“Equanimity is steady through vicissitudes, equally close to the things you may like and the things you do not like.
.
.
Observe when the tendency to move away from what you do not like ends, and the tendency to hold on to what you like is equally absent.
.
.
Personal preference no longer dictates the direction of attention.
.
.
Equanimity contains the complete willingness to behold the pleasant and the painful events of life equally.
.
.
It points to a deep balance in which you are not pushed and pulled between the coercive energies of desire and aversion.
.
.
Equanimity has the capacity to embrace extremes without getting thrown off balance.
.
.
Equanimity takes interest in whatever is occurring simply because it is occurring.
.
.
Equanimity does not include the aversive states of indifference boredom, coldness, or hesitation.
.
.
It is an expression of calm, radiant balance that takes whatever comes in stride.
