eScale – Scale of Extremes
Our life is always moving on scale of extremes from one end to the other end. Scale may be related to love relationship, work, money, fame, knowledge, performance, spirituality, skills, and our nature or for that matter anything. The scale is normally in the inclined position where good things are on the higher side and bad things are on the lower side. It is always little difficult to move up towards the good things but easy to slide down towards the bad things.
It may be necessary to be at the right position towards the most positive end always. Sometimes staying at the neutral position or little more towards positive side is enough. More important is to make sure that we do not slide towards negativity or do not stay on negative side for a long. The right position on scale is decided taking into consideration the people, time and situation. For example take the scale of hate to love which has different points in between such as dislike, neutral and like. It is not possible to love everybody in life but it is important that we do not hate or dislike anyone. Another example can be the scale of money. Where at one end there is an extreme poverty and at other end there is an extreme affluence. Your journey shall always be towards becoming rich/better than what you are today. You may not necessarily become the richest person on earth but it is important to have enough money to take care of worldly needs and live a comfortable life.
Important is to understand the scale of extremes about every aspect, to know where you stand on this scale, to decide your reasonable goal on the scale and move towards achieving that goal.
