Book Description

A companion to Anthony De Mello’s all-time bestselling work of inspiration, Awareness.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshingly Insightful 18 Oct. 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is a transcript of a retreat or workshop that Mr de Mello presented shortly before his death. It is excellent and is the sort of presentation that one is likely to read many times over the course of one's life. It is, as another reviewer has said, a clear revelation of how we have been taught to be unhappy, by being conditioned to react in a negative and often distressing way to people and events in our daily life. Fundamentally this is all based upon craving and attachment and to resistance and aversion, perhaps best exemplified by our desire for approval or, at the very least, for the avoidance of disapproval.
The book is a very effective accompaniment to two other superb books by the same author - 1) Awareness and 2) The Way To Love. It is a must-read!

This is one of those precious books invaluable to anyone who really wants to see life as it is. To make you aware of how indoctrinated you are. How brainwashed. And how to free yourself of all this brainwashing. How to come back in tune with life as it really is. Strong stuff!
