“The genius of a composer is found in the notes of his music; but analyzing the notes will not reveal his genius. The poet’s greatness is contained in his words; yet the study of his words will not disclose his inspiration. God reveals himself in creation; but scrutinize creation as minutely as you wish, you will not find God, any more than you will find the soul through careful examination of your body.”

~Anthony de Mello

“This is what Wisdom means: To be changed without the slightest effort on your part, to be transformed, believe it or not, merely by waking to the reality that is not words, that lies beyond the reach of words. If you are fortunate enough to be Awakened thus, you will know why the finest language is the one that is not spoken, the finest action is the one that is not done and the finest change is the one that is not willed.”

~Anthony de Mello

“Some day you will understand that you are seeking what you already have,” said the Master.

“Then why do I not see it now?”

“Because you are trying to.”

“Must I then make no efforts?”

“If you relax and give it time, it will make itself known to you.”

~Anthony De Mello
