Even-Tempered

60354899_700227103733620_753026093337804800_nThere is no peace in the Triple Realm. It is like a burning house, full of suffering. It is frightening indeed.

Nevertheless, individuals at times achieve awakening through such circumstances as misfortune or blessings, conflict or harmony, suffering or joy… The means of achieving awakening are not fixed. To the wise, who know how to adapt flexibly to circumstances and are at peace with their lot, there is no suffering that is not joy, no conflict that is not harmony, no misfortune that is not a blessing.

Therefore, the wise are at peace with themselves and others, understand human destiny, do not resent the heavens or blame their fellow beings and are always even-tempered, peaceful and calm, regardless of circumstances.

—Buddha Shakyamuni, Lotus Sutra
