Spirituality means waking up. Do you want to wake up? If so, you've come to the right place.

About the Anthony De Mello Community

The Anthony De Mello Community is a place where we can come to help one another remember and enliven the very essence of what we are, going beyond the false ideas society stamped into us about who we should be, what we should want, and how the world should be. This platform extends opportunities to strengthen in one another a powerful vision for life, one that is clear, unclouded by fear and free of attachments and addictions.  The platform facilitates a ceaseless awareness of all the good that is in us and surrounds us, together with a growing understanding of what blocks the experience of it. 

What good things?  The love of work which you enjoy doing for the love of itself.  The love of nature.  The love of laughter and intimacy with people to whom you do not cling and on whom you do not depend emotionally but whose company you enjoy. The love of activities done with your whole being that while you’re engaged in them success, recognition, and approval simply do not mean a thing to you.  This platform is a place for actualizing this powerful vision. 

Who is Anthony (Tony) De Mello. Tony was a Jesuit priest born in Bombay, India in 1931. He is widely acknowledged for integrating western and eastern spirituality and he has been a seminal influence for some of our era’s most respected spiritual teachers, including Eckhart Tolle, Rhonda Byrne, Adyashanti, Thomas Moore, and Paulo Coelho.  De Mello's 11 books including his masterpiece Awareness continue to have impact beyond his untimely death in 1987.  They have been translated into 21 languages and at last count have sold more than 2 million worldwide.

Why Join Us?

To remember to remember the essence of what you are by dispelling the false beliefs about yourself that society programmed into you. As the poet Rumi said, Our task is not to seek for Self, but merely to seek and find all the barriers that have been built against it.  This platform extends opportunities to strengthen in one another a powerful vision for life, one that is clear, unclouded by fear and free of attachment and addictions.  

How would we ever get there? By a ceaseless awareness of all the good qualities that are in you and all around you.

What good qualities? The love of work which you enjoy doing for the love of itself.  The love of nature.  The love of laughter and intimacy with people to whom you do not cling and on whom you do not depend emotionally but whose company you enjoy. The love of activities done with your whole being that while you’re engaged in them success, recognition, and approval simply do not mean a thing to you.  

Who doesn't want to live like that? This platform is a place where we can support one another in actualiing this vision.

Living Happily

The human heart is a miracle.  When open the heart makes one feel as if it will be be springtime forever.  When all the concepts,  conditioning, addictions and attachments that society programmed into us are gone; we’re free. Then the heart comes to life; then we understand what freedom is, what love is, what happiness is, what reality is, what truth is, what God is. Then you don’t have to take it on faith anymore. 

You see it; you’re different. You react differently. In fact, you react less and act more. You see things you’ve never seen before. You lose your tension, your fear of failure, your stress about succeeding. You are at last yourself. Relaxed. You're no longer driving with your brakes on. That’s what happens when the heart opens fully and opening hearts is the mission of this platform.
