Citta takes a personal form in this lifetime. Rather than let it be formed through social forces of craving and slinging, ongoing practice is about bringing Dhamma into our lives-pausing, releasing pressure, acting with integrity.
Shaila Catherine gave the seventh talk in a eight-week series titled "Seven Factors of Awakening." This talk explores how the stability and the balance of equanimity can make our mind our friend, something that we can trust. When equanimity is strong, when there is pain, we won't tend to react with aversion; when there is pleasure, we won't tend to react with grasping. The mind will be balanced and be aware of the experience as it unfolds.
