Product description

From the Inside Flap

"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.

From the Back Cover

The Way to Love contains the final flowering of Anthony de Mello's thought. Here, more than ever before in his bestselling writing, he grapples with the ultimate question of love. In thirty-one meditations, each several pages long and each preceded by a Gospel quotation, 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 the other as he or she really is that we begin to love. The second act of love, he says, is seeing ourselves without illusion - without the coercive nature of our needs, desires, memories, prejudices, and projections. If these steps are taken, then love will steal upon a person or into a relationship. But the task is not easy. "The most painful act the human can perform", de Mello says, "is the act of seeing. It is in that act of seeing that love is born". These are meditations to be savored and shared. This is a book - in a handy gift sizeto be held close to the heart.

Although this little book is titled "The Way To Love," it could also have been called "The Key To Happiness," because the real key to happiness is contained here. And what is that key? To let go of the idea that anything outside of yourself can make you happy. This book contains many inspiring messages. But above all, it focuses on the idea that happiness is your innate state, and you can choose to return to that state at any time. This little book inspires deep contemplation, and I recommend that you read it repeatedly.

Wow! This book explains, much more clearly than "Awareness" and linked in with the teachings of Jesus, how to be happy. In fact, it claims that you really are happy - and you just let other things get in the way of that. That sounds a little crazy, but it works! It really works ... the path to happiness is here, if you have the courage to drop your addictions, your attachments ... and truly love!

I'm not sure everyone would "get" this book, but everyone should read it.

Format: Paperback
Thirty one brief chapters, provide 20 to 30 minute meditations which can be used every day if desired over a month. Anthony De Mello's Eastern wisdom combined with his Jesuit background give an interpretation on the " Way to Love " which is so different and enlightening compared to any other Christian theologian I have read previously.Although each mediation is based on a Biblical verse , the content is accessible by anyone from any religious or humanist background. Pocket sized , one can carry it through the day to use at any appropriate moment. I keep revisiting it and gain something new every time. As De Mello's last meditation ,it is in my opinion his best
