Professor Penguin – Equanimity

I have way too many TV shows to watch! One show that I am caught up on is Vikings. What a fabulous cast and scenery! I cannot wait for it to return!!

I don’t expect to see penguins in this show unless it’s some kind of psychedelic dream sequence, so I have to get a plug in where I can. This king, King Ecbert, was praying and said, “Lord, you know me for a sinner, and I think you have already decided to cast me out into the darkness—like a fallen angel, to suffer in Purgatory or the fires of Hell for all eternity. Think you, Lord, that I could look upon such scenes with equanimity? That I do not dream in the dead of night of returning to your light and the promises of Heaven? Am I not a man, like other men?” That word! It sounded so awesome, I had to know what it meant!

I have already used this new-to-me word in everyday life! Love it!

Now, when shit starts to hit the fan I just think about how much equanimity I can exude! I think the key is not to go too far and show off your best “deer in the headlight” look.

This is an important life skill, y’all! Something that must be learned and performed! To show chill in the face of chaos! Learn it now!
