overcome all obstacles

art-obstacle“You are wherever your thoughts are…make sure your thoughts are where you want to be.” 

-- Rabbi Nachman of Breslov, Likutei MoHaRaN, Volume 1, 21

Munuchat ha-nefesh (equanimity) is a middah that strengthens one’s ability to live out of a general sense of peace and well-being, regardless of external circumstances. Rabbi Nachman’s observation and encouragement point to this middah. We decide the kind of world we are living in based on the mindset we have. At the same time, challenges do come our way. This is where equanimity becomes crucial.
