Marianne Williamson quotes: author slash activist on all the things.

“Your life shows up for you when you show up for your life.”

“Our self-perception determines our behavior.  If we think we’re small, limited, inadequate creatures, then we tend to behave that way, and the energy we radiate reflects those thoughts no matter what we do.  If we think we’re magnificent creatures with an infinite abundance of love and power to give, then we tend to behave that way.  Once again, the energy around us reflects our state of awareness.”

“You can live your life out of a circumstance or you can live your life out of a vision.”

“I think daily life is where the lessons come in – that’s where the tests and the growth come in.”

“Take a good look at your life right now.  If you don’t like something about it, close your eyes and imagine the life you want.  Now allow yourself to focus your inner eye on the person you would be if you were living this preferred life.  Notice the differences in how you behave and present yourself; allow yourself to spend several seconds breathing in the new image, expanding your energy into this.”

“You may believe that you are responsible for what you do, but not for what you think.  The truth is that you are responsible for what you think, because it is only at this level that you can exercise choice.  What you do comes from what you think.”

“Thought is cause; experience is effect.  If you don’t like the effects in your life, you have to change the nature of your thinking.”

“If a train doesn’t stop at your station, then it’s not your train.”

“Every aspect of life is pre-programmed to rise to its highest creative possibility.  We don’t have to make that happen, but we have to allow it to happen.  And that itself is the struggle of life: resisting the resistant mind.”

“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.”

“Unforgiveness is like drinking poison yourself and waiting for the other person to die.”

“Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves to recognize how good things really are.”

“Each of us has a unique part to play in the healing of the world.”

“Love is what we are born with.  Fear is what we learn.  The spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear and prejudices and the acceptance of love back in our hearts.  Love is the essential reality and our purpose on earth.  To be consciously aware of it, to experience love in ourselves and others, is the meaning of life.  Meaning does not lie in things.  Meaning lies in us.”

“We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, handsome, talented and fabulous?’  Actually, who are you not to be?”
