A Thousand Mercies, A Thousand Troubles…

Peace, one and all…

Be without self and you will see a thousand mercies;
Be with self and you will see a thousand troubles.
Do not comb your beard proudly llike Pharaoh.
For if you comb it like this you will see the punishment of the arrogant.

Mevlana, Quatrain 1787
