In struggling with the many current unknowns, we are reminded that we can face anything if we focus on the present moment and meet what comes our way with equanimity. Equanimity is a key spiritual faculty which allows us to face the known and the unknown, the ecstasies and the despairs, with steadiness and lightness. Equanimity helps us engage with life from an unlimited and interconnected perspective.
This past Sunday, despite Zoom having some technical difficulties, Eveline masterfully brought this topic into our discussion. She played a talk by Stephen Fulder that explores deeply the role of equanimity in our practice and life, how to develop it and use it to let the world in, not keep it out.
