Anthony de Mello

The Master always left you to grow at your own pace. He was never known to
"push." He explained this with the following parable:


"A man once saw a butterfly struggling to emerge from its cocoon, too
slowly for his taste, so he began to blow on it gently. The warmth of his
breath speeded up the process all right. But what emerged was not a
butterfly but a creature with mangled wings.

"In growth," the Master concluded, "you cannot speed the process up. All
you can do is abort it."


Anthony de Mello, SJ

MORSEL:
In the confrontation between
the stream and the rock,
the stream always wins -
not through strength but by perseverance.

--H. Jackson Brown
