Quote for the week:

“To perfect my equanimity, I need to accept every experience into my awareness. I cannot refuse to pay attention. Refusing itself, the mind tensing in withdrawal, is suffering. And turning the mind away, refusing to look, would preclude clear and complete seeing. When my mind greets all moments with equal respect, it maintains stature enough to see that causal connections set every experience into its lawful time and place, that everything is always–breathtakingly–the only way that it can be. My heart, resting in Equanimity, can respond with compassion.”
~ Sylvia Boorstein from “Pay Attention, for Goodness’ Sake; Practicing the Perfections of the Heart, the Buddhist Path of Kindness”
