Энтони Де Мелло — католический священник, писатель, монах-иезуит, психотерапевт, мистик.

Его книги о духовности стали широко известными, во многом благодаря тому что его работы являются простыми, легко доступными для любого читателя. В своих книгах синтезировал притчи восточных народов, учения христианства, буддизма, индуизма, а также анекдоты, рассказы о Ходже Насреддине и прочее. Его духовные мысли были несколько спорными для догмы католицизма, главным образом потому, что многие из них родились под влиянием восточных мировоззрений, преимущественно буддизма. Несмотря на неприятие многих христианских теологов, его работы стали популярными в том числе, и даже прежде всего, среди христиан, особенно среди заинтересованных в изучении духовности Святого Игнатия , поклонником Духовных Упражнений которого был Де Мелло.


„Я хочу повесить карту мира у себя дома, и воткнуть булавки во все места в которых я был. Но сначала нужно будет съездить в два верхних угла карты, чтобы карта не упала со стены.“

„Если ты думаешь, что являешься тем, кем тебя считают твои друзья и враги, значит, ты себя плохо знаешь.“


„Иногда безопаснее идти в своей собственной темноте, чем в чужом свете.“

„Каждый волен нести вздор. Главное — не делать это с серьёзным видом.“

„Perfect love casts out fear. Where there is love there are no demands, no expectations, no dependency. I do not demand that you make me happy; my happiness does not lie in you. If you were to leave me, I will not feel sorry for myself; I enjoy your company immensely, but I do not cling.“ Awareness: Conversations with the Masters

„As soon as you look at the world through an ideology you are finished. No reality fits an ideology. Life is beyond that. … That is why people are always searching for a meaning to life… Meaning is only found when you go beyond meaning. Life only makes sense when you perceive it as mystery and it makes no sense to the conceptualizing mind.“

„These things will destroy the human race: politics without principle, progress without compassion, wealth without work, learning without silence, religion without fearlessness, and worship without awareness.“

„‎"I have no fear of losing u, for you aren't an object of my property, or anyone else's. I love you as you are, without attachment, without fears, without conditions, without egoism, trying not to absorb you. I love you freely because I love your freedom, as well as mine.“


„You see persons and things not as they are but as you are.“

„People mistakenly assume that their thinking is done by their head; it is actually done by the heart which first dictates the conclusion, then commands the head to provide the reasoning that will defend it.“

„When you are guilty, it is not your sins you hate but yourself.“ One Minute Wisdom

„The philosopherwas eating bread and lentils for supper. He was seen by the philosopher, who lived comfortably by flattering the king. Said, '.'

Said [author:Diogenes|3213618, 'Learn to live on lentils and you will not have to be subservient to the king".“


„Wisdom tends to grow in proportion to one's awareness of one's ignorance.“ One Minute Wisdom

„Happiness is our natural state. Happiness is the natural state of little children, to whom the kingdom belongs until they have been polluted and contaminated by the stupidity of society and culture. To acquire happiness you don't have to do anything, because happiness cannot be acquired. Does anybody know why? Because we have it already. How can you acquire what you already have? Then why don't you experience it? Because you've got to drop something. You've got to drop illusions. You don't have to add anything in order to be happy; you've got to drop something. Life is easy, life is delightful. It's only hard on your illusions, your ambitions, your greed, your cravings. Do you know where these things come from? From having identified with all kinds of labels!“ Awareness: Conversations with the Masters

„If what you seek is Truth, there is one thing you must have above all else.” “I know. An overwhelming passion for it.” “No. An unremitting readiness to admit you may be wrong.“

„When you get rid of your fear of failure, your tensions about succeeding... you can be yourself. Relaxed. You'll no longer be driving with your brakes on.“
