Make this an even day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I act with purposeful awareness of equanimity and balance.

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Equanimity is a strong word that means calmness and
evenness. I also think of it as being devoid of judgment --
to walk evenly and equally on all the steps of life's
experiences. To be as peaceful in the face of disaster as
in the face of ease is equanimity. To be as confident when
the circumstances are tough as when they are simple is
equanimity. To be as calm with those with whom we disagree
philosophically as with those with whom we agree is
equanimity. Life is filled with bumps and joys and turns
and miracles and hiccups and surprises. Purposeful
awareness guides us to appreciating it all.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
I recall a conversation with several people who seemed to
enjoy judging others. The conversation turned to the film
"The Bird Cage" which gave them an opportunity to show their
judgments. Two people at the table agreed adamantly that
this is a bad film (oh, they had not seen it, by the way --
I was the only one who had). I listened to them talk about
how their way is the best way. The subject changed to
something else soon after I said gently, "If you go to this
film with love in your heart, you are likely to watch with
compassion. If you go with hatred and fear in your heart,
you are likely to...., well, actually if you go with hatred
and fear in your heart you might as well stay home." What
challenge do you face today that demonstrates to yourself
that you can be loving and balanced?

ABOUT THE NEXT TYPE OF AFFIRMATIONS
Tomorrow the Integrating/Embodying affirmations begin.
Today is a good day to check for a final action you might
want to take to demonstrate balance in one or more aspects
of your life. Of course, you might want to make a
commitment to yourself to claim and demonstrate balance each
day. A re-visit of your over-arching intention for balance
also allows you to integrate more fully all that you have
learned this month.
