He will know inner calmness, true peace, when he knows nevermore any emotional agitation. And this is true of its pleasurable as well as its painful forms. Both have to be risen above. Both the attraction which attaches him to a thing or person and the repugnance which prevents him from seeking it, are to be felt without any movement of the emotions, much less of the passions.
