‘Equanimity’s strength derives from a combination of understanding and trust. It is based on understanding that the conflict and frustration we feel when we can’t control the world doesn’t come from our inability to do so but rather from the fact that we are trying to control the uncontrollable.’ (Lovingkindness)

Once I get back from England, I will be starting to focus on preparing for my upcoming classes at Zen Center; this book will be an important source of material, for sure.
