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.

„Happiness is not something you acquire; love is not something you produce; love is not something you have; love is something that has you.“

— Anthony de Mello
Context: Understand the obstructions you are putting in the way of love, freedom, and happiness and they will drop. Turn on the light of awareness and the darkness will disappear. Happiness is not something you acquire; love is not something you produce; love is not something you have; love is something that has you. "The Land of Love", p. 172

„Wake up! That's what repent means. Not "weep for your sins.": Wake up! understand, stop all the crying. Understand! Wake up!“

— Anthony de Mello
Context: Do you know what eternal life is? You think it's everlasting life. But your own theologians will tell you that that is crazy, because everlasting is still within time. It is time perduring forever. Eternal means timeless — no time. The human mind cannot understand that. The human mind can understand time and can deny time. What is timeless is beyond our comprehension. Yet the mystics tell us that eternity is right now. How's that for good news? It is right now. People are so distressed when I tell them to forget their past. They're crazy! Just drop it! When you hear "Repent for your past," realize it's a great religious distraction from waking up. Wake up! That's what repent means. Not "weep for your sins.": Wake up! understand, stop all the crying. Understand! Wake up! "The Illusion of Rewards", p. 43

„Wisdom comes to those who learn nothing, unlearn everything.
That transformation is the consequence not of something done, but of something dropped.“

— Anthony de Mello
Context: The Master insisted that what he taught was nothing, what he did was nothing. His disciples gradually discovered that Wisdom comes to those who learn nothing, unlearn everything. That transformation is the consequence not of something done, but of something dropped. Purification

„When your excessive eagerness to teach has left you.“

— Anthony de Mello
Context: A zealous disciple expressed a desire to teach others the Truth and asked the Master what he thought about this. The Master said, "Wait." Each year the disciple would return with the same request and each time the Master would give him the same reply: "Wait." One day he said to the Master, "When will I be ready to teach?" Said the Master, "When your excessive eagerness to teach has left you." Aggression

„The Master in these tales is not a single person. He is a Hindu Guru, a Zen Roshi, a Taoist Sage, a Jewish Rabbi, a Christian Monk, a Sufi Mystic. He is Lao-tzu and Socrates; Buddha and Jesus; Zarathustra and Mohammed.“

— Anthony de Mello
Context: The Master in these tales is not a single person. He is a Hindu Guru, a Zen Roshi, a Taoist Sage, a Jewish Rabbi, a Christian Monk, a Sufi Mystic. He is Lao-tzu and Socrates; Buddha and Jesus; Zarathustra and Mohammed. His teaching is found in the seventh century B. C. and the twentieth century A. D. His wisdom belongs to East and West alike. Do his historical antecedents really matter? History, after all, is the record of appearances, not Reality; of doctrines, not of Silence. Introduction

„I have good news and bad news for you, my friend.“

— Anthony de Mello
Context: "What can I do to see Reality as it is?" The master smiled and said, "I have good news and bad news for you, my friend." "What's the bad news?" "There's nothing you can do to see — it is a gift." "And what's the good news?" "There's nothing you can do to see — it is a gift." p. 152

„To teach fools like you to stop wasting their time worshiping Masters.“

„Death is resurrection. We're talking not about some resurrection that will happen but about one that is happening right now.“

— Anthony de Mello
Context: One of your American authors put it so well. He said awakening is the death of your belief in injustice and tragedy. The end of the world for a caterpillar is a butterfly for the master. Death is resurrection. We're talking not about some resurrection that will happen but about one that is happening right now. If you would die to the past, if you would die to every minute, you would be the person who is fully alive, because a fully alive person is one who is full of death. We're always dying to things. We're always shedding everything in order to be fully alive and resurrected at every moment. The mystics, saints, and others make great efforts to wake people up. If they don't wake up, they're always going to have these other minor ills like hunger, wars, and violence. The greatest evil is sleeping people, ignorant people. "The Death of Me", p. 150

„The day you follow someone you cease to follow Truth.“

— Anthony de Mello
Context: To a visitor who asked to become his disciple the Master said, "You may live with me, but don't become my follower." "Whom, then, shall I follow?" "No one. The day you follow someone you cease to follow Truth." Discipleship

„The Master was allergic to ideologies.“

— Anthony de Mello
Context: The Master was allergic to ideologies. "In a war of ideas," he said, "it is people who are the casualties." Later he elaborated: "People kill for money or for power. But the most ruthless murderers are those who kill for their ideas." p. 7
