BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, December 17th, 2012 by Fr. Anthony DeMello in WALKING ON WATER

“Ambition is a brainwashing that has been done on us! We’ve been told that unless we have ambition, we won’t do anything. The energy and delight in work have been forgotten. When an archer shoots for no particular reason, he applies all his skill.  When he shoots to win the gold, he becomes blind, loses his reason, sees two targets. It’s not his ability that has changed, but the prize. He is more concerned about winning than about shooting. And the need to win has hollowed out his power. Ambition has taken away his power.”

                  Fr. Anthony DeMello, S.J., in “Walking on Water”
