The Emptier Our Hands…

Peace, one and all…

Tezhibliikra

The emptier our hands and hearts are of everything, the better.
For freedom of the heart is better than anything ‘better’.
The sweet delight of spiritual poverty, for the twinkling of an eye,
is better than the magnificence of a hundred thousand Caesars.

Mevlana, Quatrain 1320
