Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000008470
The field of quantum possibility, in which love has opened doors otherwise unimaginable, is our soul's true habitat. The world of fear and limitation is not our home, and who among us is not profoundly weary of hanging out where we do not belong. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000008500
Beyond drama and chaos, beyond anxiety and fear, lies a zone of endless peace and love. Let's all take a very deep breath, slow down for just a moment and remember this. That alone will open the door ... -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000011040

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000011045
I went into therapy several times, but it rarely made an impact. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000012729
The work of intimacy, of course, is to learn to both show your own illumination, and to see it in a way that the physical eyes cannot reveal. In a way that only the heart can reveal: the illumined beauty in another person. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000015982
I do believe 50 is the new 40 and 60 is the new 50. Hell, maybe 60 can be the new 40, I don't know. I believe that when we give ourselves permission, we can live with an excitement and heat and passion that most women in previous generations were unable to attain. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000021378

Dear God, I surrender this relationship to you," means, "Dear God, let me see this person through your eyes." In accepting the Atonement, we are asking to see as God sees, think as God thinks, love as God loves. We are asking for help in seeing someone's innocence. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000022246
The power of nonviolence is not circumstance-specific. It is as applicable to the problems that confront us now, as to problems that confronted generations in the past. It is not a medicine or a solution so much as a healing process. It is the active spiritual immune system of humanity. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000023873
Since our peace lies in loving as God loves, we must strive to love everyone. Our desire to find one "special person," one part of the Sonship who will complete us, is hurtful because it is delusional. It means we're seeking salvation in separation rather than in oneness. The -- Marianne Williamson

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000045453
In the hands of the ego, marriage is a prison. It is exclusive. It is a place where people are constantly reminded of their failures and limited by the energies of another person. It is rife with judgment and blame. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000047893
Of course, a woman's choice to go out into the world is a very significant thing. But part of real liberation is recognizing that mothering is every bit as important as other kinds of work. I actually believe it's more important than anything we do out in the world. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000051561
To appeal to God is to appeal to the action of universal love. Love never fails to come when we call to it, but it will always seem to fail us when our bidding is self-centered. The most powerful prayers are simply for God's will to be done, because God's will is healing for all living things. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000051606
because only love is real. It is our function to see through the illusion of guilt, to the innocence that lies beyond. "To forgive is merely to remember only the loving thoughts you gave in the past, and those that were given you. All -- Marianne Williamson

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000061226
Life is a book that never ends. Chapters close, but not the book itself. The end of one physical incarnation is like the end of a chapter, on some level setting up the beginning of another. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000062157
Some people think it's naive to think we can make love our new bottom line. What I believe is naive is thinking human civilization as we know it will survive another two hundred years if we do not. -- Marianne Williamson

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000062353

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000070366
In every advanced mammalian species that survives and thrives, a common anthropological characteristic is the fierce behavior of the adult female of the species when she senses a threat to her cubs. The lioness, the tigress and the mama bear are all examples. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000071926
When love isn't in our lives, it's on the way. If you know that a special guest is coming at five o'clock, do you spend the day messing up the home? Of course not. You prepare. And that is what we should do for love. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000072954
What we really need to avoid is this epidemic of false positivism and false happiness, which says if it hurts, it must be bad. Sometimes it hurts because you have a conscience. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000075271
Take stock of your thoughts and behavior. Each night ask yourself, when were you negative when you could have been positive? When did you withhold love when you might have given it? When did you play a neurotic game instead of behaving in a powerful way? Use this process to self-correct. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000080356
Many times in life, we say we want change but are then terrified when the opportunity for it arrives. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000085886

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000093776

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000094985
Personal growth can be painful, because it can make us feel ashamed and humiliated to face our own darkness. But our spiritual goal is the journey out of fear-based, painful mental habit patterns, to those of love and peace. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000094993
Often on a journey of spiritual transformation, that is ultimately what heals the pain: the veil is removed from in front of our own eyes and we see where we had been thinking thoughts that would inevitably lead to pain. Until we change those thoughts, the pain will remain. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000095021
The spiritual journey, the path of recovery and personal growth, is a detoxification process in which we bring up and out the negative beliefs we have carried with us from the past and that now poison the present. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000095022
The spiritual journey has to do with learning to think more deeply and take as long a time as we need. That's the path to wisdom. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000095889
The love
that saves us
is not a love that might come to us in the future,

to whomever is around us
right now. -- Marianne Williamson

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000104913
We are so trained in the thought system of fear and attack that we get to the point where natural thinking - love - feels unnatural and unnatural thinking - fear - feels natural. It takes real discipline and training to unlearn the thought system of fear. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000110209
Once you reach a certain age, you're either slowly dying or slowly being reborn. I want to choose the latter. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000114682

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000114853
Angels are thoughts of God
to pray to an angel is to look to a level of pure thinking, divine thinking, and to ask that it replace our thoughts of fear. (Page 27.) -- Marianne Williamson

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000118146

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000118791
The way of the miracle-worker is to see all human behavior as one two things: either love, or a call for love. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000119043
The power to rethink a situation is our greatest tool for transforming the world. This notion is taking hold in medicine, in business, in education. But not in politics and the media. They are the last holdouts of old-paradigm thinking. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000120544
No matter what I go through today, I need not fear. For God is all-powerful and God is here. I am never separate from the One who created me. There is nothing I can do to make Him turn his face away from me. I am loved, I am cared for, and I am totally safe in the arms of God. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000120569
In the area of work and money, we have one of the most intense gaps between fear-based and love-based thought. It's not that a miracle mindset applies to work and money any more than it applies to anything else; rather, it applies there no less than anywhere else. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000120590
Until we see love as the meaning of life, life seems to have no meaning at all. The sense of meaninglessness produces chaos, and the chaos produces fear. There is only one way out of this, and that is to see every moment and every situation as an invitation to love. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000125082
Love is about letting go of the fears that stand in front of our hearts. -- Marianne Williamson

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000129490

The moment of surrender is not when life is over. It's when it begins. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000133297

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000136852
I think future generations will see the invention of the Internet as having been as important as the invention of the printing press. It's the democratizing tool of all tools. As long as no one can control the flow of information, then freedom always has a chance. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000138316
For what we engage, we transform. And what we engage with our hearts is transformed forever. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000138329

