      Developing equanimity

      "Our attitudes towards others are normally unbalanced. When we see a 
      friend, or someone we find particularly attractive, we are pleased; 
      when we see an enemy, or an unattractive person, a feeling of dislike 
      automatically arises; and when we see a stranger, or someone we find 
      neither attractive nor unattractive, our mind remains indifferent to 
      them. Such unbalanced attitudes are the main obstacle to developing 
      unbiased love, compassion, and bodhichitta . . . Our first task, 
      therefore, is to free our mind from these unbalanced attitudes and 
      develop a genuine equanimity towards all living beings."
