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.

Lists with This Book. Oct 13, Courtney rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: This is one of the more personally challenging books I’ve ever read.
It made me think I wanted to sit down and argue with this guy. I didn’t like how it was written. I didn’t like what he said about people and selfishness and being and love, but I can’t stop thinking about it. The more time passes, the more I think thiss asshole is on to something. View all 6 comments. Oct 15, Tom LA rated it it was ok. Just look at you all. Fretting about, worrying, stressing about everything But hey, I have the key to take all of your stresses away!
Look closely in my eyes, though, because before you have the chance to ask me what that key is, and why I’m not explaining it properly to you, I’m going to slam a little cute story in your face that is going to distract you from the fact that I have actually just told you nothing at all”.
I’m giving “You guys are such idiots. I’m giving this trickster’s book 2 stars and not only 1 because there are some snippets, here and there, of interesting, good stuff mainly the quotations from the Fathers of the Church. The vast majority of the book’s pages, however, are filled with vague, KahlilGibrany, NewAgey, PauloCoelhoey banalities and platitudes.
De Mello sometimes hits at some profound spiritual concepts, sourcing from induism, buddhism and christianity, but it’s all done in a very simplistic, conversational and superficial way.
Mostly, he keeps blurting out empty slogans like a Jesuit Tony Robbins: He will write sentences like “One of the signs that you’ve awakened is that The horror, the horror! His main missteps are his over-rationalization of life and his posing as the wise guru. Here is a perfect example: I said to her “My dear, last year over a million people starved in China because of the drought, and you never raised a question”.
Thank the Lord there and then his sister didn’t have quick access to a flame-thrower! I bet he was a very charismatic individual to be in the same room with. But this book is wishy-washy, bland tripe. View all 4 comments. That’s a good one I’m going to remember.

De Mello, espousing no religious agenda, contends we’ve been brainwashed as to our typical ideas of love and happiness.
This untypical priest–his writings were denounced by the Pope–says our attachments, illusions, conditioning and general unawareness keep us anxiety-ridden. The consequence of not doing this is terrifying and unescapable. We lose our capacity to love.
If you wish to love, you must learn to see again How can you love someone whom you do not even see? Do you really see someone you’re attached to? Oh, what a relief. You no longer feel the need or the compulsion to explain things anymore. Jan 07, Anita Louise rated it it was amazing.

Ach rated it liked it Shelves: Destroy their beliefs, no matter what they are. Tell them how miserably they are leading their lives, what scoundrels and idiots they have been. Yes, people love to hear that. A perfectly happy person would seldom pick-up a spiritually enlightening book. Ask them tough questions. What is life’s goal? You don’t have to offer any intellectual answer.
Just ask the questions and say “nay” to the fragmented answers. Now, tell them the things they already know, in a suave manner, with lots of funny anecdotes that they can relate to or laugh about. And finally conclude with something like, “Live in the present. Don’t think about the past. That gives the hope to people who still believe that there is much more to life than the wretched mechanical life they are clinging on to. If you have already read J Krishnamurthy or Osho’s books, you can safely avoid this book.
And if you haven’t read those books, then read those first.