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000139370
It's soul force that removed the English from India. It's soul force that brought down the Berlin Wall. It's soul force that gave life to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s struggle for civil rights. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000140374
As difficult as it can be to find genuine inner calm, it is the key to creating peace in the world as we know it. The world will not change until we do, and there is nothing the world can deliver to us that will give us the peace we crave. Peace comes not from the world, but from God. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000152581
Painful experiences are not meant to linger. They are meant to teach us what they need to teach us, and then dissolve. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000152753
My ego mind - my own self-hatred masquerading as self-love - would point me always in the direction of fear, luring me toward the blaming thought, the attack or defense, the perception of guilt in myself or others. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000153754
you dig deep enough into your mind, and deep enough into mine, the picture is the same: at the bottom of it all, what we are is love. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000155916

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000157064
Our problem is not that we don't have power, so much as that we tend to not use the power we have. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000158208
There is, inside all our heads, the ego's rabid attack dog. It is purely vicious toward others and toward ourselves as well. Learning to control that dog, and ultimately to end its life, is the process and purpose of enlightened relationships. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000160315
I trust life not because I trust the world, but because I trust the God who lives in my heart. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000160739

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000167844
We find our happiness to the extent to which we use our minds to bless the world, for that is the natural use of the mind. It is the reason we were born. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000167854

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000171696

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000172222
Newtonian physics is over. You don't act on the world to change the world. You realize the world is a projection of your inner self. If you change, the world changes. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000173771
Dear God, Please remove from me All falsity and illusion, That I might be a shining example Of a person Set free from fear. Amen. -- Marianne Williamson

Better than I was yesterday.
But hopefully
not as good as I'll be tomorrow. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000184730

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000185572
When you've written 10 books and have six on the New York Times best-seller list - and four have been No. 1 - I think you have a right to be a member of Congress. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000185640
You are completely at choice who you will be today in your interactions with others. Compassionate, kind, giving and forgiving will create one set of probabilities; angry, judgmental, critical and defensive will create another one altogether. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000186422
We need not wait for the world to become more mystical; the world is mystical. Our problem is not that the world lacks magic; our problem is that we don't believe in its magic. We do not show up fully for life, and then wonder why life is not showing up more fully for us. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000194141
We need adventure, we need meaning, we need identity. We need love. Someone who has seen us through loving eyes has awakened us from the ranks of the formerly dead. Most people bear the terminal stress of walking the world unseen, a mere number or cog in a lifeless machine. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000194356
There is no greater gift to future generations than that we do the work God has asked us to do: love one another, that the world might be made right. -- Marianne Williamson

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000196677
All of us wish we'd had perfect childhoods, with a mother and father who modeled ideal parental attitudes and taught us to internalize the tenets of self-love. Many of us, however, did not. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000196913
Looking for Mr. Right leads to desperation, because there is no Mr. Right. There is no Mr. Right, because there is no Mr. Wrong. There is whoever is in front of us and the perfect lessons to be learned from that person. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000198231
The only feelings you really need to fear are those you ignore. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000199246
Politics is in a crisis because it's separated from our deep humanity. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000200007
I personally am not a total pacifist. I do believe there is such a thing as a just war. I believe, for instance, the effort to destroy the Nazi regime militarily was justified military action. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000200980
Every relationship either gives energy to us or withholds energy from us, according to what we give to or withhold from it. And it's not only our behavior toward others, but our very thoughts about them, that builds and/ or destroys relationships. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000201365
The purpose of daily prayer is the cultivation of a sense of the sacred. Sacred energy renews us. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000201681

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000204902

Love does not conquer all things, but it does set all things right. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000212805
I believe the Israelis have been wronged, but they also have a lot to apologize for. And I believe the Palestinians have been wronged, but they have a lot to apologize for, as well. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000216847
There is no such thing as a faithless person.' Faith is an aspect of consciousness. We either have faith in fear or we have faith in love, faith -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000224219
The Real You isn't damaged goods. The Real You is the light of the universe. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000224514

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000228253

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000228646

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000228801
Liberation also means that even though I'm a woman I have masculine parts of my temperament which I can safely explore and integrate into my experience. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000231393

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000231442

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000235220
We can invoke spiritual compensation when we find ourselves in situations of material lack. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000235778
I realize that the curriculum is my life on any given day. At this point, more than anything, my spiritual path means looking at every circumstance and trying to see my part in where it's good and where it's not so good. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000236850
Just like a sunbeam can't separate itself from the sun, and a wave can't separate itself from the ocean,
we can't separate ourselves from one another.
We are all part of a vast sea of love, one indivisible divine mind. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000239284

