BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, June 11th, 2012 by Fr. Anthony DeMello in AWARENESS

“I’m going to write a book someday and the title will be, “I’m an Ass, You”re an Ass.” That’s the most liberating, wonderful thing in the world, when you openly admit you’re an ass. It’s wonderful. When people tell me, “You’re wrong,” I say, “What can you expect of an ass?”

Disarmed, everybody has to be disarmed. In the final liberation, I’m an ass, you’re an ass. Normally the way it goes, I press a button and you’re up; I press another button and you’re down. How many people do you know who are unaffected by praise or blame? That isn’t human we say. Human means that you have to be a little monkey, so everybody can twist your tail, and you do whatever you OUGHT to be doing. But is that really human?”

                     Fr. Anthony DeMello, S.J., in “Awareness”
