Awareness by Anthony De Mello

I was recently given a book called Awareness by Anthony De Mello. It was given to me in the hope that it would open my eyes to the world and perhaps even lead me to some kind of spiritual awakening.

Now, I am lucky enough to say that this new experience was not due to tragedy or trauma; I lead a charmed life filled with friends, family and security but I firmly believe that everyone could do with a mental health check up from time to time. So to start the year right, here are the things I learned in therapy:
