I am still

"You tell me to stand still, but I am not walking," he shouted, "whereas you who are walking say you are still. How is it that you are standing still but I am not?" The Buddha turned round. "My legs move but my mind is still," he said."Your legs are still but your mind moves all the time in a fire of anger, hatred, and feverish desire. Therefore, I am still but you are not."
-Majjhima Nikaya

the still mind, I manage it for seconds at a time, (now the madly off in all directions mind I have mastered), but the centered, still mind, that serenity I'm still working on.
lovely words. thank you.
