If I had to recommend one book on life, this would be it. The title is “The Way to Love” but I think “The Path to Freedom” would be more accurate. De Mello explains with perfect clarity how our attachments and beliefs make us miserable, but that the way to escape them is not to renounce them but to become aware of them. Once the awareness sets in, the attachments will fade away. Ignore the bible passages if that's not your thing (it isn't mine); this isn't a religious text. It's a book about finding yourself.
