Do You Really Want A Cure

--by Anthony DeMello (Jan 08, 2001)

To a distressed person who came to him for help the Master said, "Do you really want a cure?" "If I did not, would I bother to come to you?" "Oh yes. Most people do." "What for?" "Not for a cure. That's painful. For relief." To his disciples the Master said, "People who want a cure, provided they can have it without pain, are like those who favor progress, provided they can have it without change." -- Anthony de Mello
