There are several tools that can be used to stay In Balance:
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
- Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)
If you’re not careful then each of these can also be used as a tool to get Out Of Balance. A case in point is that CBT used consistently to promote positive thoughts as a way out of Depression can lead to Mania.
Alternatively you can give up on Balancing the Self altogether and go for Ego Death as promoted by Buddhism and Eckhart Tolle. Apparently this works too though I haven’t tried it.
