Equanimity

31 May 2017 life

Equanimity
is not indifference.

It is the desire
to experience life
as it is,
not as we would
wish it to be.

It is openness
to everything,
without the need
to grasp,
or push away.

It is the opposite
of indifference,
which is a kind of death
while living,
a blindness
to all we could experience
if we enjoyed the flow
of all life’s wonders
without expectation,
and without fear.
