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.
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
