Flowing with Equanimity

I received a mailing from the Buddhist Peace Fellowship with a lovely brochure about the Four Immeasurables--loving-kindness, compassion, empathetic joy, and equanimity. The brochure relates each of these divine emotions to one of the four elements.

Equanimity, for instance, is associated with the water element.

Flowing in a wide stream of bold, beautiful social movements throughout space and time, 
i know i am not alone. 
Seeing the truth of impermanence, 
i recall that nothing lasts forever.

From this place of balance,
I use my gifts to take action
for what I believe is right.
