What a Disgrace!

A woman complained to a visiting friend that her neighbor was a poor housekeeper.

“You should see how dirty her children are – and her house. It is almost a disgrace to be living in the same neighborhood as her. Take a look at those clothes she has hung out on the line. See the black streaks on the sheets and towels!”

The friend walked up to the window and said, “I think the clothes are quite clean, my dear. The streaks are on your window.”

(From “The Heart of the Enlightened” by Anthony deMello , page122)

The “Beloved”

The enjoyment of gardening or walking in nature comes because past and future fade away. Only the immediate connection to the earth and its beauty remain. The peaceful, loving quality of life’s Source floods through our connection to the moment. “Ah, I love the woods,” we think. But the peace is not inherent in the forest or the garden, the “beloved” that temporarily holds our attention. It is present within us. And when we connect to this inner wellspring, we feel our connection to all of life so much more strongly.
