Esoteric Equanimity

I am not sure why, but over the last few years I have been feeling myself pulled to a place of detachment. Not apathy, but the release of needing everything to go my way. The release of judgement.

I have learned that without enough context you can’t say whether a certain circumstance is either good or bad. It always depends.

Learned from a Buddhist monk named Abrahm to think in terms of Good?Bad? Who knows?

Marianne Williamson clarified for me that when we try to hold on to something so tight we are actually repelling it from us. That makes sense to me as, I notice when I REALLY want something, I hyper react. . . and that’s just not sexy.
