Equanimity is the evenness of mind, especially in difficult circumstances. Develop a mind that’s filled with so much love and resembles space.

This practice aims to cultivate the deep sense of being a friend to yourself. Firstly, take care of yourself.

The secret of gratitude is that it can be cultivated and strengthened as a source of well being and inner happiness.

Love takes off the masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within.
