The Song of the Bird

"Every one of these stories is about YOU." --Anthony de Mello Everyone loves stories; and in this book the bestselling author of Sadhana: A Way to God shares 124 stories and parables from a variety of traditions both ancient and modern. Each story resonates with life lessons that can teach us inescapable truths about ourselves and our world. De Mello's international acclaim rests on his unique approach to contemplation and ability to heighten self-awareness and self-discovery. His is a holistic approach, and in the words of one reviewer: "his mysticism cuts across all times and peoples and is truly a universal invitation." The Song of the Bird uses the familiar yet enduring medium of the story to illustrate profound realities that bring us in touch with the problems and concerns of daily life, as well as with our common spiritual quest. The aim is to develop the art of tasting and feeling the message of each story to the point that we are transformed. "Let the story speak to your heart, not to your brain," the author directs. "This may make something of a mystic out of you." Enhanced by lovely ink drawings, this is indeed a volume to treasure, to share, and to read many times over, for it is everyone's best companion on the road to spiritual growth.

When the esteemed local judge makes frequent use of the gallows, attempting to bring law and order to Arkansas in the 1880s, Hattie frequents the executions, vehemently opposing the sentences and offering comfort to the condemned. Labeled as deplorable, Hattie lives on the outskirts of ordinary society with her unlikely lover, an outcast in his own right, and her self-made, unconventional family. Hattie is determined to help the people who are often neglected, in her own unique way. After surviving a tragic childhood, Hattie forged her own path, found a man she dares to love with her whole heart and lives according to her own moral compass.
