I made the appropriate preparations for meditation and then began my meditation on equanimity.
Friends become enemies. Enemies become friends. Strangers become enemies. Enemies become strangers. Strangers become friends. Friends become strangers. The people we meet in this world are constantly changing their status, and believing their temporary status to be their intrinsic nature, we develop atttachment, hatred or ignorance towards them.
Who is the intrinsic enemy if they can become our friend or a stranger? How can I develop hatred toward them?
The most beneficial attitude is a constant feeling of warmth and friendliness towards friends, enemies and strangers alike. I focused on this feeling of equanimity for the rest of the meditation.
May all living being develop equanimity.
