Overview

"This is your wake-up call! You may not have even realized you were sleep-walking. Most of us are most of the time. Awareness is an eye-opener. It's Anthony de Mello telling you gently but firmly, 'It's time to get up now.'" --Charles Osgood of "CBS Sunday Morning" and "The Osgood File"

"Awareness will be the critical test of American business in the next decade. I call it the 'business of awareness.'" --F.X. Maguire, Hearth Communications Group


The heart of Anthony de Mello's bestselling spiritual message is awareness. Mixing Christian spirituality, Buddhist parables, Hindu breathing exercises, and psychological insight, de Mello's words of hope come together in Awareness in a grand synthesis.

In short chapters for reading in quiet moments at home or at the office, he cajoles and challenges: We must leave this go-go-go world of illusion and become aware. And this only happens, he insists, by becoming alive to the needs and potential of others, whether at home or in the workplace.

Here, then, is a masterful book of the spirit, challenging us to wake up in every aspect of our lives.

This book awakened me to all my ill-conceived notions about so many things. Anthony deMello skillfully walks the reader through what it means to be 'aware' - to truly perceive reality. No book I have previously read has had such a profound influence on the way I view things. This book is a perfect companion to deMello's other powerful book, 'The Way to Love.' No writer, for me, has so astutely captured 'truth' in such an intellectually honest way. Reading this book WILL change one's life, and one's perception of everything.

In this book Tony DeMello reveals a straight-forward practical explanation of Eastern Philosophy by explaining the inherent paradoxes in clear Western Christian language. This is without doubt the best book I've read in explaining what can often be perplexing and confounding. The Tao Te Ching now makes perfect sense, the Zen Analects clear as glass but more in important this book after the 10th reading makes clear that I'm responsible for the suffering in my life and I need to Awake to that reality and choose to live responsibly.

Anthony de Mello S.J. was a prophet for our time. His stories and insights reach into the hearts of his listerners. He paints a compelling picture of faith and life that is tangible and achieveable. Reading his work is a blessing.

Awareness is a must read for everybody especially those who are ready to go deeper into their spirituality. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and it has helped me in many ways.

This is a must read for everyone, no matter what your religious beliefs, or non beliefs, for or against. It is life changing. Awareness, I prefer to call it spirituality is not only life affirming, but feels good.

Very insightful reading. I think back and try to use the lessons in this book on a daily basis. It plants seeds for understanding a complex world and achieving personal tranquility in simple and sometimes biting language. It got my attention

I've been asleep lately. I can't wait to read this again and relive that painful yet beautiful process of waking up. This book made me feel so free. It realigned my reality and taught me joy.

If I could reccomend one book to a person,it would be either Awareness or Jonathan Livingston Seagull (richard Bach);depending on how open their mind was. After reading this book, I've read 4 of his other books,and plan on getting all of them

Written in the 1980's, de Mello's thoughts inspire some of today's best known people inspirers, change facilitators and spiritual guides - including Eckhart Tolle, Byron Katie and others.
