Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.

"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.

Customer Product Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5★ by 1reviewer.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by None Better Anthony de Mello gives a multitude of short stories that continue to bring new senses of understanding when read again and again. I followed his recommendation and only read a few at a time to let the readings sink in deeper and deeper as I meditate on them. If you are a seeker, and a thinking individual, you will be completely amazed at how a simple statement can cause such immense thoughts to envelop your whole sense of being. 02/20/2013
