Detachment
by: Anthony de Mello, SJ, One Minute Wisdom

"It is rare but not impossible for someone to be rich and holy," he said one day.

"How?"

"When money has the effect on his heart that the shadow of that bamboo has on the courtyard."

The disciples turned to watch the bamboo's shadow sweep the courtyard without stirring a single particle of dust.