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000243776

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000245578
America is a great country, and we've done a lot of good in the world. But we are a collection of people, not saints. We have our own sins to atone for. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000245703
The ego mind both professes its desire for love and does everything possible to repel it, or if it gets here anyway, to sabotage it. That is why dealing with issues like control, anger, and neediness is the most important work in preparing ourselves for love. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000249589
Don't go to work to make money; go to work to spread joy. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000252516
Once you get to your forties or fifties in this society, very few people haven't had at least one body blow - financial, bankruptcy, divorce, relationship disaster, addiction, trouble with a child, trouble with a parent. Most people take some blow. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000255717
The heart's transformation is not attained through the mind - it's attained through surrender, authenticity, forgiveness, faith, honesty, acceptance, vulnerability, humility, willingness, nonjudgment, and other characterological values that have to be learned and relearned continuously. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000256802
God's truth is literal truth. The illumined mind has more operative cells. In reclaiming the mystical, we take back our whole selves. Formerly barren mental lands spring to new life through the planting of spiritual seeds. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000256977
Many people say they're looking for love, yet they're actually committed to never finding it. Many people would really rather not know the true scars and triumphs of the person who lies in their arms. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000257431
Only love can bring us peace. And the experience of love is a choice we make, a mental decision to see love as the only real purpose and value in any situation. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000258315
We need more than a new politics; what we need is a new worldview. We need a fundamentally different bottom line. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000258751
The return to love is hardly the end of life's adventure. It's the real beginning. A course in miracle says we think we have many different problems but we really only have one: denying love is the only problem and embracing it is the only answer. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000262725
Love has a way of showing you to yourself, whether through satisfaction or humiliation. It hovers over you like a magnifying glass you cannot escape, intensifying the slightest feelings of either delight or shame. No other experience makes so obvious the realities of both heaven and hell. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000263029
Motherly love - putting the care of children before every other consideration - is the ultimate intelligence of nature. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000266493
We were taught that things like grades, being good enough, money, and doing things the right way, are more important than love. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000267620
To me, liberation doesn't mean that I can think just like a man. Real liberation means that I can think, act, and be like a woman and receive equal respect, honor, and compensation. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000268308
you keep trying all your old tricks, the ones that never did work but that you keep thinking might work this time. Once you've had enough and you can't do it -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000268426
Spiritual principles do not change, but we do. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000269513
You're not to wallow, but if you don't process your regrets, then they remain emotional underground toxins. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000269892
I conquered outer worlds just as he had. I expressed masculine strength and power just as he had. But it didn't bring me closer to him or to others like him because I had become one of the guys, and that's not what most men are looking for. He had never loved me for being a great guy. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000271055
The gap is not between knowing it and living it, it's between knowing it and living it consistently. You know, we've all had moments when we got it right. Most of us have moments when we get it right every day. The trouble is getting it right when a curve-ball comes at us. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000271728
The whole Obama phenomenon brings up memories from my distant past: the good-looking guy who talks real good, whose line you don't buy immediately but whose charm is so dazzling that he gradually convinces you that this time it will be different. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000272891
Experience is necessary for us to grow. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000275876
You can learn a lesson the first time, when it's presented in a package that is joyous - or at least palatable. But if you don't learn the lesson the first time, then there will be a second time and a third time. And each time it will just get harder and harder. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000277362
We have great power to affect the attitudes and behavior of the people around us, at work and at home. We have the power to set a tone of honor, to create an energy around ourselves that says, 'I respect myself. I respect you. Let's respect each other.' -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000279726
Generation after generation can't just be loaded with more and more nuclear weapons and not ultimately dance to that music. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000281859
Once the Western mind was disconnected from its sense of divine responsibility and genuine reverence towards nature, all hell broke loose. And that's where we are. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000284979
Love is everywhere, but if our eyes aren't open to see it, we miss out. Who among us hasn't missed out on love because we were looking for it in one package and it came in another? Our problem is rarely a lack of love so much as a mental block to our awareness of its presence.* -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000287314
Gender or skin color does not of itself determine the nature of a person's thinking. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000290573
When it comes to politics today, the devils' not in the details; the devil's in the big picture, more often than not just hiding in plain sight. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000292525
The enlightened world will be one in which everyone is in love with everyone all the time. We will see each other as God created us: as the perfect, loving, and lovable people we really are. The purpose of romantic love is to jump-start our enlightenment. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000293975
You've done the bourgeois thing, perhaps, but let's not call that love. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000295048
God isn't a noun but a process ... a continual, infinitely creative outpouring of love and light onto all living things. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000298240
Spiritual progress is like detoxification. Things have to come up in order to be released. Once we have asked to be healed, then our unhealed places are forced to the surface. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000298243
Spiritual progress is like a detoxification. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000299105
To trust in the force that moves the universe is faith. Faith isn't blind, it's visionary. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000299998
When the heart is pierced, there is pain, yes, but also an invitation to a greater becoming. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000302774
To be truly seen and understood - in all our innocence and glory and yes, our brokenness, too - is to be delivered into the spiritual ethers where both seen and seer are healed. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000303148
But when we ask Him to change them, He will. When we're angry, or upset for any reason, we're asked to say, "I'm angry but I'm willing not to be. I'm willing to see this situation differently." We ask the Holy Spirit to enter into the situation and show it to us from a different perspective. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000303708
It's like avoidance behavior in therapy - wanting to share the gossip but not wanting to deal with the real, more painful issues. Of course we want to avoid the pain. But by doing so, we inevitably cause more of it. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000305639
I fell in love with the thought that a human life could be a priestly conduit, a connecting link between earth and sky. As I grew and stumbled and, most important, as I began to love and be loved, I realized that the ultimate priest is the lover inside us -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000306157
People hear you on the level you speak to them from. Speak from your heart, and they will hear with theirs. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000312612
When a woman gives birth, two are born: a baby from the womb of its mother and a woman from the womb of her former existence. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000314386
Envision possibility. Don't worry who else believes in it; the universe is only looking for instructions from you. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000315369
Spiritual growth involves giving up the stories of your past so the universe can write a new one. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000316195
The undue influence of money on our politics is like a cancer underlying other cancers, the issue underlying all other issues. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000318033
We aren't bodies at all; who we are is the love inside us, and it is that love alone that determines our value. When our minds are filled with light, there is no room for darkness. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000319764
Give all your gifts away in service to the world. If you want to paint, don't wait for a grant, paint a wall in your town that looks drab and uninviting. You never know who is going to see that wall. Whatever it is you want to do, give it away in service to your community. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000319829
We have forgotten who we ourselves are. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000322873
A threat to our freedom is a threat to our freedom, whether from a terrorist or from a trade deal. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000323615
We receive His peace when we ask Him for it. We keep His peace by extending it to others. Those are the keys and there are no others. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000325999
Love is not neutral. It takes a stand. It is a commitment to the attainment of the conditions of peace for everyone involved in a situation. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000328332
Love is a hero's journey, and the hero's journey is a noble but difficult path. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000328701
I see the universe as naturally and infinitely self-correcting. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000329723
The world as we know it is falling apart at the seams, because it's an inadequate container for the truth of who we are. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000331890
Romance is one of the sacred temples that dot the landscape of life. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000332415
People on a spiritual path - personal growth, spiritual practice, recovery, yoga and so forth - are the last people who should be sitting out the social and political issues of our day. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000332676
We live in a world of easy friendships - people here for you when it's easy, 'so-sorry-but-I-have-an-errand-to-do-now' when it's not. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000334103
You know what we need to heal are the thought forms and the feelings that cause us to create war and mass destruction on this kind of a level, because ultimately if we are to survive as a species, we have to become a human race for whom the thought of war is unthinkable. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000334230
At midlife, you're pregnant with the best self you can be - someone who has learned enough from both successes and failures to add up to a fine human being. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000338737
I've never seen service as separate from my spiritual practice or my spiritual teaching. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000338828
We tend to lack humility toward love, to patronize it rather than bow before it, to put mundane considerations before the emotional need to hold someone in our arms. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000346075
We must keep in mind that where the road is crooked, God makes it straight, and where our hearts are wounded, God makes us whole. As we open our hearts in purity and simplicity, admitting to God that we are completely powerless in the area of our problem, His illumination redeems us. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000346815
You can't 'work through worry and fear rationally,' because fear isn't rational! -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000347076
A lot of us simply disengaged from politics altogether, but then we woke up and went wow, wait a minute. Why does that insane conversation get to dominate? Who made those people the creators of the conversation? And how can we start a new one? -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000350415
The only work that will ultimately bring any good to any of us is the work of contributing to the healing of the world. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000351538
Genuine transcendence doesn't just look away from human suffering and say, "I am at peace, so I'm at the mountaintop." Genuine transcendence looks human suffering in the eye and attains peace because of a faith in things unseen. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000356050
So many of us have not attended to the deeper issues in ourselves; in our minds, our hearts, and in our external manifestations that keep love at bay. We instead concentrate on making a list of what we're looking for in another person. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000356336
The beauty of personal authenticity can compensate for the lost beauty of our youth. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000358214
There should be an expanded role in this society for every human being. I see an expanded role for the human spirit, for excellence, for virtue, and for creativity - within women, and within everyone. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000359076
The world is in trouble. Many have prayed. God sent help. God sent you. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000359722
Enlightened people don't have anything we don't have. They have perfect love inside, and so do we. The difference is that they don't have anything else. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000359895
For every person who might reject you if you live your truth, there are ten others who will embrace you and welcome you home. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000360388
Every ending is a new beginning. Through the grace of God, we can always start again. (Page 120.) -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000362304
