Give Me A Word

The Master insisted that what he taught was nothing, what he did was nothing.  His disciples gradually discovered that Wisdom comes to those who learn nothing, unlearn everything. That transformation is the consequence not of something done but of something dropped.  ~ Anthony de Mello, SJ 
MORSEL:   In the pursuit of learning, every day something is acquired.  In the pursuit of Tao, every day something is dropped.  ~ Lao Tsu, Tao Te Ching 
BONUS:   God is not found in the soul by adding anything but by a process of subtraction.   ~ Meister Eckhart

  1. Great post.
    Sometime it is the most difficult thing to learn how to unlearn. I like the bonus:God is not found in the soul by adding anything but by a process of subtraction….I am in process of subtraction. 🙂

  2. There is a Chinese saying, “If you believe everthing a book says, you’d better to do without any books.” I like you post and the graphics. 🙂

Please share your reflection. Thank you.
