In these two inspiring recordings, John Callanan really captures the essence and spirit of Tony de Mello, who was a great teacher who constantly challenged himself, the world within which he lived and those he came into contact with.
De Mello said that our security does not lie in thoughts or ideas, no matter how profound. Neither does it lie in traditions - no matter how hallowed. Security can only reside in an attitude of mind and a readiness to reflect deeply.
Callanan examines different types of meditation and fantasy prayer; styles of reflection that De Mello used with his audiences; getting life into focus; pain and failure in our lives. These recordings are an attempt to give those who search, those who think and those who suffer, some food for thought.
