I think that we often get carried away with our ideas about how things should be, about what is important and what is not.
|Complimentary and interdependent opposing forces|
A balance which we as humans tend to be woefully unaware of, and seem to do our very best to disrupt as much as possible. For instance, here genetically modified food is considered normal--a concept which I find abhorrent and more than a little terrifying. One cannot mess with the basic building blocks of existence and expect the balance that has always been to maintain indefinitely.
In fact, I think that most of the issues we face as humans on earth today, come down to the very basic truth that we live in a world which has become extremely unbalanced.
But I digress...
In the natural creation of all things there is an amazingly intricate balance. Like a delicate dance performed to the perfect tune, where every step and every note are intricately woven together.
In my opinion, it is in the disruption of balance where most problems arise in health, happiness, relationships...Life.
From an outside perspective, D/s may appear to be an extremely unbalanced concept; however, I believe that Dominance and submission are, by there very nature, an epitome of the expression of Yin and Yang--opposing forces that are not in opposition to each other, and wherein the existence of each individual aspect is dependent on the other.
For us, not living our relationship in the form of power exchange was unbalanced. And while things were often good, and we loved each other deeply, that lack of balance often led to unnecessary disruption and disputes.
With D/s came balance. When we get off track it is because, in some form or fashion, our balance has been disrupted.
At its very core, life, earth, existence, the universe itself--are all inherently and intricately dependent upon balance.
