A Quote by Marianne Williamson on cause, effect, thought, and life

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.

A Quote by Marianne Williamson

I feel that as women we've allowed ourselves to be deluded by certain ideas that hold us back, such as the over- glorification of masculine consciousness. To me, liberation doesn't mean that I can think just like a man. Real liberation means that I can think, act, and be like a woman and receive equal respect, honor, and compensation. Liberation also means that even though I'm a woman I have masculine parts of my temperament which I can safely explore and integrate into my experience. In the same way, real liberation for men means that they can explore and integrate their feminine aspects of consciousness.

A Quote by Marianne Williamson

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 frightens us most.

We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?'

Actually, who are you not to be?

You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world.

There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that people won't feel insecure around you.

We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us; it's in all of us.

And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

A Quote by Marianne Williamson on achievements and contributions

The people who have achieved more than you, in any area, are only a half step ahead of you in time.  Bless them and praise their gifts, and bless and praise your own.  The world would be less rich without their contributuions, and it would be less rich without yours.  There's more than room for everyone; in fact, there's a need for everyone.

A Quote by Marianne Williamson on wisdom, counsel, and spiritual wisdom

Miracle workers learn to keep their own counsel.  Something that's important to know about spiritual wisdom is that, when spoken at the wrong time, in the wrong place, or to the wrong person, the one who speaks sounds more like a fool than a wise one.

A Quote by Marianne Williamson on chemicals, chemistry, and healing

Life itself is intelligence riding everywhere on chemicals.  We must not make the mistake of thinking the rider and the horse are the same.

A Quote by Marianne Williamson on fear, courage, liberation, community, and a course in miracles

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.

We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.

We are all meant to shine, as children we do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

A Quote by Marianne Williamson on bitterness, losing, and love

Whatever we focus on is bound to expand. Where we see the negative, we call forth more negative. And where we see the positive, we call forth more positive. Having loved and lost, I now love more passionately. Having won and lost, I now win more soberly. Having tasted the bitter, I now savor the sweet.
