EFFORT AND EASE

The yoga instructor at the local gym delivers a gentle observation in every session: each posture we take is a striving to find the balance between effort and ease. This idea falls oddly on the ear. Effort and ease sound like opposites, things we might be pro or con about. But in fact, both come into play in a healthy bout of exercise.

In the body, a little effort always satisfies, since we enjoy feeling the thrill of life in our muscles. Mortal life is captured in the muscles and expressed through them. Yet at the same time, none of us favors working too hard or straining to the point of pain and injury. In the quest for health, we seek to walk a fateful tightrope between effort and ease.

The same holds true for the life of the spirit. On the religious quest, we yearn to grow and learn and become more than what we currently are. But perhaps, not too much more; and certainly, not all at once. Change is hard, and growth can be challenging to incorporate. In the body, muscles must first be torn down in order to be built up. The spirit, too, experiences growth as a relentless cycle of dying and rising.

Effort and ease it is, then. When we’re spiritually satisfied, it’s time to set ourselves a new challenge. When we seem to push grimly behind a relentless boulder of obligations, time to give ourselves a break.
