Your next reads…Marianne Williamson?

So I’m probably way late to the game in discovering Marianne, but hey at least I finally arrived. This isn’t going to be book reviews, but rather more of a for your information post. I started my spiritual journey with Wayne Dyer and was forever grateful for him presenting what I was feeling in my soul into simple words and concepts that I could understand and follow. I ventured out to many other spiritual authors, but always came back to Wayne. The others would get too caught up in holier than thou attitudes that instantly make my middle finger pop up.

Marianne leads me deeper into my spiritual journey where Wayne left off. I’ve known for the last few years that Love is my “thing” that deeply resonates within my soul and bubbles up. Marianne has shown me why and is helping guide me further along.

Some items I highlighted from A return to Love:

The perfect you is the love within you.

We’re like the spokes on a wheel, all radiating out from the same center.

Go for the light and darkness will disappear.

But God doesn’t need us to police the universe. Shaking our finger at someone doesn’t help them change.

asking that they be used as instruments through which the world is healed.

Few people have wronged us like we’ve wronged ourselves.

I’ve just started reading The gift of change. Here’s some items I highlighted so far:

when you’re worried about whether the human race is going to survive the next century, it feels odd to mention it at lunch.

The darkness is an invitation to light,

The world we see reflects the people we’ve become, and if we do not like what we see in the world, we must face what we don’t like within ourselves.

Okay. I’m done writing about my crush on Marianne. I have a pretty good vibe on our little posse here on WP, and believe you’ll find these books enlightening.

*** One thing I missed when I first published***

Pretty darn interesting fact! She ran for President in 2020!! Thank you, Rox, for the reminder😊

Sending peace and much love,

Dwight

  5. She ran for president in 2020 too. I thought I posted that comment already, but can’t see it now. I tried to post a link to her campaign. Maybe that’s why it didn’t post.

    1. Thank you, Rox. So neat that she ran and for once we got these concepts in front of people and into debates! Here’s that link =>. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/01/10/us/politics/marianne-williamson-drops-out.html I discovered it was on my end.

  7. Thank you for this, Dwight. I’ve never read Marianne, but have heard of her books. In a similar realm, I’d recommend Tara Brach’s podcast (love to listen with one earbud while walking the dog). She’s funny and insightful and deep – think you’d enjoy her talks.

  9. Wonderful timing! I have been looking for books like these. Thanks for posting. My word of the year for 2021 will be Better. These books should line up well with that. Finally on another Day 4 here today. First in a long while. Looking forward to this spiritual journey.

  10. Wayne is my favourite. I like Marianne.
    I also love Matt Kahn. Whatever arises, love that.

    His writing convinced me to repeat I love you to myself and it changed everything.

    Love is always the answer.
