Heart of the Enlightened

Heart of the Enlightened


"Said the river to the seeker: 'Does one quite need to be anxious approximately enlightenment? regardless of which means I flip, i am homeward bound.'" --Anthony de Mello

We are like bears pacing in a cage, Anthony de Mello says. no matter if the cage is got rid of, we maintain pacing within the related timid limits. we're afraid to get out. And we expect that the single approach out is through never-ending striving and considering.

But this profound healer and non secular grasp exhibits us otherwise. The center of the Enlightened, the sequel to the hugely winning Taking Flight, comprises greater than 200 of de Mello's favourite tales. even if Buddhist stories, Hindu fables, Islamic sayings, or Christian parables, the tales de Mello has selected are guaranteed to seep via to the center. They contact on relationships, human nature, carrier, spirituality, and enlightenment. those are tales to be learn slowly and savored. they're the main to freeing us from all that may pen us in.
