BEST of PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, March 15th, 2011 by Fr. Anthony DeMello in THE WAY TO LOVE

“If you want to know what it means to be happy, look at a flower, a bird, a child; they are perfect images of the kingdom. For they live from moment to moment in the eternal now with no past and no future. So they are spared the guilt and the anxiety that so torment human beings and they are full of the sheer joy of living, taking delight not so much in persons or things as in life itself.

As long as your happiness is caused or sustained by something or someone outside of you, you are still in the land of the dead. The day you are happy for no reason whatsoever, the day you find yourself taking delight in everything and in nothing, you will know that you have found the land of unending joy called the kingdom.”

                Fr. Anthony DeMello, in “The Way to Love”

“Mankind seems to be motivated by everyone pursuing their own self-interests. It is the rare individual who selflessly works for the benefit of all mankind. What is so difficult for most people is that this inner purpose is not about education, achieving wealth, or recognition. Finding yourself or your purpose is not about what you get; it is about what you give. What people don’t understand is that only by giving selflessly are you able to receive more than you had originally.”
