  Jose Reissig
The appropriate response to the conflicts that come our way is equanimity, rather than adding fuel to the fire by rushing to take sides. Equanimity also requires that we let the conflicts touch our heart while we defuse them. It is surely not indifference.

2016-04-08 Equanimity and Kamma 55:53
  Sally Clough Armstrong
There are two main aspects to equanimity as a Brahma Vihara: first, a balanced, spacious mind, which is a mental factor we can know and cultivate. Secondly, an understanding of the nature of reality, known in Buddhist teachings as the dhamma, or truth, which is expressed here in the teachings on kamma (karma in Sanskrit.) Kamma simply means action, and refers to the universal laws of cause and effect and conditionality. In this teaching, the Buddha highlighted the importance of intentions in our actions. We come to understand that our lives are shaped by our choices, and the importance of bringing mindfulness and wisdom to our choices and intentions. We also should be aware that, even with good intentions, our actions can have harmful impacts, especially as we live, work and practice in communities with people with different cultural, racial, economic, gender identifications, sexual orientations, or other diverse experiences.
