- Some would say “Moderation in all things.” I look at it in different way. Looking within me I find three major areas need to be kept in balance; physical wellbeing, intellect, and spirit. I have noticed over time I neglect one of these areas in pursuit of one of the others. I have neglected physical conditioning more often than the others. I seem to have a natural aversion to exercise without a specific purpose. I have an aversion to reading technical material to increase my knowledge and skill. On occasion I avoid the structured ceremony or ritual to improve my spirit. Yes, I abuse the rule, and likely will in the future. I try to keep it in perspective.
