Equanimity--Samatvam

I have been doing some research on this subject....
It is not easy to first think leave alone achieve a sense of equanimity.

We grow up opinionated--frankly all of us have a strong view on every topic under the sun. Some of us are more articulate, some mildly expressive and others keep a piece of their mind to themselves. I am of the first kind, you may say. I love to hear the sound of my own voice!

This has led me into plenty of hot water, mainly to chronic laryngitis. I used to be on the stage where I found expression for this opinionatedness. I had to give that up--the stage I mean--as I was ending up on a merry-go-round of stage appearance-->throat infection--> strong medication and bed. So now I am being opinionated on this blogspot.

Will I achieve this equanimity--just writing and not bothering about anybody sharing my thoughts? Will somebody read all this....Oh well time will tell.

    If only life could be that simple. Now you will start getting pain in your fingers from typing in all the stuff that you have spared your throat from. This may just however be the right outlet to let off all the steam that comes your way.

    All the way.

  3. Hi RR

    No pain no gain!

    The Internet revolution has brought knowledge to the fingertips of most people.

    That is enough to give a sense of equanimity to all.