I'm haunted sometimes by the thought, what if we lived from that place all the time? What if we went there without tragedy striking first? The very thought of who we would be together, and the kinds of collectives decisions we would make. The kind of world we'd create makes me want to cry sometimes. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000363297
I do know middle age can bring greater depth, greater wisdom, greater capacity for love, greater capacity for relationship, greater consciousness and desire to serve and awareness of the fate of mankind - all these wonderful things, yes. And I know I'm getting there. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000364065
Your personal power is not something that is going to reveal itself at some later date. Your power is a result of your decision to reveal it. You are powerful in whatever moment you choose to be ... -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000364155
Presidential campaigns are exhausting. Once they're over, we all heave a sigh of relief that we have our lives back, the constant emails and news reports no longer harangue us, and the topic even turns at times to something else entirely. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000368625
Do what you love.
Do what makes your heart sing.
And NEVER do it for the money,
Go to work to spread joy. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000370140
Environmentally, the planet will not sustain the kind of abuse it receives at our hands. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000370767
We do not heal the past by dwelling there; we heal the past by living fully in the present. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000374103
Relationships are the Holy Spirit's laboratories in which He brings together people who have the maximal opportunity for mutual growth. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000374157
We live in a world of constant juxtaposition between joy that's possible and pain that's all too common. We hope for love and success and abundance, but we never quite forget that there is always lurking the possibility of disaster. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000374203
God is love. We were created in His image, or mind, which means that we are extensions of His love. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000375835
There is one God. The Jews and the Christians have no monopoly on God. I'm speaking about the same God the Hindus talk about, the same God the Muslims talk about, the same God that the Taoists and the Confucians talk about. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000377259
If we do not like what we see in the world, we must face what we don't like in ourselves. As we change, the world will change with us. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000379674
We can't look to the world to restore our worth; we're here to restore our worth to the world. The world outside us can reflect our glory, but it cannot create it. It cannot crown us. Only God can crown us, and he already has. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000381722
You are free to experience life negatively or positively, and the choice you make determines whether you are at cause, or at effect, of the life you are living. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000381909
Self-awareness is not self-centeredness, and spirituality is not narcissism. 'Know thyself' is not a narcissistic pursuit. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000384997
Never think you can separate who you are from what you're doing. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000387410
When we choose to love, or to allow our minds to be one with God, then life is peaceful. When we turn away from love, the pain sets in. And whether we love, or close our hearts to love, is a mental choice we make, every moment of every day. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000389420
Often faith isn't hoping that good times are coming; it's trying to see that the good times are here. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000389704
Your character defects are not where you're bad, but where you're wounded. But no matter who or what causes the wound, it's yours now and you're responsible for it. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000391051
Our past is a story existing only in our minds. Look, analyze, understand, and forgive. Then, as quickly as possible, chuck it. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000391953
People don't live in Los Angeles because we are tied to the same old, same old. We live in Los Angeles because of the intoxicating energy of new beginnings that permeate our city. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000392291
Forgiving the past means remembering the love there, and releasing all the rest as the illusion that it really was. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000392295
Forgiveness is "selective remembering" - a conscious decision to focus on love and let the rest go. But the ego is relentless - it is "capable of suspiciousness at best and viciousness at worst. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000393434
Enter any moment devoid of agenda, with an absence of posturing, and with your only intention being to send love to everyone you meet or even think of ...
Happiness, miracles and inner peace will follow. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000393476
In the absence of love, we began slowly but surely to fall apart. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000398030
The moment that our real "issues" are exposed is simply when two people have the opportunity to go deeper, to explore further, to heal faster, to communicate more sincerely, to be more honest, and to love more truly. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000399305
What emerges from the silence is the deafening sound of an old world disintegrating. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000402419
Again
nothing you do or think or wish or make is necessary to establish your worth. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000403163
Things don't spiral out of control when we surrender them; they spiral out of control when we try to control them! -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000405879
Our religious institutions have far too often become handmaidens of the status quo, while the genuine religious experience is anything but that. True religion is by nature disruptive of
what has been, giving birth to the eternally new. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000407889
Trust is very hard if you don't know what you're trusting. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000410566
Prayer is the medium of miracles; in whatever way works for you, pray right now. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000410611
If our prayer is "Dear God, please use me to be of service," then that is what we will be. And it is not for us to judge either the size or value of our gifts. Our job is to try to get out of the way, to defer to the spirit moving within us and become open channels for the flow of God's love. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000413243
Miracles are happening all the time, but if your eyes aren't open and your ears aren't open and your mind's not open and your heart's not open - then even though the miracles are there - you're not! -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000413868
Spend the next few days preparing for the year ahead: Forgive everyone, let go of everything, let God take charge.
Amen. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000415392
I have a gruff side. This is not exactly news ... At the same time, anyone who wants to judge me for this can walk a mile in my moccasins. And then we'll talk. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000416295
I think moral outrage is born not of anger but of love. It comes from the highest in us, not from a low-level sense of anger or cynicism. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000418558
Our power lies in remaining nonreactive. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000418797
We need to recognize that part our political problem is that we do not participate effectively, that we suffer from a kind of mental slumber. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000421245
Whatever situation you're in: Send love, place it in God's hands, open your heart to everyone involved - and it will turn out miraculously. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000421965
There's only one of us here: What we give to others, we give to ourselves. What we withhold from others, we withhold from ourselves. In any moment, when we choose fear instead of love, we deny ourselves the experience of Paradise. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000425154
Inner peace doesn't come from getting what we want, but from remembering who we are. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000426064
People are not perfect - that is, they do not yet express externally their internal perfection. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000429887
The only real problem is a lack of love. To address the world's problems on any other level is a temporary palliative - a fix but not a healing, a treatment of the symptom but not a cure. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000429908
Each of us has a unique part to play in the healing of the world. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000429911
The practice of forgiveness is our most important contribution to the healing of the world. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000430474
I'm proud to say I was part of a movement in which we sang 'All You Need Is Love' at political rallies. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000432377
We may have bad weather in Ireland, but the sun shines in the hearts of the people and that keeps us all warm. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000433181
The wicked stepmother, which is the ego, can put the Sleeping Beauty or Christ within us to sleep, but she can never destroy it. What is created by God is indestructible. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000436239
Our challenge is to not look away, but rather to transform the field; to create a new political conversation, our own conversation, out of which we can speak our truth in our own way. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000443698
People sometimes see an image and without knowing the surrounding patterns draw false conclusions. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000444455
Truth will always reassert itself, given a symbolic three days. Three days represents the time it takes between the crucifixion and the resurrection, between an open-hearted response to hurt and the experience of rebirth that will always follow. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000445849
The issue is that we, with our fears, our attacks, our judgments, our blame, and our constant emphasis on the realm of the body rather than the realm of love, eclipse the experience of true love. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000447040
Ultimately, my daughter is not going to learn from what I do, not from what I say. For better or for worse. I see that everyday. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000447909
I think there is a place where self-awareness becomes self-preoccupation if you don't take what you have discovered and bring it to bear on the conditions of the world. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000450531
Of course things might have gone roughly in the past, but the past is over and cannot touch you unless you hold on to it. Right now, in this moment, the universe is responding not to your past but to the truth of who you are, always were, and always will be. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000450855
Next time you're about to judge someone, attempt to understand them instead. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000451101
Your relationship with love is your relationship with the essence of who you are. It affects your relationship with your body, and your relationship with food. When you realize that you are a spirit and that this body is a temple, then you want to treat it well. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000451827
Your life shows up for you when you show up for your life. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000455193
The reason so many of us are obsessed with becoming stars is because we are not yet starring in our own lives. The cosmic spotlight isn't pointed at you, it radiates from within you, -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000455949
You will fear the darkness only to the extent that you yourself are not providing light. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000457472
love requires a different kind of "seeing" than we're used to - a different kind of knowing or thinking. Love is the intuitive knowledge of our hearts. It's a "world beyond -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000458909
After decades of declining influence on the affairs of the world, there is once again a widespread consideration of spritual principles as an antidote to the pain of our times. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000459711
The universe is an infinite opportunity creation machine. In every instant, the possibility of greater possibility is programmed into the nature of things. Love creates the conduit through which new possibility enters our experience, and lovelessness keeps it at bay. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000461007
You receive the light through what you read, through what you hear in meditation, or through some spiritual practice. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000461493
Don't think small and expect to have a big life. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000464848
Every heart has a divine intelligence and natural guidance system. With every prayer, every meditation and every thought of love, we tune in to ours. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000464878
I deepen my experience of God through prayer, meditation, and forgiveness. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000464880
So it is that a new politics centers around the arousal of that power, using prayer and meditation to create a force field of transformation. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000464888
Each of us is born with an internal navigational system. The thinking of the world has a way of switching the system off, but we can always turn it on again through prayer, meditation and forgiveness. Doing this puts us back on track in our lives, making us wise, convicted and powerful. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000464893
A primary goal of the spiritual life is to learn to quiet the mind through prayer and meditation, through spiritual practice, so that we can hear what in both Judaism and Christianity, is called the small, still voice within. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000466627
In every community, there is work to be done.
In every nation, there are wounds to heal.
In every heart, there is the power to do it. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000468688
Anytime you try to be a loving person, you're doing your part to save the world. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000469177
When you understand the law of divine compensation, you realize that in the presence of spiritual consciousness, there is more than enough compensation for any diminishment in materiality. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000474116
I think optimism is a moral imperative. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000474724
Because mind is Cause and the world is Effect, we change the world by changing the thoughts we think about the world. -- Marianne Williamson

