After being in the car for hours on our drive home from visiting family for Thanksgiving, we got stuck in traffic during the last 15 miles home. I was driving, feeling totally done, more than ready to be home. The girls were understandably irritable. It was not a great scene.

Yet, out the window was the most beautiful sunset. It was breathtaking — a pink and red epic experience. It was utterly breathtaking.

Both were happening at the same time – our suffering, and this incomprehensible beauty.

Noticing and appreciating this sunset was a conscious practice at that moment.

It’s the same with our own equanimity – it’s a conscious practice.

Here are the five steps that I discuss in detail in this episode:

  1. Practice meditation regularly.
  2. Cultivate the conditions for happiness.
  3. Notice your thoughts and feelings with curiosity.
  4. Interrupt the harmful thoughts.
  5. Rest in your feelings and feel them fully.

Rinse and repeat.

I hope this episode has helped you, my friend! If so, I’d really appreciate your feedback. Click here to leave me a voicemail!

Wishing you equanimity this week my friend.

With warmth & lovingkindness,
