by Anthony de Mello

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."
