Marianne Williamson quotes

May we not succumb to thoughts of violence and revenge today, but rather to thoughts of mercy and compassion. We are to love our enemies that they might be returned to their right minds.

Our key to transforming anything lies in our ability to reframe it.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our Light, not our Darkness, that most frightens us.

Dear God, Please send to me the spirit of Your peace. Then send, dear Lord, the spirit of peace from me to all the world. Amen.

The practice of forgiveness is our most important contribution to the healing of the world.

As we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence actually liberates others.

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.

Some men know that a light touch of the tongue, running from a woman's toes to her ears, lingering in the softest way possible in various places in between, given often enough and sincerely enough, would add immeasurably to world peace.

We are not held back by the love we didn't receive in the past, but by the love we're not extending in the present.

The goal of spiritual practice is full recovery, and the only thing you need to recover from is a fractured sense of self.

Personal transformation can and does have global effects. As we go, so goes the world, for the world is us. The revolution that will save the world is ultimately a personal one.

Love knows how to form itself. God will do his work if we do ours. Our job is to prepare ourselves for love. When we do, love finds us every time.

If I choose to bless another person, I will always end up feeling more blessed.
