Am I glad that I read Sanjays review or else it would have been another of those books that would never have seen the light of day, well with me anyway. This book comprises pages of stories, tales and parables that all in their own way leave an explicit message. They are written for everyone regardless of whether or not they are religious and they certainly encourage ones own dreams and choice of direction in life, and even more importantly a spiritual search.
The author What a gem of a book! The author Anthony De Mello has stressed that he is first and foremost a priest in the Catholic Church, even though he has been influenced by non-Christian and non-religious mystical traditions. Regardless of your slant on life there will be many stories to charm you and bring otherworldly and heavenly ideas to the fore.
They certainly made me question whether there is another world or a different dimension that co-exists with ours. When I closed the book, I recalled the comment made by the author on how to read this book: When you read the book for the first time, read the stories in the order in which they are set down.
The order imparts a teaching and a spirit which will be lost if the stories are read haphazardly. I had indeed initially been tempted to read some stories out of sequence within the book as the titles rather appealed to me. So dead you are. The eaglet hatched with the chickens and grew to be like them.
He clucked and cackled; scratched the earth for worms; flapped his wings and managed to fly a few feet in the air. Years passed. One day, the eagle, now grown old, saw a magnificent bird above him in the sky. It glided in graceful majesty against the powerful wind, with scarcely a movement of its golden wings. For a mother to read these to her children should be a treat for everyone.
