In more than two hundred parables/lessons encompassing related themes of living life fully yet simply, de Mello's examples are filled with a wisdom that cannot be conveyed in ordinary human speech. Rooted in the spirit of the Gospel and spanning the mystical traditions of East and West, this stimulating volume--like all the author's previous books--is intended to enliven our faith and free us from whatever imprisons our mind, body, and soul. ONE MINUTE WISDOM will lead from sense to sensitivity, from mood to meaning, from thought to feeling. For, as de Mello writes, "Wisdom can come without the slightest effort--in the time that it takes to open your eyes."
Whatever your religious persuasion--or even if you have
no religious beliefs at all--you will find in these pages needed and helpful direction in the ongoing process of self-discovery and the satisfying riches that lie deep within you.
