Autumnal Equinox

This week instead of my usual dharma talk after meditation we were treated to a preview of a speech one of our meditators. Dr. Lonnie Barbach, is giving at the AARP Convention coming up in Orlando, Florida.

But within the meditation, I was able to bring in the concept of balance to honor this moment of the equinox, when the day and night are equal — such an opportunity to notice how we find balance in our lives, and how easily we get out of kilter.

So happy Equinox to all of you! May the crisp air bring more spaciousness in your mind and heart, so that you can hold all of life in an open embrace, finding equanimity, upekkha.
