Goldilocks’ dilemma is finding the “just right” balance between extremes. Isn’t this what we are charged to do over and over again, day after day, in the human experience? A search for Balance on All Levels characterizes soul in the human experience.
Notice Goldilocks consciously and deliberately experiments with her choices. After her experiments, she chooses the best, most compatible choice for her.
What if our human experience was intended as no more nor less than a playful balancing act between all the extremes Life offers us? All we can do is choose healthy middle ground again and again, as best we can.
Goldilocks is a good metaphor for our immortal-eternal soul. As soul we are constantly invited to find our way between the extremes life presents to us: – Between endless hyper-vigilance and sloth-sleep, the “sleep of reason,” – Between anger and apathy, – Between over- and under participation at the heart level.
