The Way to Love Profound love is at the heart of this warm, compassionate collection of meditations by spiritual master Anthony de Mello -- a last inspiring gift to the countless readers whose lives he touched.
Anthony De Mello "This is your wake-up call! You may not have even realized you were sleep-walking. Most of us are most of the time. Awareness is an eye-opener. It's Anthony de Mello telling you gently but firmly, 'It's time to get up now.'" --Charles Osgood of "CBS Sunday Morning" and "The Osgood File"
"Awareness will be the critical test of American business in the next decade. I call it the 'business of awareness.'" --F.X. Maguire, Hearth Communications Group
The heart of Anthony de Mello's bestselling spiritual message is awareness. Mixing Christian spirituality, Buddhist parables, Hindu breathing exercises, and psychological insight, de Mello's words of hope come together in Awareness in a grand synthesis.
In short chapters for reading in quiet moments at home or at the office, he cajoles and challenges: We must leave this go-go-go world of illusion and become aware. And this only happens, he insists, by becoming alive to the needs and potential of others, whether at home or in the workplace.
Here, then, is a masterful book of the spirit, challenging us to wake up in every aspect of our lives.
Anthony De Mello Profound love is at the heart of this warm, compassionate collection of meditations by spiritual master Anthony de Mello -- a last inspiring gift to the countless readers whose lives he touched.
Anthony De Mello ‘This is a book about a path for reaching God in our own time,’ says Anthony De Mello at the beginning of Walking on Water. As he moves us along that path, he blends Christian wisdom with Eastern methods of meditation and, in his own inimitable style, draws widely on stories of monks, rabbis and soldiers, fairy tales and legends, gentle jokes and Zen sayings, along with numerous simple exercises. In Part One he deals with the themes of silence, peace, happiness, life, freedom, love, prayer, liberation, spirituality, and he rounds off with a chapter called ‘Leave your boat on the beach’. Part Two concentrates on method and exercises, under the general title of ‘Clearing out inherited baggage’. Fresh, lively and absorbing, Anthony De Mello’s extraordinary insights into the reality of human living, and its divine origins and destination, will come as a breath of fresh air and encouragement to everyone who seeks meaning and purpose in our turbulent world.
Anthony De Mello The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius is one of the great masterpieces of the Christian canon. A series of meditations and practices that guides seekers on a journey to spiritual perfection, this manual has been used by millions of religious and lay persons alike for centuries.

Drawn from a series of talks de Mello gave before his untimely death in 1987, this book challenges us to achieve new levels of understanding and inner exploration, with chapters on how to hear the voice of the divine, the need for repentance, and how to ascend to love in our day-to-day life,.
A must-have for fans of de Mello’s work and anyone interested in learning to pray in profound and meaningful ways, Seek God Everywhere is an inspirational and practical work that will transform your life.
Anthony De Mello Bestselling author Anthony de Mello has earned international acclaim for his profound spiritual insights and his unique approach to the inner life. In One Minute Wisdom, he points the way toward new levels of contemplation and contentment, love and harmony, wisdom and enlightenment.
In more than two hundred parables and lessons about living life fully yet simply, de Mello gives examples filled with wisdom that cannot be conveyed in regular direct discourse. Rooted in the spirit of the Gospel and spanning the mystical traditions of East and West, this invigorating volume -- like all the author's previous books -- is intended to enliven our faith and free us from whatever imprisons our mind, body, and soul.
One Minute Wisdom will lead from sense to sensitivity, from mood to meaning, from thought to feeling. And as de Mello writes, "Wisdom can come without the slightest effort -- in the time it takes to open your eyes."
Wherever your spiritual belief may lie -- or even if you have no beliefs at all -- you will find in these pages needed and helpful direction on continuing the process of self-discovering and on finding the satisfying riches that lie deep within you.

