wisdom from anthony de mello. sj

“Both what you run from-
and what you yearn for –
are within you.”

–Anthony De Mello

This is from a book called “Taking Flight.”
But there is a book he wrote, that has become the most important book in my life. I have read it maybe 6 times over the past 8 years. And now I realize, that was hardly enough. I understand it more, on a deeper level each time.
I cannot recommend it enough.
“Awareness” by Anthony De Mello

Here is his Wiki

and here is an org devoted to his work.

    Interesting. I’ll look for it when I get to a book store next time. Love the quote. Thanks!! I love what Terces Engelhart said in her blog : So where in your life are you challenged right NOW? How could you take those exact same CIRCUMSTANCES and create an opening, A NEW POSSIBILITY, for yourself?
