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 favour progress, provided they can have it without change.”

– Anthony de Mello, SJ
