quote du jour ~williamson – if our emotional stability…

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.

quote du jour ~williamson – no matter what…

No matter what is happening in our lives, we choose how we wish to think about it. And the greatest gift we give ourselves is often our willingness to change our minds. Despite what might seem to be the saddest and most intractable  situation, we have the power to believe that something else is possible, that things can change, that a miracle can happen.

quote du jour ~williamson – we are at a place…

We are at a place where few of us can move forward without the help of another…. Now we must conceive new life from deep inside ourselves. For that to occur, we must be in relationship. To co-create life, we need each other…. The miracle of love draws us to each other…. We will become, in each other’s arms…a new humanity. We will conceive something new. We will grow wings of divine compassion and intelligence, and the entire world will change.

~Marianne Williamson

quote du jour ~williamson – there are clearly times…

There are clearly times when quieting down and bringing our energy back into ourselves is a step toward inner peace. Yet the most powerful life is not one in which we bring ourselves back to our center when we have spun away from it, but rather one in which we seek to live from that center at all times.

~Marianne Williamson, Everyday Grace

quote du jour ~williamson – everything should be…

Everything should be interpreted as love or a call for love. When someone has not shown us their love, our power lies in knowing that they would have, had they known how. They are not wrong so much as they are wounded, and our role is not to judge them but to heal them. It is in cleaving to our own love that we awaken it in others.

~Marianne Williamson, Everyday Grace

quote du jour ~williamson

We cannot give what we do not have. We cannot bring peace to the world if we ourselves are not peaceful. We cannot bring love to the world if we ourselves are not loving. Our true gift to ourselves and others lies not in what we have but in who we are.

~Marianne Williamson

quote du jour ~williamson – from acceptance….

From acceptance and surrender at last there comes an awe-filled grace. And with grace comes the opening of our eyes. We begin to see that every circumstance and every situation is just a corner of an infinite universe. No corner is really so good or so bad, as it is simply a place the soul is in need of experiencing now. Whatever it is, it will not last. Whatever it is, it is leading to something better. And whatever it is, it is actually perfect.

~Marianne Williamson, Everyday Grace

quote du jour ~williamson – when you meet…

When you meet anyone, remember it is a holy encounter. As you see him, you will see yourself. As you treat him, you will treat yourself. As you think of him, you will think of yourself. Never forget this, for in him you will find yourself or lose yourself.

~Marianne Williamson

quote du jour ~williamson – something amazing…

Something amazing happens when we surrender and just love. We melt into another world, a realm of power already within us. The world changes when we change. The world softens when we soften. The world loves us when we choose to love the world.

~Marianne Williamson

saying what needs to be said

When you have something you truly need to say, there is someone who truly needs to hear it.

I’m sure I’m not the only blogger who has hit “publish” and later thought, Hmmm…I might have shared a little too much on that one. I’ve felt that way more than once in the last year, occasionally re-reading a post in the days after publishing it and feeling a little “exposed” by my own openness. But then I’ll get an email notification like the ones I got in response to yesterday morning’s post: Continue reading
