One Minute Wisdom

Imitation

After the Master attained Enlightenment, he took to living simply — because he found simple living to his taste.
He laughed at his disciples when they took to simple living in imitation of him.
"Of what use is it to copy my behaviour," he would say, "without my motivation. Or to adopt my motivation without the vision that produced it?"
They understood him better when he said, "Does a goat become a rabbi because he grows a beard?"

"Thought can organize the world so well that you are no longer able to see it." Anthony de Mello

Anthony de melloAnthony de Mello

Until his sudden death on June 2, 1987, Fr. Tony de Mello was the director

Most people, he maintained, are asleep. They need to wake up,
open up their eyes, see what is real, both inside and outside of themselves.
The greatest human gift is to be aware, to be in touch with oneself, one's body, mind, feelings, thoughts, sensations. Read more

    The Way to Love

    The Way to Love is a series of wonderful meditations representing some of the last of Tony's writing before his death 25 years ago. In this volume Tony uses quotations from the Christian scriptures to share his insights on the power of love.
