BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, July 17th, 2013 by Fr. Anthony DeMello in AWARENESS

“Negative feelings are in YOU, not in reality. So stop trying to change reality. That’s crazy! Stop trying to change the other person. We spend all our time and energy trying to change external circumstances, trying change our spouses, our bosses, our friends, our enemies, and everybody else. We don’t have to change anything. Negative feelings are in YOU. No person on earth has the power to make you unhappy. There is no event on earth that has the power to disturb you or hurt you. No event, condition, situation, or person. Nobody told you this; they told you the opposite. That’s why you’re in the mess that you’re in right now. That is why you’re asleep. They never told you this. But it’s self-evident.”

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