We are put here for a little space
that we may learn
how to bear the beams of love.
Think about this:
“What is it you seek?” asked the Master of a scholar who came to him for guidance.
“Life,” was the reply.
“If you are to live, words must die.” Said the Master.
When asked later what he meant, he said, “You are lost and forlorn because you dwell in a world of words. You feed on words, you are satisfied with words when what you need is substance. A menu will not satisfy your hunger. A formula will not slake your thirst.” ~ Anthony de Mello, SJ
