Balance is not something that should be fought for. Balance has already been achieved. No work should be put forth into maintaining balance, for it is held in place by the very nature of reality. Instead we must accustom ourselves to this balance and use it to our benefit.  
Once we come to terms with the fact that balance is already had, we can move our efforts past petty things and into the realm of importance.  

  • Accept all things that are
This does not mean that you should accept all; only that you should accept all that is held true by the balance.  

  • Reject all things that aren't
Do not take, without first personally exploring, any idea to be truth. There are those who will wrongfully contend that something can, or cannot be. It all is; therefore allowing for a comprehensive truth to be had. 

Religion is simply the lens through which humanity deciphers the interactions of everything surrounding us.  Since the earliest religions Balance has been observed.  The most basic form of balance is that of two sided balance.

  • Evil vs Good
This balance does not exist. Good and Evil are human creations. Good is all there is, and evil is simply going against the grain. If we were to abide by the natural balance of things, no evil need even be known. 
  • Order vs Chaos
This balance is key to understanding. For were it not for the shear order of things, there could be no balance. But were it not for the absolute chaos of things, balance would neither exist nor matter.  By understanding there is both order and chaos, we can better understand, and harmonize with what is. 
  • Individual vs Whole
The strict order of things would seem to allow no room for individuality; just as the chaos of things would seem to allow no room for a whole. This is fallacy that absolutely must be rejected. Every individual conscious plays a part in a larger whole, just as every whole is forged of individuals.  Everything larger than a point, and smaller than reality itself is both a whole and an individual.  It is for this reason that an individual fights for it's own existence, clearly it is actually a whole trying to defend all the individuals it contains. 

A more complex form of balance is that of elemental balance. 

  • Let the Fire Glow
Expand. Do not still, for you will stop, you must continue outward in all directions. No obstacle may stop you. If we are to remain in balance, we must fight to overcome all that resists us. 

  • Let the Water Flow
Conquer. Do not try, for you will fail; all you must do is will. There are no obstacles.  If we are to remain in balance, we must allow things to follow the path of least resistance. 

  • Let the Wind Blow
Improvise. Be not bound by what you believe, nor by what you know; You must do as you will. For If we are to stay in balance, we must never be held to an absolute. We must never be placed

  • Let the Grass Grow
Understand.  Do not doubt all that is, nor make any fight against it; For it will remain the same.  If we are to stay in balance, we must accept the absolute. We must take our place.
