Reviews - What do customers think about Walking on Water?
Insightful Jan 27, 2010
Anyone who wants to live life without all the nonsense their thoughts often add to it should study this book. DeMello poses questions to the reader that cause one to step back and reconsider his or her interpretation of events and their responses. This book is not for those who think they know it all...
It needs to be read multiple times. Jan 12, 2010
This book is so good and so packed with insight, you really need to read it 3 times or more. May our arms tire to drop all we are carrying....
Very Nice! And listen to the live CDs of de Mello! Feb 27, 2009
The Title captures it all, Possibilities; the ability to know the "I" and to take the next Step which the world calls Miracles.
I also recommend higher than this, de Mello's Live Conference "Wake Up to Life" on audio cd. This is a Powerful Program, the only full-length Conference he allowed to be recorded.
Also Profound are his films, "A Rediscovery of Life" and "A Way to God for Today." De Mello's teachings are relevant, timely and I hope one day, in every home....
Look at the Moon, not the finger! Apr 11, 2000
I consider myself very privileged to have joined the year-long Maxi-Sadhana, directed by Tony, at Poona in 1976, together with Carlos Valles, S.J. and 16 other priests and nuns. I also had joined a number of Tony's retreats and conferences. Tony had the special gift in touching so many lives and was instrumental in their transformation. After more than 25 years, I continue to find sustenance in his writings. This book, translated from the Spanish, is an excellent introduction to Tony's recurrent themes on being free from illusions and any fixed ideas of God, self and the world. He is like a Zen master, guiding people to enlightenment through anecdotes, stories and practical meditative exercises. The fundamental and universal human aspirations for: peace, happiness, life, freedom, love, prayer, liberation, spirituality and healing are all responded to in these conferences. You can dip into any page and find much nourishment. This is true of all his writings, tapes and videos--if you relate to him with the awareness of one's hunger and poverty of spirit and not trying to scrutinise him for doctrinaire orthodoxy. Do not mistake the finger which only points to the Mystery and Source which can never be fully conceptualised as the Moon. May all his readers share the blessings and liberations that I have personally experienced through coming into contact with Fr. Anthony de Mello.
