Mind Blowing Balance: Woman With Steadiest Hands In The World Wows Audience With Her Balancing Abilities

There are no words to describe this performance. Miyoko Shida is a Japanese artist who has become an internet sensation with a YouTube video that shows her to be a true spiritual master. For a complete seven minutes, we are hypnotized by her performance as Ms. Shida spellbinds the audience into the present moment.

She is completely centered, without ego, and fixed into a rare moment of meditation and dance. You can see it in her eyes and her movements, she has no doubts, no questions, and no fear. For every movement, every pause, she is fully in the present, in the “now”.

Eckhart Tolle has said “All true artists, whether they know it or not, create from a place of no-mind, from inner stillness” and Ms. Shida's performance demonstrates the true power of living in the “now”.

Impossible acts of balancing are amazing and have been closely associated with magic for many years. No doubt, you have seen someone balance a fork on the edge of a toothpick.

However, it is rare to witness a balancing act of such artistry. In many ways, Ms. Shida's performance is a clear impression of just how fragile life is; one small movement and the whole sculpture would collapse. Watch below, her inspiring performance for the Spanish TV program “Tu si que vales” (“You can do it”).

Through her performance, Ms. Shida shows us that every moment of life is sacred, special, and unique, and should be treated as such. Not one piece of the sculpture is there without a purpose. Each piece is vital for the whole structure to be possible. She demonstrates how life is interconnected, everything and everyone is necessary to support creation.

As Buddha once said, “We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.”
