I saw the big orange sun rise this morning over the Berkeley hills and thought “That same sun, in that same place, will rise again this Wednesday morning, November 9th.” Then I remembered that my good friend and colleague Gil Fronsdal defines equanimity this way: Equanimity is the ability to say, “This is what’s happening now. Let’s see what happens next.” Whatever anxiety I have about tomorrow’s election is mitigated by that thought. After all, I only know what’s happening right now. And, there is always a “next.” I do care passionately about this election and I do have a very strong preference. I’ve already voted so there’s nothing more I can do except keep my own piece of mind and remain calm for those around me. Let’s all see what happens next.
