BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, January 7th, 2013 by Fr. Anthony DeMello in THE WAY TO LOVE

“Here
is something that you must understand: There are two sources for change
within you. One is the cunningness of your ego that pushes you into
making efforts to become something other than you are meant to be so
that it can give itself a boost, so that it can glorify itself. The
other is the wisdom of Nature. Thanks to this wisdom you become aware,
you understand it. That is all you do, leaving the change – type, the
manner, the speed, the time of change – to Reality and to Nature.

Nature
is not a technician. Nature is creative. You will be a creator, not a
wily technician when there is abandonment in you – no greed, no
ambition, no anxiety, no sense of striving, gaining, arriving,
attaining. All there is, is a keen, alert, penetrating awareness that
causes the dissolution of all one’s foolishness and selfishness, all
one’s attachments and fears. The changes that follow are not the result
of your blueprints and efforts, but the product of Nature that spurns
your plans and will, thereby leaving no room for a sense of merit or
achievement or even any consciousness on the part of your left hand of
what Reality is doing by means of your right.”
