the Power of ‘Peace, Patience, Observation & Balance’





A wise man once said that it’s our human nature to want things fast…..but speed is not always the right answer. The process to enlightenment is often a simple & slow path, allowing time for understanding, contemplation, acceptance & reflection upon the newness we are experiencing & digesting. Sometimes spinning does nothing more than make one dizzy….climbing a mountain of knowledge more over-stimulating than gently flowing down a peaceful stream  & never a good idea to eat an entire ‘Pie’ at one sitting ! A full satisfying bowl of ‘Patience & Equanimity’ is often not the top choice pick on the menu….but often times it should BE ! A quiet moment in the butterfly garden away from the parade….an explosion of fireworks soon dissipates to a black & empty sky, while a thoughtful gaze at a calm starry night can fill one’s soul with long lasting benefits. The process we All embark upon is in place in this way for a reason…..”I am choosing the speed & frequency that is best for me to BE in perfect alignment with my Divinity….growing, learning, knowing & re-connecting to the Divine & Sacred Life Energy of Creation…..Word I Am Word”

“Equanimity” is one of the most sublime emotions of Buddhist practice. It is the ground for wisdom and freedom and the protector of compassion and love… is the power of observation, the ability to see without being caught by what we see. When well-developed, such power gives rise to a great sense of peace….in India the word was sometimes used to mean “to see with patience”…..also “to stand in the middle of all this.” As a form of equanimity, “being in the middle” refers to balance, to remaining centered in the middle of whatever is happening. This balance comes from inner strength or stability. The strong presence of inner calm, well-being, confidence, vitality, or integrity can keep us upright, like a ballast keeps a ship upright in strong winds. As inner strength develops, ‘Equanimity’ follows.
