Quotes of Anthony de Mello I

 

*

“I wish to become a teacher of the Truth.”
“Are you prepared to be ridiculed, ignored and starving till you are forty-five?”
“I am. But tell me: What will happen after I am forty-five?”
“You will have grown accustomed to it.”

.

The genius of a composer is found in the notes of his music; but analyzing the notes will not reveal his genius. The poet’s greatness is contained in his words; yet the study of his words will not disclose his inspiration. God reveals himself in creation; but scrutinize creation as minutely as you wish, you will not find God, any more than you will find the soul through careful examination of your body.

“What, concretely, is Enlightenment?”
“Seeing Reality as it is,” said the Master.
“Doesn’t everyone see Reality as it is?”
“Oh, no! Most people see it as they think it is.”
“What’s the difference?”
“The difference between thinking you are drowning in a stormy sea and knowing you cannot drown because there isn’t any water in sight for miles around.”
