"Your mind has enormous hidden dimensions. Open yourselves completely to whatever reactions and emotions the world evokes from time to time. Accept them all without any reservation or resentment. By assimilating everything and all, your mind grows deeper, stabler and more enriched."

sthitaprajna

sanskrit : स्थितप्रज्ञ ; Unaffectedness.  

प्रजहाति यदा कामान् सर्वान् पार्थ मनोगतान् ।
आत्मन्येवात्मना तुष्ट: स्थितप्रज्ञस्तदोच्यते ॥ २-५५ ॥

When one renounces all desires born of the mind and rejoices by himself on his own Self, he is considered a sthita-prajna.

दुःखेष्वनुद्विग्नमनाः सुखेषु विगतस्पृहः ।
वीतरागभयक्रोधः स्थितधीर्मुनिरुच्यते ॥ २-५६ ॥

“He who remains unruffled in duhkhas and un-yearning, unhankering amidst sukhas, who is constantly given to sublimate and transcend ragadvesha and bhaya (desire, resentment and fear) is a sthitadhi. He is verily a Muni, one given devoutly to rumination.”
