Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:
