A Meditation by Anthony de Mello, SJ

The Master claimed that the world
most people see is not the world of
Reality, but a world their head creates.

When a scholar came to dispute this,
the Master set two sticks on the floor in
the form of the letter "T" and asked,
"What do you see here?"

"The letter "T," said the scholar.

"Just as I thought," said the Master.
"There's no such thing as a letter "T";
that's just a symbol in your head.
What you have here is two broken
branches in the form of sticks."
