Book Overview

From the international bestselling author of Awareness, a pocket-sized guide that will bring you to new levels of spiritual awareness.

The Way To Love
contains the final flowering of Anthony de Mello's thought, and in it he grapples with the ultimate question of love. In thirty-one meditations, he implores his readers with his usual pithiness to break through illusion, the great obstacle to love. Love springs from awareness, de Mello insists, saying that it is only when we see others as they are that we can begin to really love. But not only must we seek to see others with clarity, we must examine ourselves without misconception. The task, however, is not easy. The most painful act, de Mello says, is the act of seeing. But in that act of seeing that love is born. Anthony De Mello was the director of the Sadhana Institute of Pastoral Counseling in Poona, India, and authored several books. The Way To Love is his last.

   If you're only going to read ONE book a year, make it this one
It's just that I carry this book in my car, in a ziploc bag. I've fallen in love with this book and its characters all over again. Yes, I can quote sections, just because I have read it so many times. Now on my third copy, I make a small notation of where I am while reading it. Its combination of small stature and massive spiritual punch makes this a perfect book. It's actually helping me a lot, because I feel so happy, she said.
   outstanding book!
nan this is the type of book that you read it again and again and you find or discover something new inside you everytime. You have to analyze what is being said most of the time.
   Life changing, but why pocket size?
THE FORMAT OF THE BOOK IS BOOK SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR''. I'm buying that one. I am not Christian, a Jesuit, a Buddhist, a Muslim, or Taoist. Yes, I am all these things and none of these things. My favorite books are The Buddha's Way, by Osho, A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle and Awareness by Anthony de Mello. The new book, "The Way to Love Meditations for Life," by Sandra Day O'Connor, is now available in bookstores. Copy paste that into the Amazon search bar.
   My Favorite Book
It's hard to pick just one favourite book of all time. I re-read it and found it to be very useful. It's always with me at all times to pick it up, even if it's just for a moment.
   The Way to Love
The book arrived in perfect condition, said Ragin. This book is a treasure - small enough to carry in a purse or briefcase - a great go-to book throughout the day, even on the go. I have given a few as gifts, hope to give more, he said.
   This is the most amazing book! It has changed my life and made ...
This book is by far the most amazing. It has changed my life and made a better person, McCartney said. I am reading it as a daily devotion. It is written by a Jesuit priest and has scripture as the chapter titles, but I think non-Christians would still love it, he said. What he writes about is buddhist in nature, letting go of outcomes that make us feel anxious, Bruno says. In turbulent times, I think it is a relevant book.
   Content is great, whatever batch I got had binding issues. Chapters repeated, chapters missing
I got to page 83, but the next page was 54. Then the next page was 114 or somewhere around there. I just set things up to return this book and have it replaced with the exact item, so will I have the same problem?
   No solution to the human predicament
Human nature calls for a certain degree of compassion, said de Mello. I've said it before and I'll say it again: He does so beautifully and simply. What a relief to find that Dr. Goin had abandoned the problems of being human. It seems to me that he was influenced by Siddhartha Gautama's philosophy, especially Buddhism, and this book has the same shortcomings as the teachings of Buddha there is no remedy to the sufferings of the world. Once I realize that his book offered no real solutions, I could read it no further. He said: "If you want to learn how to read, Arthur Schopenhauer suggests that you read 'The Odyssey' by George Frid.
   Proceed Only When Ready
Yes, I was ready, Mr. Dhaliwal said. I had been navigating codependency and trying to control people for years, and I was tired, too. Anyone who is exhausted from trying to force themselves and their attachments into a mold they blindly accepted long ago will find this book useful. Just be ready to change your own beliefs and really sink into Mello's message. Journeying through the book helped me process it.
   Just great
Love de Mello and all his writings, he writes so clearly and lucidly, just finished my second read of this one.
