Vuoi lasciare la solita routine? Vuoi prendere in mano ogni aspetto della tua esistenza? Allora svegliati, apri gli occhi, scopri te stesso e riprenditi la vita con coraggio e serenità. Perché spesso «la vita è quella cosa che ci accade mentre siamo impegnati a fare altri progetti» o mentre ci trasciniamo inconsapevoli, immersi in una sorta di sonno esistenziale. Un libro prezioso che ci aiuta a scoprire chi siamo davvero e dove vogliamo andare.
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.
“Wisdom from one of the greatest spiritual masters of our time.”—James Martin, SJ, author of Jesus: A Pilgrimage
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 was one of the most important spiritual writers of the 20th century. Since his death in 1987, his stature has only increased. His books, including Song of the Bird, Sadhana, and the international bestselling Awareness are considered by many to be some of the most influential spiritual teachings of the last 50 years.
Now, to commemorate the 25th anniversary of his passing, Image Books is proud to present what may very well prove to be the last published work of this beloved spiritual teacher. Based on a lecture given just months before his death, Rediscovering Life invites us to unlock the deeper meaning of our lives. By becoming aware of the circuitous and habitual nature of our limiting thoughts, we can find simple solutions that will release us from feelings of isolation, anger, sadness and depression. In short, De Mello offers us a new way to look at the world and God that will transform our lives.
Rediscovering Life is a timeless and compassionate book that will awaken you to the beauty of human experience and increase your ability to see God in all things.
"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.
"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.
Anthony de Mello (Bombay 1931 - Nueva York 1987) fue un jesuita indio que bebió en las más ricas fuentes espirituales de su Iglesia, adoptó los postulados de la psicología humanista y, por su postura verdaderamente católica se atrevió a buscar y reconocer las huellas del Espíritu en tradiciones no cristianas. Supo unir la sabiduría de Oriente y Occidente, empleando relatos y parábolas para despertar a sus oyentes la conciencia de la presencia de Dios en ellos. Así enriqueció su experiencia de fe y tendió puentes de diálogo hacia los no cristianos y hacia quienes en general buscasen la Verdad, el Bien y la Belleza, incluso confesándose no creyente.
Redécouvrir la vie est l'ultime livre d'Anthony de Mello (1931-1987), conteur, maître spirituel et écrivain d'origine indienne qui a su mêler l'hindouisme, la psychothérapie et la tradition ignatienne dans une spiritualité neuve et efficace.
Écrit à partir d'une conférence donnée à peine quelques mois avant sa disparition, ce dernier message nous invite à découvrir la signification profonde de notre existence.
En devenant conscient de la nature circulaire et routinière de ces pensées qui nous enferment, il est possible de trouver des solutions simples aux sentiments de frustration, de colère, de tristesse et de désespoir.
Anthony de Mello nous propose ainsi une nouvelle manière de regarder le monde et Dieu et, par là, de nous transformer. Après Quand la conscience s'éveille, ce livre nous ouvre à la beauté de l'expérience humaine et nous révèle Dieu en toutes choses.
"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.
Through profound spiritual insights and his unique approach to the inner life, internationally acclaimed author Anthony de Mello points the way toward new levels of contemplation, happiness, love, 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.
