“These things will destroy the human race: politics without principle, progress without compassion, wealth without work, learning without silence, religion without fearlessness, and worship without awareness.” ― Anthony de Mello

 

"What kind of a person does Enlightenment produce?"
Said the Master:
"
To be public-spirited and belong to no party,
to move without being bound to any given course,
to take things as they come,

have no remorse for the past,
no anxiety for the future,
to move when pushed,
to come when dragged,
to be like a mighty gale,
like a feather in the wind,
like weeds floating on a river,
like a mill-stone meekly grinding,
to love all creation equally
as heaven and earth are equal to all
— such is the product of Enlightenment.
"
On hearing these words one of the younger disciples cried, "This sort of teaching is not for the living but for the dead," and walked away, never to return.

Rejection

    “Perfect love casts out fear. Where there is love there are no demands, no expectations, no dependency. I do not demand that you make me happy; my happiness does not lie in you. If you were to leave me, I will not feel sorry for myself; I enjoy your company immensely, but I do not cling.”
    ― Anthony de Mello,
    Awareness

     

    “There is only one cause of unhappiness: the false beliefs you have in your head, beliefs so widespread, so commonly held, that it never occurs to you to question them.”
    ― Anthony de Mello

     

    “The one who would be constant in happiness must frequently change.”
    ― Anthony de Mello, Awareness

     

    P.S:What would it take for me to be totally present in every moment of the day today…….and  BE all of what is possible for me to BE and DO ?????
