Joy

There’s more joy in austerity than pleasure in indulgence. Austerity decides wisely, neither anticipates nor regrets, refrains from unnecessary action, keeps the body clean, lean and relaxed, and maintains a bit in the mouth of the mind.

Wisdom from an empty mind

“I am the wisest man alive, for I know one thing, and that is that I know nothing.”

The “I don’t know” state disables ego and frees consciousness to perform its wonders.

Wisdom has no thought process.