The miracle often lies outside our comfort zone. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000475344
We need to shift from an economic organizing principle for human civilization, to a humanitarian organizing principle. Making money more important than your own children is a pathological way for an individual to run their affairs, and it's a pathological way for a society to run its affairs. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000480977
Jesus is a personal symbol of the Holy Spirit. Having been totally healed by the Holy Spirit, Jesus became one with him. Every thought, action, and deed of Jesus was guided by the Holy Spirit instead of ego. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000483091
When infants aren't held, they can become sick, even die. It's universally accepted that children need love, but at what age are people supposed to stop needing it? We never do. We need love in order to live happily, as much as we need oxygen in order to live at all. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000483711
Kennedy's assassination was the opening salvo in the social revolution of the sixties. In some ways, perhaps, Princess Diana and Mother Teresa dying when they did, and how they did, represent the opening salvos of a social revolution in the nineties. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000484538
There's no reason to think that you'll be capable of loyalty to a diet until you address your basic disloyalty toward yourself. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485135
The shift from fear to love is a miracle. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485347
If you think there's something you need in order to be happy, then you believe in lack. Then believing you lack, you will create more lack. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485351
Do not fear. Look beyond what's dying to what's being born. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485352
If anything is naive and lightweight, it's the traditional political conversation. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485353
Sometimes it's easier to love people when there is a healthy distance between us. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485355
When you understand spiritual law, then you realize that everything you give, good or bad, will in fact come back to you tenfold and that's just the way it is. You give someone flowers and the person you are ultimately giving to is yourself. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485356
Spiritual growth increases our sense of what's possible. And as we sense new possibility, we can step into that possibility. With every word, every thought, every action, we choose what we wish to call forth in life. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485357
First there was the word. A Course in Miracles says that prayer is the "medium of miracles." It's the realm of thought where we are aligned with the thought of God and therefore in a co- creative mode. It's where we surrender our minds to His mind and become empowered. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485358
Once we truly understand that God's will is that we be happy, we no longer feel the need to ask for anything other than that God's will be done. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485359
But remember, there's only one of us here: What we give to others, we give to ourselves. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485360
The speed of change today is faster than the human psyche seems able to handle, and it's increasingly difficult to reconcile the rhythms of our personal lives with the rapidity of a twenty-four-hour news cycle. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485361
If you have a longing in your heart to hear a deeper truth, there's a mysterious way in which that truth will find you. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485362
The fact that people in Hollywood are open to what I teach is not because they're more desperate than anyone else, but because they're more touched by it. That's not their weakness. It's their strength! -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485364
In 'Healing the Soul of America,' I wrote about Gandhi's notion of soul force in politics and why it matters to stand on your truth. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485365
It's a fraction of the cost to prevent a war than prosecute a war. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485366
Prepare for the new; expect the new; embrace the new. Otherwise, you'll just repeat what's old. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485367
There are other kinds of emotional pain that emerge from our own mistaken thinking. As we surrender that pain, we are inviting into our thought system a guide who will lead us to different thoughts. It's like the song "Amazing Grace": I was blind and now I see. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485368
I think it's unfortunate how many people today try to build up their own careers by denigrating the work of others. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485369
Religion is like a map. The route isn't important. It's the destination that matters. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485371
It is your thoughts and your thoughts alone that determine what's possible for you now. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485372
Humanity's mission is to find a peace that lies beyond the veil - a peace that is not of this world. The peace that is not of this world is not dependent on human circumstances. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485373
In our society, as people pass out of young adulthood, they tend to relate to themselves more in terms of what they are no longer than what they are now, and that's psychologically low-grade devastating. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485374
To the extent we are perceiving anyone's guilt -choosing to focus on the errors of their personality rather than the eternal innocence of their spirit - we're closing our hearts, deflecting a miracle and causing our own inevitable suffering. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485375
Your future isn't programmed by your past; it's programmed by your thoughts. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485376
The love is what's left at the end because it's the bedrock, fundamental reality that gets hidden all the time, but never really goes away. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485377
Spiritual growth is like childbirth: you dilate, then you contract, you dilate, then you contract again. as painful as it all feels, it's the necessary rhythm for reaching the ultimate goal of total openness. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485378
Trying to suppress or eradicate symptoms on the physical level can be extremely important, but there's more to healing than that; dealing with psychological, emotional and spiritual issues involved in treating sickness is equally important. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485381
When I went to college in the 1970s, the Women's Liberation movement was all the buzz. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485382
May I not be tempted by the darkness of the world to think that God is gone, or lured into the thinking of the world to ever doubt love's power. God is here, love is real, and I am safe. These things I know and will not forget. And so it is. Amen. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485383
The love in one of us is the love in all of us. 'There's actually no place where God stops and you start,' and no place where you stop and I start. Love is energy, an infinite continuum. Your mind extends into mine and into everyone else's. It doesn't stay enclosed within your body. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485384
It's the beginning of your day. You awake and look around you, feeling perhaps a joyful expectation, or perhaps an awful dread. No matter which, remember this: God loves you with an infinite love. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485385
With every prayer and every thought of love, we release
the light that will cast out darkness. One light alone seems
small and weak, but no one's light is ever alone, for all our
lights are part of God. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485386
Charisma is a sparkle in people that money can't buy. It's an invisible energy with visible effects. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485387
We were all born carrying a promise
a promise to make the world better
and there's a yearning to make good on that promise that none of us can suppress forever. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485388
There's nothing more powerful than a woman who knows how to contain her power and not let it leak, standing firmly within it in mystery and silence. A woman who talks too much sheds her allure. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485389
There's a certain je ne sais quoi that Americans have in spades - a we-can-do-anything spirit that makes so many things possible for all of us. We're rugged individualists, aspirational in nature, and we like to think for ourselves. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485390
I trust that when people meet, we meet for a transcendent reason, and that the challenges we face in life are always lessons that serve our soul's growth. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485391
It isn't courageous to go forth when you don't know the dangers. But it's very courageous to go forth when you do. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485392
It's very scary having something wrong with your head. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485393
I think that's what we all want on this earth - to feel that at some level we have connected with other human beings. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485394
The human race is almost addicted to war. It's like we just can't stop. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485397
What's dying is the frightened mind, so the love inside us can get a chance to breathe. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485398
A healthy, vital society is not one in which we all agree. It is one in which those who disagree can do so with honor and respect for other people's opinions ... and an appreciation of our shared humanity. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485399
Enlightenment is the only real antidote to the world's despair. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485400
Abraham Lincoln went through 12 generals before he got Ulysses S. Grant. He had never done a Civil War before. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485401
Once you know that every moment and every person and every situation has something to teach you, you're a student all day. You know it's the depth of your observation that is the issue - not how much the world has to show you. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485402
The ego is always looking to find something. The Spirit can see what's already there. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485403
The implication was that if you had any skepticism whatsoever, you were anti-science. I think there's a difference between having skepticism about science and having skepticism about the pharmaceutical industry. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485404
We must seek to be intellectually inclusive, just as we seek to be culturally inclusive. Ideas come and go - that's what makes a free society so vital. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485405
I try to be self-disciplined with my thoughts. It's our thoughts that matter most, and all the rest falls into line behind that: if I remember who I really am and why I'm on the earth, then I more naturally want to treat my body like a temple and so forth. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485406
When you carry yesterday's thinking into today, you program tomorrow to be like yesterday. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485407
My father's politics were old-fashioned in the sense that he used to say, all the time, "You've got to fight the system!" But my spiritual beliefs have led me to believe that the fight is the problem. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485408
We're hallucinating. And that's what this world is: a mass hallucination, where fear seems more real than love. Fear is an illusion. Our craziness, paranoia, anxiety and trauma are literally all imagined. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000485409
Think of everything you've ever experienced that was painful; that's the meaning of Good Friday. Think of all the ways that love ultimately healed your heart; that's the meaning of Easter. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000487750
There cannot be too many glorious women. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000487977
Citizens should be looked to for what they can give of their own nobility, virtue, creative thinking, passion, and natural talent for community building and relating to others. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000488843
I said to myself, Marianne. Next time you're down on your knees, why don't you just stay there? -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000493185
The miraculous power of love to create a context in which people naturally blossom into their highest potential. Neither nagging, trying to get people to change, criticizing or fixing can do that. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000493199
The highest prize we can receive for creative work is the joy of being creative. Creative effort spent for any other reason than the joy of being in that light filled space, love, god, whatever we want to call it, is lacking in integrity ... -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000493296
The voices of fear are so loud today. The voices of love should never shout, but neither should they whisper - not at a time like this. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000497846
The point of Jesus' existence wasn't to lessen or diminish our appreciation of each other, but to expand our appreciation of each other by reminding us what lies within all of us, because Jesus was an example of the pinnacle of human evolution. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000498798
There is no single effort more radical in its potential for saving the world than a transformation of the way we raise our children. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000504752
The world is terrified of joyful women. Make a stand. Be one anyway. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000507723

