocks of experience are the water that connects different pools together. Each pool acts a container changing how it holds the water.
Changing the shape of the container does not change the nature of water it contains.
Understanding the nature of water, in this example, help us understand the containers. If we focus too much on the container, we lose the ability to see similarities that exist in all containers of waters.
What happens if we forget the qualities of water and focus on the shape of the container?
Water penetrates through the container and damages what is around it. It dissolves the material of the container and carries it with itself. It evaporates and leaves an empty container behind.
Even the tiniest experiences have spiritual, mental, causal, emotional and physical aspects to them. These the building blocks of experiences.
Balance training is one of the primary threads that run through how an experience evolves and where it leads.
