Monday Meditation: Finding Freedom in Difficult Moments


Equanimity is the state of balance and non-reactivity that arises when we are resting in full presence.
This brief video explores the possibility of finding this freedom when things don't go our way.

How many times do you allow a small part of what's not right in a current situation to negatively impact the entire experience? And then, when that yucky part of the situation is no longer there, well...how often do you find that the situation didn't actually improve as much as you assumed they would?

I found this brief excerpt, from a talk Tara Brach gave, to be incredibly eye-opening and 100% relatable. Watch it. What do you take away from the woman's experience that Tara so beautifully recounts?
