“If you could read a book containing all that has happened and will ever happen in your life, would you? If you choose to read it, you must read it cover to cover.” Just don’t feel writing what book that would be, today. I can only imagine the book will be a Trilogy like Lord of the Rings. That’s how sometimes I picture myself in book form. There will be no ending. Fourth booking coming soon. Furthermore, it will be an eBook form. Instead let me share this beautiful video which I would prefer to call “Where on Earth is Matt?” instead of “Where the Hell is Matt?” I find it uplifting. Hoping you will enjoy it as much as I did. Have a good day, everyone. In keeping with his doctrine that nothing be taken too seriously, not even his own teachings, the Master loved to tell this story on himself: “My very first disciple was so weak that the exercises killed him.
My second disciple drove himself crazy from his earnest practice of the exercises I gave him.
My third disciple dulled his intellect through too much contemplation.
But the fourth managed to keep his sanity.”
“Why was that?” someone would invariably ask.
“Possibly because he was the only one who refused to do the exercises.”
The Master’s words would be drowned in howls of laughter.
Anthony de Mello, SJ
