"Everything is ok just the way it is."
This doesn't mean don't do anything, it means acting from a balanced position.
Balance like that of a Yogi or martial artist comes from preparatory practice. The cultivation of generosity compassion and wisdom is the most significant work we can do, and should resistance to this arise it can be pegged for a form of the three poisons.
When the practice gets too tight or too heavy, laughter is essential to spread the Qi and lift the mind. No lead balloons here, they don't do the work. This is a continuous back and forth effort to maintain forward momentum.
How can we act with equanimity when the problems that face us are so great?
We have to let go, we have to know that everything is ok just as it is, even though it is not. Everyone wins in the end, everything is temporary, everything is constantly changing. How can we cope with the nature of being? I have already said, really investigate and actively cultivate generosity compassion and wisdom.
