A Meditation by Anthony de Mello, SJ

The enlightened person, said the Master,
is one who sees that everything in the
world is perfect exactly as it is.

"What about the gardener?" someone asked.
"Is he perfect too?"

The monastery gardener was a hunchback.

"For what he is meant to be in life,"
said the Master,
"the gardener is a perfect hunchback."
