Equilibrium is balance. When we are in a mental state of equilibrium, we are immune to external shifts as we are internally balanced. Our emotions are more stable. We are less likely to be reactive. We are less likely to take things personally. We are more immune to explosive anger. We are more immune to putting others down. We are more immune to putting ourself down. We are more immune to compulsive attachment. It is a state of subtle joy. Everything feels well. Appearances are like images in a dream. Nothing is solid and real. Everything is ephemeral like a rainbow, or a wisp of smoke. Outside a storm can be brewing, but we are in the eye of the storm, not much affected.
