I still feel ‘butterflies’ in my stomach when I speak in public. Instead of reacting to them, I observe each one flying free with every breath I take.
Daily Words of the Buddha ~ August 02, 2014
pariḷāho na vijjati.
The fever of passion exists not for one
who has completed the journey,
who is sorrowless and wholly set free,
and has broken all ties.
The Dhammapada: The Buddha’s Path of Wisdom,
translated from the Pali by Acharya Buddharakkhita
