91-Equanimity,by Banthe:Comments:
Non-involved and even Equanimity is a subtle form of happiness... By stabilization
it perfects and consummates all the other six links to awakening: Awareness,
Investigation, Energy, Joy, Tranquillity and Concentration. Equanimity is proximate
cause for knowing and seeing it, as it really is. Equanimity quenches any agitation!
When seeing and noting: 'All this is constructed, conditioned, coarse and transient!
But this state of serene equanimity is indeed exquisitely peaceful...', then instantly
ceases any arisen agreeable or nasty feeling, when Equanimity takes its stance...!

Loong's comment:To me Equanimity is the capacity of seeing things as they REALLY ARE.

92- Sometimes,old habits die hard.Detachment of these necessitates more work than others.Mara is a conning ennemy.

93 - "Only with the heart [can one] see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye."
This is not from a Buddhist text, but from The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint Exupéry. I was reminded recently how true this is, and how the path of opening the heart is never done. We can always be surprised by the forces in us that rise up to try and stop it, out of fear or self-righteousness. Letting go and opening the heart is truly the path.

97- Met an ex work friend yesterday.He is a complete atheist.
I was not trying to sell him any ideas.He kept coming up with citations from other atheists.So at one point ,I cut the conversation monologue and left him.
I found myself lucky to live what I am living now.
Yesterday on the "Bones" show,there were people preparing a person to die The Tibetan way.The researcher did not do his job well.The man in charge kept saying :Oh my god:
Bones,said if she died would like her body dismembered and left
on top of a mountain,for the birds and animals to feed.That is sometimes done in the Tibetan region.

98-My favorite words in Buddhism,are;Mind,Mindfulness,Impermanence,Samsara,a little more exotic ,Equanimity,--Then there is rebirth attachment,cravings,fetters,mara,Noble eighfold path,Enlightenment.If you know what each of these words mean you know what buddhism is about.
