The Way to Love
The Last Meditations of Anthony De MelloPaperback - 1995
The Way To Love contains thenbsp;nbsp;final flowering of Anthony de Mello's thought, andnbsp;nbsp;in it he grapples with the ultimate question ofnbsp;nbsp;love. In thirty-one meditations, he implores hisnbsp;nbsp;readers with his usual pithiness to break throughnbsp;nbsp;illusion, the great obstacle to love. "Lovenbsp;nbsp;springs from awareness," de Mello insists, sayingnbsp;nbsp;that it is only when we see others as they arenbsp;nbsp;that we can begin to really love. But not only mustnbsp;nbsp;we seek to see others with clarity, we must examinenbsp;nbsp;ourselves without misconception. The task,nbsp;nbsp;however, is not easy. "The most painful act,"nbsp;nbsp;de Mello says, "is the act of seeing. But innbsp;nbsp;that act of seeing that love is born." Anthonynbsp;nbsp;De Mello was the director of the Sadhana Institutenbsp;nbsp;of Pastoral Counseling in Poona, India, andnbsp;nbsp;authored several books. The Way To Love nbsp;nbsp;is his last.
