Here is a selection of quotes by well-known, lesser-known, or unknown people who have nailed to describe it beautifully what balance meant to them:

Balance means making choices and enjoying those choices.  Betsy Jacobson

So divinely is the world organized that every one of us, in our place and time, is in balance with everything else.  Goethe

Existence is paradoxical; paradox is its very core. It exists through opposites, it is a balance in the opposites. And one who learns how to balance becomes capable of knowing what life is, what existence is, what (creation, or) God is.  Osho

Here is an invitation to take 10 slow long deep breath and while inhaling think 'I am centered, I am balanced, I am at peace', and while exhaling think 'I let go of all tension' or if that’s too long, choose just one sentence for the inhale like ‘I am in balance’ and you could vary the sentence for the exhale to suit your needs best, e.g. ‘I let go of all imbalances’ or ‘I let go of all struggles’ or ‘I let go of all worries’, etc.
