Item Description...
Overview
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.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Little Disappointing  Feb 28, 2007
I am not very religious or spiritual, but I like to think. This book does challenge people to think and try a a different approach to your relationships with people and nature. A common theme in this book is detachement from prior ways of thinking and relying on your inner self to achieve your own happiness. However, as I was reading this I kept thinking that one would have to take an almost nihilistic approach towards relationships with others in order to achieve this happiness. It just didn't seem practical. I found some parts of the book interesting and worth a deeper look, but I can't say this book will do much for me in my everyday life. I'm aware that a book like this will speak to everyone differently. Maybe I missed. Maybe I'm too far gone. Maybe I was so impressed with Awareness, another De Mello book, that this one failed in comparison. It's worth a look, but a little too idealistic..... in my opinion
 
A mini course on awareness, or seeing with different eyes  Jan 16, 2007
I found this book a good book if you are ready to challenge yourself to see differently. Anthony points out quite dramatically ( and sometimes too often ) that the way we see ourselves and others, is a direct function of our prior existence. Our perceptions are not even our own, but rather formed from our experience with our parents teaching, our culture, our religion, and life in general. He challenges us to see the whole picture, and provides exercises in that venture. This is a good book for those ready to take on a new self, or at least to understand themselves for what they are.

Books by Wayne Dyer and Deepak Chopra could be beneficial to read alongside this book for those looking towards spiritual growth.
 
The Way to Love by A. de Mello  Nov 2, 2006
A book I carry with me everywhere, I have purchased copies for friends and family. A must for anyone needing true spritual guidence and a true view of love.
 
The Key To Happiness!  Aug 16, 2006
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.

Feel Troubled By The 'Real' World? Take Heart...  May 21, 2006
If you feel troubled by the "real" world - take comfort. In his final meditations, Anthony De Mello reminds us that it is all an illusion. Whenever I feel like it's all too much for me I open up The Way To Love. In this beautiful, tiny volume you will find larger than life inspiration. This book can and will change your life.

Here's my favorite quote from the book:

"...every time you strive to improve on Nature by going against it, you will damage yourself, for Nature is our very being. It is as if your right hand were to fight your left hand or your right foot were to stamp on your left foot. Both sides lose and, instead of being creative and alive, you are locked in conflict. This is the state of most people in the world.

Take a look at them: dead, uncreative, stuck because they are locked in conflict with Nature, attempting to improve themselves by going against what their nature demands. In a conflict between Nature and your brain, back Nature; if you fight her, she will eventually destroy you. The secret therefore is to improve on Nature in harmony with Nature."
