“A modern definition of equanimity: cool. This refers to one whose mind remains stable & calm in all situations.”  – Allan Lokos

“First, we must see that our negative actions arise due to prejudice and erroneous judgments. The discrimination that labels some as ‘friends’ and others as ‘enemies’ must be perceived as the root of our problems. We need to see that we label people and things in terms of our own desires, our own wishes. These wishes are transitory. The labeled objects are, themselves, impermanent. Such labeling is therefore very confused and false, yet it persists, and we continue to create suffering for ourselves. To avoid this, we need to develop equanimity for all beings suffering in samsara, tossed to and fro by their fleeting delusions, just like ourselves.”  – Zongtrul Losang Tsondru

Navajo Mountain is not only a dominant geologic presence in the northern area of the Navajo Reservation  but also a sacred site to the Navajo people. Known as Naatsis’aan to the Dine’, this landmark is readily identifiable due to its prominence on the skyline and its distinctive dome shape. – John Aldrich

“We all have an inner intuition for authenticity, for matched up internal and external truth. When we detect this, we feel immediate comfort. We know truth when we hear it.”  – Vironika Tugaleva

“Within the depths of authenticity lives integrity; waiting for our return. When we arrive, we are met with effortless joy, abundant living, peace and wholeness–nothing lacking, nothing broken. This is soul equanimity, the state of pure alignment with will of Source and will of self.”  – LaShaun Middlebrooks Collier

    Hi Chrissie; it’s so good to “see” you, as always! That’s one of the main things that I LOVE about the southwest – you can see for many, many miles in the distance. It’s snowing here today and we’re supposed to get eight to 12 inches of snow by tomorrow morning. Arctic-like temperatures for a few days too. Sending you a big virtual hug, and chop kisses for Dixie and Tilly!
