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.

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.
