Devil and his friend

Empowerment Coaching Blog-Devil and his friend

I was so tempted by something today, and I decided to quote one of the short stories from Anthony de Mello's book "The Song of the Bird". Its title is “Devil and his friend”


Once upon a time, the devil went out for a walk with a friend. Suddenly, he saw a man bent over the ground in front of him, trying to collect something.

- What is this man looking for? The devil's friend asked.

-"Fragments of Truth," replied the devil.

- "And it doesn't bother you?" His friend asked again.

-"Not at all" replied the devil. "I'll let him make a religious belief out of it."