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000510235
In order to escape the illusion and find inner peace, remember that only love in a situation is real. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000510300
Partners are meant to have a priestly role in each other's lives. They are meant to help each other access the highest parts within themselves. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000511594
Old Newtonian physics claimed that things have an objective reality separate from our perception of them. Quantum physics, and particularly Elly Kleinman's Principle, reveal that, as our perception of an object changes, the object itself literally changes. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000511614
May my heart be your shelter, and my arms be your home. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000514274
The body IS a miracle, after all. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000514900
You don't have to be a spiritual seeker, you can be a businessman dealing with the revolution in computers. You could be a congressman, or a scientist. No matter what area of life and endeavor we are in we are seeing the signs of new-paradigm thinking. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000515592
Love, when it is a sacred quest, is a space of resurrection and repair. It does more than help us survive a soulless world; it helps us to transform. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000516885
Sometimes you are lifted up to the mountaintop as a gift from the universe, so you can see what is possible. Then you are put down back at the bottom: Now you have to earn it for yourself. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000517846
If I just want to 'start a conversation,' I don't need to run for office. As a matter of fact, it could be argued that many people are more open to hearing you if you're not running for office. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000519904
I don't think that anything that anyone is doing today that is being pointed at as the "enemy" or "the problem" is as dangerous to our future as the fact that there are so many pointed fingers. The pointed finger is the enemy. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000520109
Each of us has an inner room where we can visit to be cleansed of fear-based thoughts and feelings. This room, the holy of holies, is a sanctuary of light. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000520112
The love within us is meant to extend outward. The closer we grow to our inner light, we feel a natural urge to share it. We all long for meaningful work, some creative endeavor that will be our ministry, by which the energies within us might flow out to help heal the world. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000521781
I was very much a child of the 1960s. I protested the Vietnam War and grew up in a fairly politicized home. My father was like a cross between William Kunstler and Zorba the Greek. I grew up among left-wing lawyers. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000522210
In my first book, 'A Return to Love', I wrote about things in the outer world that need to change - how we need to ameliorate deep poverty, heal the earth, end war. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000522673

