Buddhist Views/ Anthony De Mello

"Can I contribute anything toward my own enlightenment?"
"Not more than you can contribute to make the sun rise every morning".
"What then is the use of the mind exercises that you prescribe?"
"They take care that you are not asleep when the sun rises".

Anthony De Mello