Anthony De Mello "Said the river to the seeker: 'Does one really have to fret about enlightenment? No matter which way I turn, I'm homeward bound.'" --Anthony de Mello
We are like bears pacing in a cage, Anthony de Mello says. Even if the cage is removed, we keep pacing in the same timid limits. We are afraid to get out. And we think that the only way out is by endless striving and thinking.
But this profound healer and spiritual master shows us another way. The Heart of the Enlightened, the sequel to the highly successful Taking Flight, contains more than two hundred of de Mello's favorite stories. Whether Buddhist tales, Hindu fables, Islamic sayings, or Christian parables, the stories de Mello has chosen are sure to seep through to the heart. They touch on relationships, human nature, service, spirituality, and enlightenment. These are stories to be read slowly and savored. They are the key to liberating us from all that would pen us in.
Anthony De Mello "Every one of these stories is about YOU." --Anthony de Mello
Everyone loves stories; and in this book the bestselling author of Sadhana: A Way to God shares 124 stories and parables from a variety of traditions both ancient and modern. Each story resonates with life lessons that can teach us inescapable truths about ourselves and our world.
De Mello's international acclaim rests on his unique approach to contemplation and ability to heighten self-awareness and self-discovery. His is a holistic approach, and in the words of one reviewer: "his mysticism cuts across all times and peoples and is truly a universal invitation." The Song of the Bird uses the familiar yet enduring medium of the story to illustrate profound realities that bring us in touch with the problems and concerns of daily life, as well as with our common spiritual quest. The aim is to develop the art of tasting and feeling the message of each story to the point that we are transformed. "Let the story speak to your heart, not to your brain," the author directs. "This may make something of a mystic out of you."
Enhanced by lovely ink drawings, this is indeed a volume to treasure, to share, and to read many times over, for it is everyone's best companion on the road to spiritual growth.

Wellsprings is indeed a book for everyone who thirsts for inner growth -- regardless of age, religion, or cultural background.

For, as the teacher explains, "in solitude your self is given back to you."
Anthony De Mello Christian Exercises in Eastern Form
Truly a one-of-a-kind, how-to-do-it book, this small volume responds to a very real hunger for self-awareness and holistic living. It consists of a series of spiritual exercises for entering the contemplative state -- blending psychology, spiritual therapy, and practices from both Eastern and Western traditions.
Anthony de Mello offers here an unparalleled approach to inner peace that brings the whole person to prayer -- body and soul, heart and mind, memory and imagination. In forty-seven exercises that teach things such as awareness of physical sensations, stillness, healing of hurtful memories, and consciousness of self and world, de Mello succeeds in helping all who have ever experienced prayer as difficult, dull, or frustrating. The essential key, he notes, is to journey beyond mere thought-forms and discover satisfying new depths in prayer from the heart. This allows for a greater sense of awareness amid silence, and disposes the one who prays to untold riches, spiritual fulfillment, and ultimately, a mystical experience of God-centeredness. Drawing on Scripture, as well as insights from Eastern and Western spiritual masters, the author has a unique appeal that transcends time, culture, and religious background.
For many years a bestseller in the English language, Sadhana has now been translated into more than two dozen foreign languages. Readers the world over have eagerly received this sincere spiritual leader, who has led many toward the wealth of insight and spirit that dwells within them.
Anthony De Mello "Both what you run from -- and what you yearn for -- are within you." --Anthony de Mello, S.J.
In the tradition of his bestselling Song of the Bird, de Mello has written these story meditations as stepping stones toward a spiritual life based on self-knowledge and understanding.
This book contains over 250 stories, grouped under the themes of Prayer, Awareness, Religion, Grace, "Saints," Self, Love, and Truth. Although derived from a variety of countries and cultures, these tales share the spiritual heritage and popular humor of the entire human race. As he does so skillfully in his other books, de Mello uses the medium of the story to enable his readers to work through their problems and arrive at essential Truth. With each seemingly simple anecdote comes a lesson powerful enough to break down barriers that limit self-understanding -- which in turn fosters a better understanding of others, in all situations in life. "Even if you read the stories in this book only for the entertainment," he warns, "there is no guarantee that an occasional story will not slip through your defenses and explode when you least expect it to."
Taking Flight offers a joyful, transcendental experience. De Mello pilots a spiritual journey with the skill of a true master.

With more than two million books sold and countless admirers throughout the world, Anthony de Mello is regarded as one of the most influential religious teachers of the past fifty years. Since his death in 1987, widespread recognition of his work’s enduring value has continued to grow.

The daily parables, sometimes cryptic and often witty, are not meant so much to instruct as to awaken the understanding deep within the human heart.