When God created the world, he didn't draw a line between Canada and America. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000535239
Forgiveness is the choice to see people as they are now. When we're mad at people, we're angry because of something they said or did before this moment. By letting go of the past, we make room for miracles to replace our grievances. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000538781
We are always impacting the world ... through our presence, energy, interactions - what kind of impact are we having? -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000541237
The real axis of social change is not horizontal, but vertical. We don't need a whole bunch of people gathering to think shallow thoughts together. What we need is for as many people as are ready to gather and think deep thoughts together. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000548091
The Founders didn't mention political parties when they wrote the Constitution, and George Washington in essence warned us against them in his Farewell Address. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000555480
If you are dealing with life from a low-level sensibility, the Internet can be a tool for manifesting that. But if you're dealing with life from the highest sensibility, it can also be your tool for manifesting that. The simple reason is that it doesn't cost money. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000555718
Seek more opportunities to put more love in the world. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000559993
While overeating would be seen by some as an indulgence of self, it is in fact a profound rejection of self. It is a moment of self-betrayal and self-punishment, and anything but a commitment to one's own well-being. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000561366
Just as you wouldn't leave the house without taking a shower, you shouldn't start the day without at least 10 minutes of sacred practice: prayer, meditation, inspirational reading. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000563825
Children are one of the greatest lessons in happiness, constantly challenging us to enjoy the moment, as the next one will not be the same. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000563855

