Equanimity and the pull of the five poisons

The power of the five poisonous afflictions (mental dullness, desire, aversion, jealousy and pride) is very strong and each affliction can easily pull us away from grounded harmony into the treacherous security of taking up a position. Equanimity is the great quality of the Middle Way, avoiding extremes. It is the poise dynamically balancing according to circumstances yet without bias in any direction and it reveals the freedom not to be at the mercy of the afflictions.
This was followed by a day of teaching on the same topic.