Anthony De Mello Dal maestro del Pensiero Positivo una lezione indimenticabile sul magico intreccio fra vita, destino e felicità. Siamo come pesciolini. Ci agitiamo ansiosi nel mondo, divorati da ambizioni che una volta soddisfatte ci lasciano in balìa di una sete ancora più grande. Anthony De Mello - uno dei primi veri guru della mindfulness - torna con uno scritto sorprendente sul senso della vita, raccolto dagli allievi della sua scuola in occasione di uno degli ultimi seminari tenuti alla Fordham University. Il suo messaggio è un invito a riscoprire la "meditazione su di sé". Dobbiamo allenarci a scendere nel profondo della nostra anima per distinguere le "illusioni" dai "desideri": le illusioni sono superficiali, restano al livello della mente e, se le assecondiamo, ci annebbiano producendo attaccamento egoistico, bulimia e persistente scontentezza; i desideri profondi sono invece il nostro vero Sé, qualcosa che già possediamo, ma di cui abbiamo perso il contatto. Quando entriamo nella "dinamica del desiderio" a poco a poco sentiamo una sinfonia. È la musica della vita, del nostro posto nel mondo, della realizzazione piena del nostro destino. In alcuni attimi, la melodia ci fa toccare una consapevole felicità.
Anthony De Mello "Przebudź się na piękno rzeczywistości i odkryj życie, za jakim tęsknisz"
Anthony de Mello był jednym z ważniejszych autorów duchowych dwudziestego wieku, znanym na całym świecie ze swoich pism i konferencji. Rodowity Hindus, jezuita mieszkający w Indiach przez wiele lat, zmarł nagle w 1987 roku. Od chwili śmierci jego sława ciągle rośnie, a książki, takie jak Pieśń ptaka, Wezwanie do miłości i światowy bestseller Przebudzenie, są powszechnie uważane za źródło duchowego odrodzenia.
Książkę Odkryć życie na nowo, spisaną w oparciu o wykład wygłoszony na kilka miesięcy przed śmiercią autora, można uznać za jego ostatnią opublikowaną pracę. De Mello pokazuje nam w niej nowy sposób patrzenia na świat i Boga. Zaprasza, byśmy odkryli głębsze znaczenie naszego życia, wyzbyli się ograniczającego myślenia i znaleźli ślad nadziei, która uwolni nas od poczucia izolacji, gniewu, smutku i depresji. Odkryć życie na nowo to książka ponadczasowa, która przebudzi cię na piękno ludzkiego doświadczenia i pomoże zobaczyć Boga we wszystkim.
Anthony De Mello Anthony De Mello er en af de sjældne kapaciteter, der får os til at åbne øjnene. Han påpeger klarsynet og præcist tilværelsens absurditeter og udstiller det sindsyge ræs, de fleste af os er en del af og tager for givet.
Ifølge De Mello er der ingen, der kan vise os, hvordan vi skal leve, for det vil blot være en ny teknik, en ny programmering, men vi kan lære at iagttage os selv og på den måde bringe os ud af illusionernes fængsel, se klarere, se verden som den smukke symfoni, den altid har været.
Anthony De Mello Esta obra procura despertar em cada um de nós a beleza da experiência humana e nos convida a encontrar o significado mais profundo de nossa vida. Antony de Mello oferece uma nova maneira de olhar o mundo e Deus que irá transformar nossa vida, por meio de superação dos desejos, das programações mentais e das crenças que costumam condicionar nossa liberdade. Segundo o autor: "Tornar-se consciente da natureza tortuosa e habitual dos nossos pensamentos limitantes nos permite encontrar soluções simples que nos libertam de sentimentos e isolamento, raiva, tristeza e depressão."
Anthony De Mello Con la sua impareggiabile freschezza, Anthony De Mello racconta storie, recupera parabole, rievoca miti per insegnarci a trovare una strada nel labirinto delle nostre emozioni, riabbracciando il gusto per una vita ardita, appassionata, capace di inseguire e realizzare l'impossibile. Ciascuno di noi guarda la realtà da un'angolazione diversa. E spesso queste prospettive sono errate, inficiate da pregiudizi, diffidenze e paure. Una mente lucida - non intimidita e aperta alle novità - conosce i propri limiti, ha imparato a fare i conti con essi, e non si lascia scoraggiare in caso di fallimento. Una mente in equilibrio non è affannata, sa come utilizzare il tempo e lo impiega in funzione di pochi obiettivi precisi, non si giudica colpevole quando non raggiunge determinati traguardi, sa come considerare le proprie aspirazioni. Solo riuscendo a individuare i nostri più autentici desideri potremo conquistare la felicità, a patto di non restare inerti ad attendere che qualcuno faccia il miracolo per noi e al nostro posto. Occorre alimentare la scintilla di coraggio che abita in noi, ansiosa di diventare fuoco. «E all'improvviso la vita non sarà più l'incubo che sembrava. Svegliatevi!».
