Overview

Can you imagine how liberating it would be to never be disillusioned again, never be disappointed again, never feel let down again? Want to wake up, come alive, and be free? Anthony De Mello’s Stop Fixing Yourself is the answer you have been looking for.

The question Anthony De Mello’s Stop Fixing Yourself poses and successfully answers is: Can you attain enlightenment without the slightest effort on your part? Spiritual seekers exhausted from years of fruitless striving might well sigh deeply and think, “If only that were true.” Well, Anthony De Mello asserts it is true. Stop Fixing Yourself: Wake Up, All Is Well provides the simple path to living an enlightened life.

De Mello tells us that if you are watchful and awake, all that is false and neurotic within you will drop away and you will begin to live increasingly from moment to moment in a life made whole and happy and transparent through awareness. Awareness transforms you from a seeker to a finder, opening your eyes to the reality of the love, peace, and beauty that has always surrounded you. Awareness will set you free.

In Stop Fixing Yourself, De Mello’s down-to-earth teaching method helps you discover true awareness, releasing the divinity all around you and making your life meaningful, beautiful, and prosperous.