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000565261
When we are centered in joy, we attain our wisdom. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000565449
No matter how sad we might be, the universe is still planning our happiness. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000566272
If our emotional stability is based on what other people do or do not do, then we have no stability. If our emotional stability is based on love that is changeless and unalterable, then we attain the stability of God. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000567296
Our kingdom is our life, and our life is our kingdom. We are all meant to rule from a glorious place. When God is on the throne, then so are we. When God is in exile, our lands are at war and our kingdoms are in chaos. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000567731
A Course in Miracles says that only love is real: The opposite of love is fear, but what is all-encompassing can have no opposite. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000569147
There is a dichotomy between people who feel economic principles should order human civilization and people who believe humanitarian principles should order human civilization. That essential disagreement is underlying practically all our world drama. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000569806
I feel that if your soul was branded by the sixties, you never lost the brand. It's like going into a nightclub and having your hand stamped so that you don't have to come back but you can come back. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000570760
There are people today who look to fear to take us out of fear. But I believe that there are many, many more people who would look to love. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000575605
Sometimes a miracle is a change in material conditions, such as physical healing. At other times, it is a psychological or emotional change. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000578053
Forgiveness is the key to inner peace because it is the mental technique by which our thoughts are transformed from fear to love. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000583101
When you realize that the real breakthroughs come from levels of higher consciousness, then you also realize that the achievement of maturity and wisdom is the most powerful generator of new beginnings possible. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000584432
Nothing that happened before this moment has any power over you whatsoever, except to the extent to which you carry it into this moment. Dwell in the present with full forgiveness of yourself and others, and your life will be lifted to divine right order ... perfection, prosperity and peace. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000585492
People who are meditating every day and involved in a serious spiritual practice don't usually wake up in the morning and want to rush out to eat a bunch of junk food. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000588221
Many people are despairing of the possibility of finding love. And some of the people who are despairing the most are in their thirties and forties and looking just great. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000589211
The worlds of Truth (love) and illusion (fear) are like parallel universes; with every thought we make a choice which one to inhabit -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000590616
Freedom has its risks. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000592118
God created the law of free will, and God created the law of cause and effect. And he himself will not violate the law. We need to be thinking less in terms of what God did and more in terms of whether or not we are following those laws. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000592195
As you get older, you have more and more layers of experience to forgive, more layers of heartbreak, more layers of what you might think of as failure. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000592776
whatever it is you choose to think, your subconscious mind takes it very seriously and your experience will reflect your thinking. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000594069
The universe is conspiring at this moment to bring you happiness and peace. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000596767
But the Holy Spirit is a force of consciousness within us that "delivers us from Hell," or fear, whenever we consciously ask Him to, working with us on the Causal level, transforming our thoughts from fear to love. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000600476
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000600485

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000605197
God is limitless in His love, and asks that we at least make the effort to be limitless in ours. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000607379
His correction of our perception is called the Atonement. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000614951
With every thought we think, we either summon or block a miracle. It is not our circumstances, then, but rather our thoughts about our circumstances, that determine our power to transform them. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000614956
Think of the mystical three days between the crucifixion and the resurrection as the time it takes for a situation to change once spirit has infused our consciousness. As we come to look at an experience differently, in time in begins to transform. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000614961
Enlightenment doesn't mean we were never wounded; it means we've found a way to evolve beyond our wounds. Enlightenment isn't idealistic; it's practical. What's idealistic is thinking we can live from our wounds, stay in our weakness, and ever transform the world. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000617407
The reason we don't often confront the larger question of whether or not war is survivable is because of a failure of imagination. We honestly cannot imagine having reached a state in our own evolution in which we do not fight. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000624577
I think the vast majority of Americans would have supported military action to stop the second plane from hitting the World Trade Center, if that had been possible. I would have been among them. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000624715
Our barriers to love are rarely consciously chosen. They are our efforts to protect the places where the heart is bruised. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000635088
When we are truly aware of our spiritual glory, a varicose vein or two is not that big a deal. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000641032

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000641286
There are four rules for miraculous work creation: Be positive. Send love. Have fun. Kick ass.
Amen. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000641374
Real liberation for men means that they can explore and integrate their feminine aspects of consciousness. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000643263
Our key to transforming anything lies in our ability to reframe it. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000646275
Growth is a detox process, as our weakest, darkest places are sucked up to the surface in order to be released ... often, it is not a change in partners but rather a change in perception that delivers us to the love we seek. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000646326
My biggest past mistakes have been when I made decisions out of ego rather than spirit. When I acted too quickly. When I wasn't contemplative or reflective or prayerful enough, and I ended up making what I would only later see to be unwise decisions. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000650463
In the Holy Relationship, it's understood that we all have unhealed places, and that healing is the purpose of our being with another person. We don't hide our weaknesses, but rather we understand that the relationship is a context for healing through mutual forgiveness. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000650945
The more you drop into your heart, the more God can drop into your mind. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000651490
Where you hadn't yet dealt with your shadows, you manifested shadowy situations. Broken parts of you encountered broken parts of others. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000653015
Yes, hardships come. But I see in my life and in the lives of others how often something that does not have to be held as a hardship is dealt with by the mind as though it is. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000658320
I have known healthy, wealthy people who were depressed, and people with critical illnesses who could honestly attest to joy. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000659021
The miracle is when you shift. The miracle is when you know there is no hill - you're removing the hill. The miracle is when you realize the time of physical decline can be a time of spiritual incline. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000660278
You are a child of God. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000661371
The 'Course in Miracles' says one day you will realize that death is not the punishment but the reward. And it says that birth is not the beginning of life but a continuation. And physical death is not the end of life but a continuation. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000663750
Withholding love is a form of self-sabotage, as what we withhold from others we are withholding from ourselves. -- Marianne Williamson

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000694027

Thought that is no longer limited, brings experience that is no longer limited -- Marianne Williamson

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000697583

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000710103

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000718443

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000763105
What we are left with then is the present, the only time where miracles happen. We place the past and the future as well into the hands of God.

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000785838

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000785870

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000828054

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000828269
When we think with love, we are literally co-creating with God. And when we're not thinking with love, since only love is real, then we're actually not thinking at all. We're hallucinating. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000828722

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000829641

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000848079
One day I looked at something in myself that I had been avoiding because it was too painful. Yet once I did, I had an unexpected surprise.

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000858858
There is a lot to look at when you are serious about transformation. You look at everything you've ever done, every circumstance you've ever been in, cleaning up everything in your past. Reconciling, forgiving others, forgiving yourself. It's a lot of work, actually. -- Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000858875

Marianne Williamson Quotes : pic 000893188
