Did you know that most of us might think that we are awake, but we actually sleepwalk our way through our entire lives, and that this is the reason so many people are unhappy? Luckily, there is a way to wake up, and Father Anthony de Mello explains how. By becoming aware, we learn to question our beliefs, which leads to greater awareness, and a profound happiness that can only be achieved by walking the road less travelled. This book is called Awareness: Conversations with the masters, and it’s a real eye opener.

We all sleepwalk though our lives even though most of us don’t notice it


The reason many of us struggle to be happy is that deep down, we don’t really want to


Let go of “me” and begin to focus on “I” to be happy


Happiness comes from awareness because awareness sets us free


To become more mindful, we must practise self-observation

Anthony de Mello was an Indian Jesuit Priest known throughout the world for his writings and spiritual conferences. Born in Mumbai, India, he became a Jesuit priest at the early age of 16, which gave him the opportunity to travel to various different countries, including Spain, and the United States, where he also became a psychotherapist. His experience of different cultures and religions inspired him to write about the connection between Eastern and Western spirituality. In 1998, his approach and opinions were declared incompatible with the Catholic faith by Pope Benedict XVI. Nonetheless, his books are still appreciated by religious and non-religious people worldwide, and Awareness is one of the most widely acclaimed on the subject. Anthony de Mello passed away suddenly in 1987, aged 56.
