BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, August 5th, 2013 by Fr. Anthony DeMello in AWARENESS

“Personal worth doesn’t mean self-worth. Where do you get self-worth from? Do you get it from success in your work? Do you get it from having a lot of money? Do you get it from attracting a lot of men or a lot of women? How fragile all that is, how transitory. When we talk about self-worth, are we not talking, really, about how we are reflected in the mirrors of other people’s minds? But do we need to depend on that? One understands one’s personal worth when one no longer identifies or defines one’s self in terms of these transient things.”

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