Self-Righteousness

The Master loved ordinary people and was suspicious of those who stood out for their holiness.
To a disciple who consulted him on marriage he said, "Be sure you don't marry a saint."
"Why ever not?"
"Because it is the surest way to make yourself a martyr," was the Master's merry reply.

    Anthony de mello

    Until his sudden death on June 2, 1987, Fr. Tony de Mello was the director
    of the Sadhana Institute of Pastoral Counseling near Poona, India.
    Author of five best selling books, renowned worldwide for his
    workshops, retreats, and prayer courses, he aimed simply to teach people
    how to pray, how towake up and live.

    Most people, he maintained, are asleep. They need to wake up,
    open up their eyes, see what is real, both inside and outside of themselves.
    The greatest human gift is to be aware, to be in touch with oneself, one's body, mind, feelings, thoughts, sensations.
