Dear haijin, visitors and travelers,

Welcome, Namaste ,
Today we are going on with “The Song of the 18-ity’s” as compiled by Sri Sivananda. We are starting with the second-third of this wonderful spiritual song.
We are following the stepping stones further into the garden to finally arrive at the gazebo in the deep of the garden were we will celebrate our “Path of 18-Ity’s” with a traditional tea-ceremony.

This week our “Ity” is Equanimity and this Ity is to find the Inner Peace and Honesty of which is said that only the Tibetan people have it. Tibet, ruled by China, the home of the Dalai Lama, is a poor country. The Tibetans don’t have much except their everlasting smile and unconditional love for all and everything even for their Chinese rulers.

Be calm. Bear insult patiently. Bear injury, suffering, failures and disrespect calmly. Do not be elated by praise, pleasure, success and honor. Look upon both with equal vision. Behave alike towards friends and foes. Never let anything disturb your inner peace.

A wonderful and uplifting Ity I would say and I hope it will inspire you to write haiku.

    Equanimity, the most recent “Ity” at Tackle It Tuesday – about which our host says, “Be calm. Bear insult patiently. Bear injury, suffering, failures and disrespect calmly. Do not be elated by praise, pleasure, success and honor. Look upon both with equal vision. Behave alike towards friends and foes. Never let anything disturb your inner peace.”
