An Ambiguous Balancing Act

 

AABA
The perfect alignment of your favourite wall piece. The right tinge of colour on an artist’s palette. Just two spoonfuls of sugar – not more, not less – in your morning cup of tea. Equal amount of weight on both trays of the weigh scale. The right length of a blog post – neither too lengthy, nor too short. Everything from the smallest of anecdotes to the largest of philosophies revolves around one ideology – balance.

Yang and Yin; Ma’at and Isfet; God and Satan. Spirituality has always, in one way or the other emphasized the importance of balance.
