Kamala Masters
The Buddha likened faith to a seed, an intention, to grow in the direction of wisdom and compassion, to venture beyond what is known. The seed sends down roots which take in nourishment to grow the seed. The roots are likened to virtuous activity. From there, sprouts grow, blossom and bear the fruits of serenity and insight.
2004-10-28 Equanimity 60:28
Kamala Masters
Equanimity is resting the mind before it falls into extremes of reactivity. The spacious, calm balance of equanimity can contain both the joys and sorrows of life— supporting mindfulness and the opening to deeper wisdom when we open to “how it is.” Moment to moment, equanimity leads to a great respect and to alignment with the truths that liberate.
