How to Live a Balanced Life From the Lives of Celtic Christians

How to Live a Balanced Life From the Lives of Celtic Christians by Susan Gaddis at Holy in the Daily

Do you ever wonder how to live a balanced life? Do you have too much of one thing going on and not enough of something else? Who doesn’t want a balanced life, right?

I appreciate the spiritual legacy left by the Celtic Christians. They had a way of blending the things of the spirit with the everyday work of living, which brought their world into balance.

Yesterday was a holiday and today is work—part of the harmony of living. That being so, I thought I’d share a Celtic poem from Hebridean Altars about living in balance.

Labour and rest, work and ease,

the busy hand, and then the skilled thought:

this blending of opposites

is the secret

of the joy of living.
