A Meditation by Anthony de Mello, SJ

Said a traveler to one of the disciples,
"I have traveled a great distance
to listen to the Master,
but I find his words quite ordinary."

"Don't listen to his words.
Listen to his message."

"How does one do that?"

"Take hold of a sentence that he says.
Shake it well
till all the words drop off.
What is left will set
your heart on fire."
