Book Description

31 Jan 2000

"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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life changing? Yes. 18 Nov 2008
I have not finished reading this little gem. Its all about your awareness and how we learn to become a free person. Typically, our awareness is clouded by others' expectations and by our desires to escape the perceived unpleasantness of the present moment. In order to free ourselves from the desires and escapism we need to be aware; de Mello's book is a classic (and still unsurpassed) manual that guides us into the conscious universe where we can finally heave a sigh of relief and start enjoying this great gift of life. And it is surprisingly simple.

2.0 out of 5 stars Please stop shouting! 12 Aug 2009
A passionate lecture demanding that you "wake up" and unclutter your life/attitudes to discover the true essence of being. Just not a world view I warm to. Seemed bleak and sad to me though the author would absolutely believe it is the opposite. Easy read (if you don't mind being hectored). Worth reading partly to find out whether the vision works for you ( it certainly does for some people I know) or failing that for the great store of good stories and jokes.

I ordered two copies of this book - one for myself and one for my brother in law. He highly recommended it. I have not read it yet, but he couldn't say enough about what an eye-opener it is so I'm really looking forward to reading it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awareness 2 July 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
What a refreshingly easy, cut to the chase, no nonsense read. As so clearly stated by the author, consciousness can't be understood by anyone not experienceing it. It is not to seek after it, so much as to learn to let go of the ego, easier said than done. But if ever a book inspired me to at least have a go, this one has!
