Equanimity ~ Sivananda

In this world of pairs of opposites, man is tossed about hither and thither by various waves of emotion. Now he gets gain, success, honour, praise. The next moment, he gets failure, loss, dishonour, censure and disappointment. He who has evenness of mind or poise can pull on in this world joyfully and peacefully. Root yourself in your own unchanging, all blissful Atman within, by disciplining the mind and the senses. Then alone will you rest peacefully forever. No worldly wave can upset you. You will rest silently in the bedrock of your own innermost Self within, which is an ocean of peace.

Generally just Being. Nothing in particular, no claims to fame. I like gardening and the sea, nature, art in all forms from poetry to films and everything in between, and being in the company of my family.

''I am all pervasive. I am without any attributes, and without any form. I have neither attachment to the world, nor to liberation. I have no wishes for anything because I am everything, everywhere, every time, always in equilibrium. I am indeed, That eternal knowing and bliss, Shiva, love and pure consciousness.''
