Heart of the Enlightened

Heart of the Enlightened

"Said the river to the seeker: 'Does one rather need to be troubled approximately enlightenment? regardless of which method 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 predict that the single means out is via unending striving and considering.

But this profound healer and non secular grasp indicates us differently. The middle of the Enlightened, the sequel to the hugely profitable Taking Flight, includes greater than 2 hundred of de Mello's favourite tales. no matter if Buddhist stories, Hindu fables, Islamic sayings, or Christian parables, the tales de Mello has selected are certain to seep via to the guts. They contact on relationships, human nature, provider, spirituality, and enlightenment. those are tales to be learn slowly and savored. they're the most important to freeing us from all that will pen us in.
