Daily Wisdom / Tibetan Dharma

The Domain of Equanimity

Book coverDuring lifetimes spent wandering in the round of rebirth without beginning or end, your present enemies were once extremely beneficial friends and your present friends were once harmful enemies. Moreover, if you do not consider present enemies as such, but treat them helpfully as friends, it is possible that they will prove even more helpful than friends. Therefore, rest in equanimity toward others: give up attachment to friends and reject hatred toward enemies.
