Seven Jewels: Distilled Wisdom from Jan Frazier's When Fear Falls Away: Fourth Jewel
Skills of the Awakened
Three skills help us to adapt to the shift: the ability to function in both the outer and inner worlds like a frog in water and on land, the High Indifference, and Equanimity.
The first skill, the ability to shift focus between the inner world and the outer world, helps us to function in the world with a constant awareness of the universal consciousness in the background, (p. 59) and (p.186-187).
The second skill is involves detached compassion for human suffering. It is “the High Indifference” Franklin Merrell-Wolff talks about (p.60). This involves being “both serenely indifferent and deeply concerned” (p. 65).
Finally Jan Frazier reminds us that the shift makes it easy for us to be emotionally balanced and more level headed. In other words, the awakening pulls us out of our daily emotional roller-coasters.
