“Community is not formed by a set of slaves, by people demanding that other people make them happy. Community is formed by emperors and princesses. You’re an emperor, not a beggar; you’re a princess, not a beggar. There’s no begging bowl in a true community. There’s no clinging, no anxiety, no fear, no hangover, no possessiveness, no demands. Free people form community, not slaves.”

Anthony de Mello in “Awareness”

“The more you resist something, the greater power you give to it. – You always empower the demons you fight. – But if you flow with the enemy, you overcome the enemy. How does one cope with evil? Not by fighting it, but by understanding it. In understanding, it disappears.”

“The world, power, prestige, winning, success, honor, etc., are nonexistent things. You gain the world but you lose your soul. – There’s nothing there.”

“Anytime you renounce something, you are tied forever to the thing you renounce. – As long as you are fighting it, you are giving it power. – When you renounce something you are tied to it. The only way to get out of this is to see through it. Don’t renounce it, see through it.”
