2004-10-28 Equanimity 60:28
  Kamala Masters
Equanimity is resting the mind before it falls into extremes of reactivity. The spacious, calm balance of equanimity can contain both the joys and sorrows of life— supporting mindfulness and the opening to deeper wisdom when we open to “how it is.” Moment to moment, equanimity leads to a great respect and to alignment with the truths that liberate.
